My Sincere Salutations to Spring!
Completely unrelated to that thought, funny thing. At work, our local YMCA (it is a Christian Association for a reason), there were so many people talking about Easter and how they celebrate it. There is an Indian woman (fresh from India, 2 years ago) that was wondering what the meaning of the eggs and such were. One of the mothers replied that the egg symbolizes the rebirth of Christ. Then the woman nodded and said, "What about the bunny?" The other woman had no idea. I chose this time to chime in with something along the lines of, "Since Easter is based on a Pagan celebration for Spring that predates Christianity, the rabbit and egg symbolize fertility." I added in some other non-specific info, so as to not give myself away, but the women were both like "Wow! I never knew that!" That felt good.
I feel a very busy time in my life approaching in these next few weeks. Please know that I haven't quit blogging (in the event of a large gap), just trying to take advantage of all of the opportunities the Great Goddess has placed out for us.
Blessings of Spring to All!!
