With Ostara only two days away from this show, Lady T welcomes back Shandarramon to Wicce Women to discuss The Sabbat of Ostara, how and why we worship it and the many ways to celebrate it.

The discussion will focus upon the history of Easter and the rich associations between the Christian faith 'and The practices of Paganism.The Easter history and traditions that are practiced today "evolved" from Pagan symbols and celebrations: from the ancient Goddess Ishtar to Easter eggs and the Easter Bunny.

Easter, perhaps the most important of the Christian holidays, celebrates the Christ's resurrection from the dead following his death on Good Friday. . . a rebirth that is commemorated around the Vernal Equinox, historically a time of Pagan celebration that coincides with the arrival of spring and symbolizes the arrival of light and the awakening of life around us.

Eggs, Bunnies, The Dawn that arrives with Resurrection of life, and the celebration of Spring all serve to remind us of the cycle of rebirth and the need for renewal in our lives. As The Wheel turns once more,we are reminded of tolerance and as such gracefully accept the interwoven tradions of Pagans and Christians.

This informative show is a must 'see' and Lady T welcomes callers to offer their opinions and questions during this broadcast.
