Paulina Stuckey-Cassidy  The Christian Easter holiday is derived from the pagan holiday Eostre or Ostara, as can easily been by the name. Many times, Ostara and Easter occur relatively close to each other, but this year it is not the case, as Easter will take place on April 24, almost the latest date it can occur. Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is tied to the lunar calendar rather than a specific date - and can occur as early as March 22 or as late as April 25.

With my green pointy hat/   sitting proudly atop my head/   I remember the words/   that my Grandmother once said/   "Remember the Earth, child/   always hold Her close/   Treat her with kindness/   and respect Her the most/   For she is our Mother/   and we are Her babes/   And honoring Her brings us/   closer to the Olde Ways"/   So, give love to the Mother/   this Ostara and on/   And keep the Olde Ways alive/   in our daughters and sons.      ~ (c) Leandra 3/15/13
