Ostara and the Dancing Bunnies

Post by John T Mainer on Sat Mar 05, 2011 11:29 am



Most of us celebrate Easter in similar fashion in the Western world, but few outside of Paganism remember the reasons why. Here is the story of the origins of the Easter celebration, and of the goddess Easter's (or Ostara's) acquisition of her famous Easter Bunny.

Absolutely beautiful, John. I am so honored and thrilled that you shared that story with us. It sent chills down my spine, it was so lovely and lovingly told.

Your words on YS and your manner in telling this story suggest to me that you are both a powerful man and a mighty storyteller. Please give us more such stories!

Is this Ostara story part of a published collection? If so, I'd very much like to own a copy. Do give the specifics if you will.

With deep gratitude for your generosity as well as your providing an inspiring and delightful experience, I say, "Well met!"

The story is one of two from our first book, Kindertales
Kindertales.
This story is a retelling of the original myth of Ostara or Easter.

The second story is one that bridges the gap between ancient and modern practices, which is an original tale that I will upload soon so they can be a set. It is also in the first volume of Kindertales. We actually have two volumes out now through Lulu
