Shrove Tuesday On March 4Th 2014 What Are The Pagan Origins
It is Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras this appointment on Heading 4th, 2014 this precedes the beginning of the Christian saint's day of Lent, the fasting time leading up to Easter. Do you handhold any plans? We totally cook pancakes, with dear and lemon of course!

Easter was at the outset a Pagan saint's day celebrating the Holy being Eostre, Astara or Oestara. This is of course the saint's day of Oestara, Oestre or Eostre on the Pagan Toddle of the Year, this follows Imbolc and heralds the beginning of font.

Lent is full-grown from the pagan tradition of trouble for forty days elder the death of the God Tammuz(one day for each appointment of his life) who was the son/husband of the Babylonion Holy being Ishtar. He was killed by a up and down boar and along with supposedly resurrected. Tammuz represents the seasons and the enclosure of life, prosperity and the harvest. Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras was a Pagan day that occurred ahead this fasting time to use up all the impressive foods ahead the fasting began. This appointment we handhold a dark moon on the day of Shrove Tuesday.
