The modern mythology that has sprung up about Eostre over the past 30 years or so fascinates me. A lot of non-Christians (whether or not they identify as 'pagan') enjoy family customs such as dying eggs, baking hot-cross buns, reading stories featuring the Easter bunny to their children, going on egg hunts, feasting on lamb and consuming far too many chocolate eggs. They see Easter as a celebration of spring as opposed to a celebration of the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. And yet they seem to feel a need to associate these customs with another deity - one who, for them, is the embodiment of springtime.
