Happy Eostre!

Yes, that’s right. Eostre not easter. Easter it may be commonly known as, but it certainly isn’t christian. But then most so called christian holidays aren’t christian.

The date of Eostre is not fixed, but is governed by the phases of the moon, a tradition dating back to ancient times. The celebrations would include the giving of eggs, eating sweet cakes, and in Northern Europe, the celebration of the hare. The hare is the sacred animal to the Goddess Eostre.

Even the ressurection story has been stolen from the more ancient Pagan stories.

Egyptian Osiris was slain by his brother, Set, and resurrected by his wife, Isis. Sumerian Inanna was hung naked to a stake, descended into the underworld, and was then resurrected. These are but two examples. The Pagan myths from around the world all have similar stories.

So Happy Eostre! May the Goddess bless you all.
