EASTER – SPRING FESTIVAL

by eirenehogan

There is nothing like that feeling when, for the very first time after winter, you walk outside and feel the slight warmth in the air, and smell the scent of fresh blossoms. Ahh, spring! You can virtually feel life oozing in the air. What a wonderful time for a festival.

Easter is the modern (post pagan) Spring Festival, but in Australia it is celebrated in Autumn, which makes it more like Halloween, which is the Anglo-Celtic autumn festival.

Australia have no religious festival in spring, but I feel the football grand finals in late September, and the Melbourne Cup in early November are our modern equivalent of a spring festival, when we celebrate the coming of warmth, and look forward to relaxing as the end of the year approaches and we can enjoy Xmas (our summer festival) and relax by the beach during a long lazy summer’s day.
