Welcome Spring as we Celebrate Imbolc!

February first, marks the ancient pagan festival Imbolc (i mbolg), symbolising the beginning of Spring. It marks the halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. Traditionally associated with Celtic Saint Brigid.


Imbolc derives from the Old Irish i mbolg meaning in the belly, a time when sheep began to lactate and their udders filled and the grass began to grow. Fire played an integral part in celebrations, symbolising the return of the sun, with brighter days ahead. Especially welcomed this year!


It's a sign of hope and promise after what feels like a long and bleak, cold few months 🌸
