In ancient European tradition, Ostara marks the spring equinox. A time to welcome the coming of the sun, growth, renewal, rebirth, and planting. Ostara is a Goddess of Spring and the Dawn (the sun rises in the East). The hare is the animal sacred to Ostara. As legend goes, Ostara found an injured bird. In order to save the bird she transformed it into a hare. However, it wasn't a complete transformation and the hare retained its ability to lay eggs. It is also very interesting to take a look at the European hare. They are normally nocturnal but completely change their habits during the spring when mating season is at its peak. They can be seen running around all day during a phenomenon known as "March Madness." The egg is a symbol of both Ostara and new life. To honor Ostara and the coming of spring people would hang colored eggs from trees. A feast was held for Ostara on the first full moon after the vernal equinox.
