Ostara celebrates the spring equinox. When is the Ostara 2011 ritual, what is the date?

I won't be able to have my Ostara celebrate outside in the same vein as previous years.
Ostara is the German goddess of fertility, she is recognized by pagans all over the world.
How are you going to celebrate Ostara 2011 ritual?

March 21, 2011, is widely-known as the Spring Equinox, and also a holiday that came to be known as Ostara.

Pagans celebrate Ostara by simple rituals, and by holding a feast, with all the types of food that would still be in the larder in the old times.
Ostara is named after a German goddess called Eostre, a fertility goddess associated with new life.

For people in the early Germanic countries, Ostara was a time to celebrate planting and the new crop season.
Celebrations at this time of year share common roots with themes of death and rebirth.
