Welcome Imbolc with song

The songs from The Children’s Forest are now available online, great for those of us with fledgling music-reading skills.

Author Anna Richardson sings the Song of the Snowdrop to The Hazel Tree Song.

The Celtic festival of Imbolc, St Brigit’s day is on 1 February, halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox and has been sacred in Celtic lands since Neolithic times. While we are all mostly sheltering at home Imbolc offers us signs of the changing seasons and life.

Imbolc is the time when we become aware of that which is invisible. Animals in the forest are revealed by their footprints and snowdrops emerge from under the ground with a promise of spring to come.
You may be able to see snowdrops on your daily walk? Try making some snowdrop folk or see if you can spot some footprints left in the mud or snow.
