I confess, Easter as a pagan is a lot more fun.
We celebrate the goddess Ostara, who reigns over Spring and fertility — hence eggs and rabbits actually make sense for us. At this point, I’m so wrapped up in my own little bubble, I have a hard time remembering that Christians also celebrate Easter; truthfully, I feel put off by all of the death symbolism slathered on a day that’s supposed to honor birth and renewal. But anyway, it’s a fairly big day for us, with baskets, egg hunts, and lots of food.
This holiday also typically falls in between some birthdays, which means that I’m busy baking, sewing, and trying to whip together enough magic to keep the kids dazzled. I love it all, but it sure keeps me busy.
So. Very. Busy.
