Well, the spring equinox is upon us, and I was just wondering what people here plan on doing to celebrate?

I'm still pretty new to the theology, as well as the current cultural practices here, but do followers of Celtic ideology celebrate the equinox? From what I understand, an Ostara celebration is not typically associated with it, but I could be wrong.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, and please feel free to talk about anything cool you've got lined up! I'm getting a haircut, and going to a great restaurant called the Celtic Knot, so it should be fun!  Cheesy

I do plan to celebrate the Equinox, but you're right that it's not really a part of Celtic tradition - as far as I know!! However, the equinoxes and solstices are important for me personally, and I'll specifically choose honor my Norse heritage/ancestors on that day. Besides, most of my Pagan friends follow the Wheel of the Year, so it's easy for us to gather for Ostara - we'll probably get together with those families to celebrate and do an activity or craft. Probably we'll paint flowerpots and plant some seeds, that worked well for us before! On the actual day of the Equinox I'll have a special feast with my husband and kids, and I'm going to try to find some nice Ostara/Equinox story to read to the kiddos, and if we don't plant seeds with our friends, we'll do so then - and either that sunrise or that sunset I'll do a blot.

Not very Celtic, but that's what we've got planned. Smiley
