Name: Ostara, Vernal Equinox.
Pronounced: Oss-tara.
Date: 21st March.
Stage in Cycle: Maturing of the God.

Being a minor Sabbat this is more an observance of the equinox (equal length of day and night) than a stage in the cycle of the God and Goddess. However, there is still some importance.

Ostara is where the Christian's derive their word Easter. Easter falls on a different day every year, this may have something to do with the Equinox astrologically varying in days from year to year - however it is symbolically celebrated (as with all Solar Sabbats) on a set day - the 21st.

I'll be Joining my next-door neighbor to celebrate. Ostara this year.
As I am only learning, regarding my path this will be the first year that I will be with others for this Sabbat. I'll take along some spring flowers to decorate the house and coloured eggs as well as biscuits in the shape of hares to share.
How will others be celebrating?

My Family and I will do a Family get together and invite our next door neighbor over (she is a wonderful woman) We will also make gifts of Lavender cookies & Spring Bread loafs to the Lord and Lady and our guests along with some nice wine to give our thanks and ask for blessings in this new year.

Thanks for posting this Jaxom! You beat me to it. I will see if I have anything I can add to this.

Religion is for those who are afraid of going to Hell. Spirituality is for those who have already been there.
