Eggstra Special

Happy Eostre Weekend

EGGSTRA SPECIAL
You can hunt them… you can roll them,
you can scramble, fry or boil them.
Wrap them up in pretty paper,
paint them in pretty symbols and regalia.
 
Some are made with chocolate and cream,
tied in the prettiest bows, you’ve ever seen.
Some are born and laid from hens,
others, imitations, sold by retail men.
 
In many cultures around the world,
the egg is symbolic of fertility and rebirth.
However, you could never take away,
the eggstra special origins of Eostre day. 

Easter customs were initiated by the Celts,
celebrating their Sun God’s at local festivals.
Honouring a rebirth of the dawn of new light,
following the dark of Winter’s cold and chilly nights.

So, when did the Easter bunny appear?
it’s written in the history of goddess Eostre.

The date of Easter is not fixed, but instead is governed by the phases of the moon – how pagan is that? All the fun things about Easter are pagan. Bunnies are a leftover from the pagan festival of Eostre, a great northern goddess whose symbol was a rabbit or hare.
