|May you find pookas galore this holiday weekend.|
And so another holiday weekend comes. This one is associated with fertility, growth, new life and new beginnings. So many of our secular holidays have their roots in Judeo/Christian as well as older Pagan rites, Easter being one of them. Of course there's Passover and Resurrection Sunday. But going back even farther than those things, and to different parts of the world, there is also colored eggs, bunnies, spirit animals, new chicks, sweet candies -- and hunts through the green, green grasses of spring for the last one of those. Oh, and fertility rites. A lot of fertility rites.
You could probably pick any faith tradition and find a holiday which happens this time of year, so whatever you are celebrating, I hope it's a happy time for you and yours!
