I think Imbolc, Beltaine, Samhain and Lugnassah are the Celtic celebrations/Wiccan Wheel of the Year.  

Yule and Ostara (Eostre) are Heathen and also a part of the Wiccan Wheel of the Year.  But according to this website Ostara is also called Summer Finding.  http://www.ravenkindred.com/RBHolidays.html.  Ostara is a Germanic Goddess.

Thank you SatAset for the information, as well as the link to the Web site! I apologize for all confusion!

If the thread needs moved, it can be--just say something and one of us staffers will move it.  Smiley  I actually hadn't looked at what folder it was in until you said something and was surprised to find it in this one.  I'd thought Ostara was more Wiccan or maybe Celtic.  Is it common for Asatru to celebrate Ostara?

Ostara is definitely not traditionally Celtic, though it is in the Wiccan Wheel of the Year.

That's why I thought it was in this folder. Smiley

Hey all, this is a thread for everyone to gather, plan, pre-game, whatever about the upcoming festival of Ostara! How do you plan on celebrating this day?
The haircut sounds like a good idea! As for me, I'll be working in the morning. Afterward, I plan to get a free Rita's Italian ice to blot with. Cheesy Rita's gives away free ice every year the first day of spring. This is the first time I'll be giving it away though, and it is definitely a sacrifice! lol. I could get a second one later in the day probably, but that feels dishonorable. haha. I am also thinking about taking some seasonal photographs, although I'm not sure where yet. And probably baking something festive.

The weather has been warmer here lately and it's finally feeling like spring after all the snow. Yay!

Yeah, Ostara is a Heathen holiday too... although if non-Heathen people posted here too I guess it's no biggie. Smiley I can understand people not noticing the folder, and the OP didn't make it clear either. EDIT to clarify: But if non-Heathen people now wanted to make a more general thread too, that would be good as well. If the conversation could steer in the overall Asatru/Heathen direction, it would be appreciated. But as I said, no biggie.

That's one thing I liked about Asatru. When I first started learning about Wicca as a default when exploring Paganism, I always liked the Wiccan holidays, but not too much else about it. When I realized a long time later Heathen holidays were similar that made me happy! I don't go crazy with the holidays, but I like to recognize the solstices and equinoxes, and May Day and Winter Nights.

That's another thing: it seems like any Asatru or Heathen holiday has a dozen different names for basically the same thing! lol.

And I'm still like a baby on this forum! I just realized I've only been on here for 2 months, unlike the DC forum which I've been for 6 months, yet I have a better understanding of the rules here (lol, and less notoriety than I do there!).

Go ahead, rename away, and bravo to the italian ice! I plan on offering up some celery, carrot, turkey, and an apple earlier in the day. Want my Gods and Goddesses to stay healthy now.

Well, my plans are simple... VACATION!

My wife and I planned to take a vacation around this time to the Greediest Place on Earth (you get a chocolate chip cookie if you guess correctly Smiley ).  While driving we have set aside a nice 3 hour block for dinner and family time for this occasion.  Haven't found a decent restaurant though, but we do plan on stopping somewhere.  There do not appear to be many places that have German food on the menu in Georgia, at least along our route.  I will just offer up some of our veggies and fruits that we are taking to snack on, but maybe some of my protein shake (more sacred to me than beer... how is that possible?!?).

Lol, sounds like you're too healthy for your own good. Everything in moderation, after all!

When you said greediest place on earth, I originally thought about posting the Vatican (in part my UPG, but also because it would have been a play-on words with Vacation!), and then I thought about Las Vegas, but you mentioned Georgia along the route... By chance Disney World? That place is sweet, even though I'm 23 I still want to go there again, mostly because of nostalgia over the many cartoon movies that warped my mind.

I'd still have to argue the greediest place on earth would be Springfield, IL. They're not funding our schools the money they said they would, not picking up the road kill on the side of the road, and selling senate seats... On top of that, there aren't any cool roller coasters there. Trust me, it isn't a place to take the kids too.  Sad

Yes, it is Disney World that we are traveling to.  Mostly for my daughter and for my wife.  I have been there and done that, with little desire to return.  Now if it was Cedar Point we were talking... that is a horse of a different color (ooooo look it's purple!).  This trip will be fun for our spring break from college though.

( Not quoted because of general reply)
Even though the Spring Equinox, cónacht an earraigh, isn't consider one of the four great festivals of the Gaelic year, it's still an important day, and turning point of the year.
Also, The Equinox wasn't originally part of the Wiccan year either. The Lesser Sabbats were adopted when Gardner's mates wanted more days in the year to have parties.....never the less, good times.

Even if it's a "general response," you should still quote. Just quote the original post. Thanks!

Also, this doesn't seem like a general response at all, but it sounds as though you're replying to Star's post about which religions celebrate Ostara.
