Happy Imbolc

Leave a comment

How ironic that this holiday, meant to lead us into the light and spring, is greeted this year with a massive snowstorm.  As I speak, the neighbor’s snowblower is roaring in the background, strong winds are tearing around the corners of the house, and the furnace is rumbling to keep us warm and toasty.  Here in Nebraska ice was the main problem in Omaha, causing several accidents and closing Interstate 80.  Because of the high winds, salt couldn’t be used on the roads– it would just blow away– so black ice was a nasty surprise for many drivers.

Tonight we lit candles for this pagan holiday, in tribute to the Goddess Bridget…to welcome in the light and spring, and to banish winter.  We ask Bridget to protect those out and about, to keep us warm and safe within our homes, to heighten our level of creativity, and to show us the three faces of the goddess– the maiden, mother, and crone–  along with the unique wisdom that comes with each.

From our house to yours, we wish you a blessed Happy Imbolc!
