It is the time of the rebirth. The spring equinox is at hand and the old winter slowly leaves us. We are are watching the yearly cyclce of growth and life once again taking the land and transforming it. This is a time for celebration.
Many religions have considered this to be a holy part of the year. To all of them I say Happy easter.
The norse and germanic year was split between two season, summer and winter. Summer began at the festival of Eostre close to the spring equinox.
This is a celebration of renewal, fertitlity, and rejoicing. The gift of colored eggs can be traced back to this ancient holiday. It was a way of wishing friends and family prosperity in the coming year. Eggs represented new life. The rabbit was regarded as a symbol of this holiday because of it's reemergence at this time of year, and it's amazing procreative abilities.
