Happy Imbolc!

Imbolc, Brigid’s Day, is a traditional festival marking the beginning of spring and is held on the 1st or 2nd of February—just about halfway between witer solstice and spring equinox. I prefer to call it Candlemas—as the lighting of candles was the Irish/Scottish ritual.

By lighting candles in these days, we are reminded of the return of light…and we honor the growing length of day light. We might also purchase flowers for our home or cut soft forest evergreens and bring them in. Gratitude.

Enjoy these days…
