This is my first time celebrating Easter in a very long time.
This year, I've decided to celebrate it the most comfortable way I know how.
My Easter Alter
Consists of bright colored candles, two halves of a geode.
A nest of bird eggs, and bird bones, crystals, feathers, acorns, moss, and incense.
Easter is a time of rebirth, and awakening. The Earth is now in spring and things are in abundance once again. Easter originated from a Pagan holiday that followed the Lunar Calendar, the first Sunday after the first full moon of the Spring Equinox.
It can also be celebrated on the Vernal or Spring Equinox. Easter is also known as Ostara, or Eostre.
It is a holiday that symbolizes baby animals, eggs, bunnies and spring.
I grew up thinking Easter was something different, and honestly didn't care to celebrate it,
or I did without putting full heart into anything.
Last year I celebrated by decorating eggs.
This year Sterling and I planted grass in the back yard, and wild flowers around the tree lines.
We asked the Earth to grow and gave our yard some water.
We will also light the candles on our alter and make some goals for new beginnings.
I really do consider myself so lucky to have found a partner with the same beliefs that I have.
