Ostara is one of the eight seasonal festivals of the Wheel of the Year, the middle of spring, this is a time for celebrating the balance between extremes that is found amid the seasons. Ostara falls on the spring equinox on March 20-21. The name of the holiday comes from the name of the Germanic goddess of the dawn and fertility - Eostre. The holiday is associated with the awakening of the land, the first grasses and flowers, the first sprouts in the fields, the beginning of agricultural work - depending on the climatic zone.
One of the symbols of Ostara is the egg. There are opinions that at the spring celebrations that preceded Easter, people exchanged brightly colored eggs, symbolizing potential, fertility, renewal and vitality. Thus, eggs have been associated with this season for thousands of years. So the tradition of egg painting is pre-Christian and very ancient.
