Ostara - Wicca

Description Festival of renewal, rejoicing and fertility, although for most of the Northern People, the forces of Winter are still at full sway. In ancient times, the gift of colored eggs to one's friends and loved ones was a way of wishing them well for the coming season; a magical ritual of prosperity and fertility. According to Ostara, their customs have survived into the modern holiday of Easter as Easter eggs and Easter bunny (the rabbit was one of Eostre's sacred animals)
