Will you celebrate Easter or Ostara or both?

Ostara is the spring (vernal) equinox and occurs this year on March 20, 11:02am GMT in the Northern Hemisphere (simultaneously the autumnal equinox/Mabon occurs in the Southern Hemisphere).

If celebrating Easter, will you be doing the full Christian celebration from Good Friday onwards? Will you go to church?

If celebrating Ostara, will you do so on March 20 or on Easter Sunday (March 31) during Easter holidays or different aspects on both?

We'll combine both on Sunday(which is Easter).

Easter Bunny will come and we'll do some Ostara things. The day before, at least this year, is my oldest boys birthday so we wont be doing anything amazing but we'll do something crafty and fun with the boys and, if Dans up to it, something just for he and I that night.

As a side note, my middle boy(Avery) is ALL over Spring coming this Wednesday. I think he's expecting to wake up and the trees be all green and leafy and the grass too LOL. He's all over how the leaves will start growing again on Wednesday and such. He's definately the child connected to the Earth cuz he LOVES seasons and the moon.

The Easter Bunny will make a stop by our house, but I will be celebrating Ostara, not Easter.

I would celebrate both if hubby was home both days.


If celebrating Easter, will you be doing the full Christian celebration from Good Friday onwards? Will you go to church?

If we celebrate Easter, we normally just go to in-laws for egg hunt and lunch.

If celebrating Ostara, will you do so on March 20 or on Easter Sunday (March 31) during Easter holidays or different aspects on both?

We will celebrate Ostara on Tuesday. My husband has dinner plans with friends on Wednesday.

We will be celebrating both since Ostara is important to me and DH and his family are Christians so Easter is important to him.

We don't celebrate Easter in a religious way. The Easter Bunny visits and we spend the day with family and friends. This year we are going camping which will be great.

Mabon here so I will be doing something for that.
