    Ostara, Easter, or Vernal Equinox depending on what you believe. [​IMG] For me it's Ostara. [​IMG] I hope everyone is having an awesome day! [​IMG]

    Easter for us, although the seasonal timing of the original event is off from the calender date we celebrate it. Not an issue for me personally still having a great day but relatives are not here yet either. [​IMG]

    I give the equinox a nod but I don't observe it. I don't follow any particular religious tradition, but the passing of the seasons are a large focus to me since I garden year round and have to watch the season and weather carefully.

    For DL it is Easter.

    Thanks for the post welcoming some of the other spring holidays.
