Why do atheists celebrate Easter?

My sister is a hard core atheist, but still celebrates Easter with the chocolate, eggs, dinner, etc. This is very strange to me. I am genuinely curious. As someone of the Christian faith, I would not celebrate Hanukkah or another holiday associated with another religion. Like I said, I am seriously curious. Thoughts?

Is she celebrating the Christian parts of Easter (ie church, etc), or the secular/Pagan parts (ie eggs, bunnies, chocolate, etc)?

Because it is fun. And 'celebrating' Easter isnt about any of the things your sister is doing. Think of it as a spring festivus.
