Spring Equinox and Handmade for Easter
March 20, 2016
Easter is the main festival we celebrate in England that I feel most uncomfortable about because I am not Christian. I feel that Christmas has evolved to mean something different to people – often it’s about celebrating time with family; however Easter is purely and simply about Jesus. For the last fifteen years or so I’ve done a mini easter egg hunt for my kids at Ostara, the spring equinox, which this year falls today. The Pagan religion interests me and resonates with me, although if pushed to label myself I’d say I was agnostic, bordering atheist with leanings towards Paganism, Buddhism and Christianity! So anyway, whatever your beliefs, I’ve put together a selection of handmade items that would be lovely as gifts at this time of year….
