Traditions include coloring eggs, dedicating new plantings, fertility rites and new workings...generall y "springy" things! Traditional fertility deities are considered at this time of year, including Eostere, Freya, Cybele, Flora, Osiris, etc. More info can be found on this page: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/ostarathespringequinox/a/OstaraDeities.htm

(see the delightful banishing of the chocolate bunny ritual for kids here) http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/ostarathespringequinox/ht/LBRChocoRabbit.htm

My guess is I won't have feedback on my first swap by the 22nd, as I had to send to Australia. But maybe the Postal Gods will favour me and I'll get in under the sign-up deadline. Prayers and spells to speed my package along will be much appreciated!

I'm going to sit this one out, but still chat and watch. My birthday is next month and right around send outs and I am afraid I will get distracted and not send on time. I will be back for Beltane though.
