Ostara, Goddess of the Spring. Also called Ostare,
Goddess of the dawn. Ceremonies occurring at sunrise on hilltops,
celebrating growth and renewal of life,
Prayers were given to assure the abundance of crops.
Eggs were eaten and exchanged as Talismans in her honor.

Eggs were left on the graves as a testament tothe belief in reincarnation.
  
Ostara by many names:

Ostara, Lady Day, Alban Eiler, or the First Point of Aries,
names by which the Vernal Equinoz is known. 


May the Goddess Bless You this Ostara Season!
