Pagan Holiday for April 11, 2010

In many ancient European calendars, today was marked Ostara, in honor of the Ancient Goddess which the Christian Easter sprang from. Ostara found her way into many belief systems from the Norse to the Celts. She was famous for growth, rebirth, renewal. And did you know that while she was notorious for protecting small children, she was also popular for entertaining them with chicken eggs which would hatch baby bunnies.  Now you know where the Easter Bunny and egg derived from.

Happy Ostara to all! Here’s wishing everyone a fabulous Sun-day.
