Long ago in the Kingdom of Northumbria there lived a wise scholar by the name of Bede. He knew many langauges and wrote about science, music, theology and history. Most of his writings have survived to this day. One of them mentions a goddess called Eostre. She was worshiped by the pagans who lived there in the ages past. The pagans celebrated Eostre as a deity of dawn, spring, and birth. One of the months of the year was named Eosturmonath and celebrated with great feasts. Eggs and hares were consecrated to the goddess as people prayed for fertility. Eventually, a new religion spread across the land and the old gods become a distant memory. All of them, but Eostre.

One night, a group of druids, unwilling to let go of their beloved goddess, had secretly gathered among the roots of a scared oak. At dawn a giant have come out of the grove and approached them. The druids recognized the messenger of their goddess and blessed the hare. They had nothing of value so they offered their own voices as a sacrifice. The hare then spoke to them of a day hundreds of years inthe future,when during the month of Eosturmonath a wonderful creature will hatch. It will speak all languages and understand all people.

The druids were confused. They thought to preserve Eostre, but instead were told of something else entirely. They couldn't speak anymore, but the leader took his staff and scribbled, "What about Eostre?" in the sand. The hare laughed. "Don't worry about Eostre," it said. "Nothing will happen to her. People will continue celebrating her feast, continue to decorate their houses with eggs and bunnies, and will always wait for the spring and dawn and birth. In their actions, Eostre will live on forever." With that the hare stood up and all could see that it had laid an egg. It then gave the egg to the elder and bid him to keep it safe.

The old men took the egg with them, and kept it well hidden. Eventually, it was lost during a Viking attack and nobody knew of its whereabouts for centuries. Historians suspect that it was taken to Vinland by Leif Ericson at which point it vanished again. It can only be assumed that in the years that followed, the egg somehow made its way south along the coast. There are unconfirmed rumors that George Washington, as he crossed the Delaware, had an egg in his possession that matches the description of Eostre's Egg.

A few centuries later the egg somehow ended up collecting dust on a shelf in one of Valve's secret labs. About a month ago, several STS admins had a dream, in which an enormous hare commanded them to go to that lab and and retrieve the egg. None of them took it seriously at first, but once they realized that they all saw the same vision, they went to look for it. Currently, it is located in STS research facility where the admins chant and sing to it in all available languages. All of the above may or may not have happened exactly as told, but the important thing is that this egg... is about to hatch.
