    (Gods of Foreign Lands) Blossom, the Phirphan goddess of first flowers

    The myth of the Moon Gazing Hare reflects ancient beliefs. Pagans believed that seeing a moon gazing hare would bring growth, re-birth, abundance, new-beginnings and good fortune. The hare is known to be sacred to the goddess Eostre and eventually became known as the Easter bunny.

    Brian Froud's World of Faerie

    Eostre is the Anglo-Saxon\Norse Goddess of Spring and of the East. The new Christian religion took the name and direction to make their holiday of Easter. As with many a God and Goddess, she has a special time, Dawn. “The dawning of a new spring day” is a saying that incorporates the Goddess’s time with the reason for the celebration, anew and rebirth. Her symbol is the Egg and her favorite animal is the Hare.
