Happy Ostara everyone!
So, what do you do when you are the only pagan in the house on Ostara and it’s raining kittens and puppies outside? MARATHONS. I’m currently on the hunt for movies, tv episodes, and books that relate to Spring, birth, and balance. So far, I’ve come up with some of my favorite episodes of The Vicar of Dibley and Clatterford (can you tell I’m addicted to brit-coms?); the movies Sex and the City 2 and Steel Magnolias (SatC2 was already playing on tv and I totally got sucked in, but there’s some good Spring, renewal, love, and sex themes in there!); and the book Clockwork Angel (no relation to Spring, but I wanna read it anyway). I may make some lemon sugar cookies, and have scrambled eggs for dinner tonight for good measure. Who says pagan celebrations have to be done any particular way? It’s my party and I’ll veg if I want to. I think Eostre will be pleased. Happy Ostara everyone!
Love and Art,
