We have chickens! It means we're going to eat eggs...A LOT!
They got over it pretty darn quick and I haven't heard a complaint since.
So, in honor of the Spring Equinox, I'm going to devote my next several posts to eggs. Oh, and since today actually is the Spring Equinox, I'm going to blow your mind with some interesting facts. Who doesn't love a good fact?
~The word equinox is Latin and means equal night. So, twice a year the sun crosses directly over the equator and we have the same amount of day as night. That's today.
~Spring equinox is all about fertility. Makes sense right, what with everything starting to grow and make babies? Well in Germany they celebrate a spring holiday all about fertility and the Saxon fertility Goddess Eostre, who has a couple things named after her: estrogen and Easter.
~And finally, there are a couple of almost universal symbols of spring and fertility, the rabbit and the egg. They are both used to symbolize the season in many cultures.
So, yay spring.
