Tickled Pink Easter Eggs, Bunny Lovin’ Goddessness

Yes, simultaneous to mourning Christ’s death (proper sad) and resurrection (believe what you will), Easter is also a pagan festival — a time to honour Eostre, the Great Mother Goddess of the Saxon people in Northern Europe; Goddess of fertility (hence the bunny and egg symbolism, and the ambience of spring — a season for mating).

Khazimah – letter to the unborn

Who says killing time on BuzzFeed is a waste? On a quiet Wednesday evening, I thought to quash the moral indignation that is, ‘willingly being sucked into the vortex of celebrity observation and consumer-scouting-nothingness’, and consequently, managed to form the below.
