  • Candle Wreath for Imbolc

    P1090837

    Just finished putting together my candle wreath to celebrate the very old Celtic traditions of Brigid's Day or Imbolc - a celebration that takes place midway between the winter solstice and spring equinox to celebrate the advancing warmth and light of the sun as it warms and prepares the earth for spring sowing.

    The holiday is often marked by lighting candles, building fires on freshly cleaned hearths, eating pancakes, and planting seeds or bulbs in little indoor pots.
