In ancient Roman religion, the Fordicidia was a festival of fertility, held April 15, that pertained to farmingand animal husbandry. It involved the sacrifice of a pregnant cow to Tellus, the ancient Roman goddess of the Earth, in proximity to the festival of Ceres (Cerialia) on April 19.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FordicidiaThe Fordicidia was named from fordae cows; a forda cow is one that is carrying an unborn calf; because on this day several pregnant cows are officially and publicly sacrificed in the curiae, the festival was called the Fordicidia from fordae caedendae, 'the pregnant cows which were to be slaughtered.'"
there is a Ceres in Boston connected to earth worship:
"Ceres, a non-profit organization, is an advocate for sustainability leadership. Ceres mobilizes a network of investors, companies and public interest groups to accelerate and expand the adoption of sustainable business practices and solutions to build a healthy global economy.
Founded in 1989, Ceres' core mission is to mobilize investor and business leadership to build a thriving, sustainable global economy.
In 2007, Ceres was named one of the 100 most influential players in corporate governance by Directorship magazine. Ceres was a recipient of the Skoll Foundation Award for Social Entrepreneurship in 2006, as well as a recipient of the Fast Company Social Capitalist Awards in 2008.

update: "But following the first reports of explosions at today’s Boston Marathon, the minds of many flashed upon the ending of the 2010 film Four Lions, in which a small group of terrorists target the London Marathon". (LINK)
from the book of john d. christian (p.64): "Roman pagan Fordicia is the same feast as the feast of "Ishtar", consecrated to the mother-earth goddess "Ishtar" of Babylon...(In Babylon, Ishtar was symbolized by a LION - that is why commodus clothed himself in a lion's skin in the Temple of the Earth). The FOUR great Roman feasts..."
