Ostar

A celebration of fertility (rabbits); the rebirth of life (eggs), which are dyed with pastel colors of blooming flowers. Children would toss a raw egg high into the air (to the goddess), and if the egg is caught without breaking, prosperity will shine for the year (just one of the rituals). This is a day of celebration that dates back at least 3000 years, all the way back to my ancestral family. Happy Ostar (“Eástre”),  may Love and new life bless you.

  1. Í have to ask you a question. I am having a bit of a dilemma with someone that may or may not have a valid site and it`s been filling up my reader. I`m told the same person has appeared on your site. Do you know how to access him? I did a post specifically about him, my latest one. I cannot find a way to unfollow him. Nor do I know how he suddenly appeared in my reader, and frankly, has dominated it. If you could look at his name and see if you recognize it. I’d really appreciate it!!!

    • Ah, yep, I found him. It’s a marketing site. I don’t know how to unfollow him, ’cause I didn’t follow him. I’m not sure how he showed up on your reader. I guess you could go into the settings and followers and delete or block him. I’d have to research that.
