OSTARA is coming up on the 22nd September

Standard

Ostara, or the spring equinox, is the second spring festival in the pagan calendar. Similar to the German word Ostern (Easter), the name is based on the Saxon spring fertility goddess Eostre. The goddess, as legend has it, found a wounded bird and in order to heal it she turned it into  a hare , but it still kept laying eggs. Hence: the Easter bunny.
