Today is an especially wonderful sabbat for my family as it is the anniversary of the handfasting of Damon and myself.
|For some reason we didn't get a really good photo of the blanket and altar set up but you can see part of it in the background here - offering bowls, flowers, water, etc.|

This marks the Spring Equinox. This is the Pagan "Easter" - or rather, this is the day that Christians borrowed to be their Easter. It is traditionally the day of equilibrium, neither harsh winter nor the merciless summer, and is a time of childish wonder. Painted eggs, baskets of flowers and the like are generally used to decorate the house.
