Ostara Festival – Cross Earrings, Purple

Ostara is a Celtic/European nature festival that celebrates new life in spring. The trees are green, flowers bloom and birds wait for their eggs to hatch. It is not long before baby birds appear and test their wings. Other baby animals and human ones may take a little longer. The theme of spring conquering winter is universal! Ostara is a spring fertility festival with symbols of the sun, eggs, hare (or rabbit), first flowers and the goddess. Eggs are painted, Ostara trees are decorated, hot buns are made with the sun wheel cross on them. The Christians adopted and merged pagan Ostara with Easter in order to convert more people to Christianity. Many of the cultural Celtic/European nature festivals are not lost, but in plain sight. Jesus died on the cross and is said to have risen after death – winter dies and spring is reborn. The original message of Jesus as a prophet of change may have been understood by the Celtic/European people; love kindness, fairness, and respect should be universal. Today most people celebrate their pagan or Christian festivals or both. Celebrate with all the pretty Ostara/Easter colours with a picnic or gathering at your home. Be thankful that life thrives and always protect nature.
