Bonk Holiday is Over
Hi everyone who reads my blogs hope all is well and you enjoyed your Easter Bonk holiday. I few interesting facts that you may not know but those Pagans knew how to enjoy themselves.
Anglo-Saxon pagans celebrated this time of rebirth by invoking Ēostre or Ostara, the goddess of spring, the dawn, and fertility. Particularly in ancient times, fertility was of singular importance to ensure the survival of a species or group of people (after all, if you did not get it on, there would be no future generations). To celebrate nature’s “rebirth,” the ancients would hold festivals in April to honor the Goddess, which most likely included lavish sex rituals, and even full-on orgies. Sounds good to me.
The celebration of fertility was replaced with the subtle, innocuous symbol of the “egg,” and the hare became the Easter Bunny because…well, rabbits reproduce quickly and in large numbers. (Ever heard the term “they f*ck like rabbits”?). Oh, and take a wild guess at Ēostre’s sacred animal symbol. (That’s right, it’s the hare.)
Ashley Every bunny have a hopping good time. Hop over to my place for an even better one!! Xx
