The Dictionary of Mythology explains that she was also a fertility goddess. Some Easter customs are connected with this. For example, eggs “have been prominent as symbols of new life and resurrection,” says the Encyclopædia Britannica. Also, rabbits have long been used as symbols of fertility in pagan worship.

And a P.S. it’s not always easy observing/living/speaking truth… and because of this… at times, it’s not easy being an object of hatred, looking on the hopeful/bright-side:)… am not hanging from a stake nor my hands nailed to it… (yet). I don’t fear death, fear what my life could be by not living the truth. If truth brings consequence… lies are worse; that’s for sure.
Peace & Truth to You Reader 🙂
