Did you know that Spring is the season for festivals of rebirth?
The Anglo-Saxons first marked the Vernal Equinox with their Eastre festival, replete with symbols of fertility and renewal, such as the egg. A precursor to Easter, the Anglo-Saxon festival may even have inspired the modern-day Easter bunny. Renewal is also a common theme in the Christian holiday of Easter and the Jewish holiday of Passover.
