Ēostre or Eástre, mainly Ostara, is a Germanic goddess of fertility and rebirth in paganism, argued to be related to other Indo-European dawn goddesses and to have various influences on Easter customs, incorporated by the Christians when it became clear that this millennia-old tradition (like the Christmas tree and other examples) could not be eradicated from Norse memory.
