Eostre is the Anglo-SaxonNorse Goddess of Spring and of the East. The new Christian religion took the name and direction to make their holiday of Easter. As with many a God and Goddess, she has a special time, Dawn. “The dawning of a new spring day” is a saying that incorporates the Goddess’s time with the reason for the celebration, anew and rebirth. Her symbol is the Egg and her favorite animal is the Hare.
DryadA dryad (Δρυάδες, sing.: Δρυάς) is a tree nymph, that is a female spirit of a tree, in Greek mythology. In Greek drys signifies "oak". Thus dryads are specifically the nymphs of oak trees, though the term has come to be used for all tree nymphs in general. They were normally considered to be very shy creatures, except around the goddess Artemis, who was known to be a friend to most nymphs.
