Yes, that’s right. Eostre not easter. Easter it may be commonly known as, but it certainly isn’t christian. But then most so called christian holidays aren’t christian.
The date of Eostre is not fixed, but is governed by the phases of the moon, a tradition dating back to ancient times. The celebrations would include the giving of eggs, eating sweet cakes, and in Northern Europe, the celebration of the hare. The hare is the sacred animal to the Goddess Eostre.
Even the ressurection story has been stolen from the more ancient Pagan stories.
Egyptian Osiris was slain by his brother, Set, and resurrected by his wife, Isis. Sumerian Inanna was hung naked to a stake, descended into the underworld, and was then resurrected. These are but two examples. The Pagan myths from around the world all have similar stories.
So Happy Eostre! May the Goddess bless you all.

I'm an EFT practitioner, Matrix Reimprinter, Colour Therapist, Reiki Healer, Tarot Reader, And Astrologer.
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) was pioneered by Gary Craig, tapping on acupressure points to help a person heal themselves. It proved to be extremely effective and has been taken up by many people worldwide. The therapy was taken further by Karl Dawson who found it very effective to enable the client to access memories, many hidden, sometimes pre-birth. By accessing the memory in the matrix the client is able to identify the root of problem areas, and with the help of the practitioner address the initial cause of trauma, phobias, addictions, pain, etc.
I also use colour therapy and reiki as separate therapies, but they also work well together. It's no coincidence that nurses wear blue - blue is a very calming and relaxing colour. Just the thing you need when recovering. Too much blue, however, can lead to withdrawal and in some cases depression. We've all heard the term: 'I'm having a blue day'. This is just one colour example.
Reiki is a very relaxing complementary healing technique that originated in the East. It is used worldwide as an effective therapy. The practitioner allows universal energy to flow through them into the client, to help the client recover.
The therapies mentioned above are complementary. In orders words they can be used alongside modern medical practices. I do not diagnose or prescribe. Diagnosis and medication is dealt with by your GP or hospital consultant.
I've been reading the tarot and runes for over 30 years both in the UK and internationally. I'm also a member of the Astrological Association of Great Britain after studying astrology through the Mayo School of Astrology. I offer Natal Charts, Reports, and Readings.
