In a season dark and cold, let the Imbolg candles´ glow
spark our hopes and warm the hearth,
and welcome light´s return to Earth

Beyond the darkness of winter, there is an oasis of light and warmth on the journey from solstice to spring. Known as Candlemas, Imbolg, Brigantia, or Lupercus, it is a hope-filled celebration held in early February to welcome the returning light and the promise of spring. Candlemas sheds light on the origins, lore, and customs of this ancient holy day with:

  • Myths and stories: Brigit the Goddess, Brigid the Saint, and her meaning today
  • Candlemas magick and divination: flame scrying, hearthside divination, candle magick, and protection magick
  • Late winter goodies and feasts: Brede's Braid Bread, Guiness Stew, Bubble and Squeak, Mulled Cider or Wine
  • February festivals and traditions: rituals for purification, blessings, and renewal, from the Irish, British, Scots, Welsh, Norwegian, Greek, Roman, and Chinese cultures
  • Seasonal crafts and games: Brigid's crosses or sun wheels, Begging for Biddy, and a Brigit corn dolly
