Wishing Everyone a Joyful Imbolc

Here in the Northern Hemisphere we are celebrating Imbolc.

Imbolc celebrates the Goddess in her incarnation as the Bride of the returning Sun God. For the celebration of Imbolc, many candles are lit to symbolise the return of light and heat represented by the Sun God. Grain dollies made from the sheaves of the last harvest represent the Bride. The Goddess and God await the return of Spring and their sacred marriage at Beltaine. Often called Midwinter, as Imbolc is half-way between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.

  1. Wishing you blessings for you and your kin. We turned our wheel yesterday and toasted the beautiful warm sun that came out. Colder weather coming tomorrow but we appreciated the warmth yesterday. Lovely images!

  2. Dont know if intentional, but the thumbnail of the picture with the candles played a cool trick when I moused over it…the lights went out. But the same thing did not happen in the blog 😦 Wish you happy climes and springtime ahead.
