The sacred hare awakens the Goddess Eostre/Ostara from Her long slumber. The northern hemisphere becomes green and fertile once again; we are blessed with the sun's warmth and the earth's abundance.
This is also the time of year when we partake of Holy Communion by ingesting the chocolatey goodness of Her sacred rabbit. Chant the ancient mantra while doing so: nom nom nom!
Now go ye and fulfill your religious duty.
