Today we are celebrating the Celtic festival of Imbolc.
1st February is known as the first day of spring, with Imbolc, also known as St Brigit’s Day, marking the loosening of winter’s grip. The land’s fertility reawakens & preparations for spring sowing begin.
Brigit, the bright maiden of spring, brings light and the possibility of new growth.
