Imbolc is coming

Imbolc is upon us in just a couple of weeks.


What is Imbolc? It is a returning of the light. It is a day of hope, of reassurance that the sun will come back and grace us with its verdant light. It is ‘breaking the back of winter’. Whether you are Christian and celebrate St. Brigid’s day, or Pagan and honor the goddess Brigit, welcome the light’s return into the world.


So make a Brigid’s Cross, light a candle, leave some food and drink so Brigid will bless your home. If you live near a well, visit and enjoy the blessing.

A great article on Imbolc here:
