Sunday open chat: happy Ēostre, everyone!
eggs and bunnies and spring fertility festivals, oh my
hey folks — I’ve got no particular topic for today’s open chat, but since so many religious festivals are overlapping on this day, I’d like to say:
to all my Muslim friends, happy 19th day of Ramadan.
to all my Jewish friends, happy 4th day of Passover.
to all my Christian friends, happy Easter.
to all my Pagan friends, happy Festival of Ēostre.
wait, happy what?
oh, you don’t know about Ēostre? you should definitely get to know her.
Ēostre is the pagan fertility goddess of humans and crops. The traditional colors of the festival are green, yellow and purple. The symbols used are hares and eggs, representing fertility (because we all know that bunnies breed like, well, rabbits) and new life.
eggs and bunnies. huh. sounds familiar.
and if, like me, you’re somewhat atheistic, just have yourself a great day, wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing.
