Summary
Imbolc is a Celtic festival celebrating the start of Spring

Imbolc is a Celtic pagan religious holiday celebrated from February 1st  – 2nd each year. Imbolc originated as a festival in honor of the pagan goddess Brigid that marked the halfway point between the winter solstice and the spring equinox.

Imbolc is also known as St. Brigid’s Day.

Brigid encompasses the stories of two women, Brigid the saint who is considered a patron saint of Ireland and the goddess Brigid a powerful woman and the patroness of healing, arts, fertility, poetry/music, prophecy and agriculture.

Her feast day on the 1st February marks the first day of Spring in the northern hemisphere and it is the season when we celebrate hope and new life on earth
