A Bite of Spring

Thursday’s Bite

celebrating the rites of spring

The spring equinox occurred yesterday. (If you live down under it was the fall equinox.) The day when the minutes of daylight and dark are perfectly balanced. It’s when the pagan religions celebrate spring. Check out my post on banning Easter Egg Hunts to see where I was last year when the days equalized. And today I’m posting links so you can explore different aspects of spring. Happy linking!

  1. One day, I would love to learn more about the equinox celebrations the power of nature behind them. The movement of the sun in the sky, the seasons, God in action, is mind-blowing in it’s intricate orchestration.

    Perhaps you should design an eCourse, Jessica.

    • Sun worship for the masses? LOL Seriously, that’s a big topic since many of the historical religions of the world were sun worshiping, or built their calendar around the sun’s cycles. Maybe someday when I have time!
