Ostara is one of the four solar holidays in the wheel of the Year. Its name comes from Eostre, the Germanic goddess associated with various aspects related to the renewal of life. Ostara is celebrated on the vernal equinox marking the beginning of spring. It is a joyous holiday centered on fertility, rebirth, and growth. Symbolically, the Goddess is reawakening with the warming ground and the young God is merry and playful.
In my neck of the woods, we are having on Ostara celebration. Scotch Eggs, fruit trays, meat trays, sweet breads, drinks. It should be fun. We have about 10-12 people coming to this. I'm excited about it :)
Ok.. going back to work!
Have a lovely first day of Spring!!
