Brigid’s Feast – Christine Valters Paintner

January 31, 2020

“Brigid’s feast day is February 1stwhich in the Celtic calendar is also the feast of Imbolc and the very beginning of springtime….She is the first sign of life after the long dark nights of winter. She breathes into the landscape so that it begins to awaken. Snowdrops, the first flowers of spring are one of her symbols.”

What might you choose as your personal symbol of rebirth and awakening? 

  1. Happy Imbolc day to you! I like the idea of snow drops indicating Springs arrival much better than a grumpy groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil. 😀
