Imbolc Celebration

Monday 31 January 2022

7pm-8.15pm (UK time)

Online event

Welcome to the Light!

 

Imbolc, also known as Candlemas, marks the middle of winter and holds the promise of spring. The days are suddenly getting longer. At this time of the returning of the light, our ancestors lit bonfires and candles to celebrate the rebirth of the land. We look forward to warmth and new life.

We will celebrate Imbolc by lighting candles to represent our intentions and desires for the coming year, and with offerings to Brigid, the Celtic goddess of our hearths and other fires. This celebration will support us to look inward and reflect on anything we want to leave behind as the spring approaches. It will also support us to plan how to direct our energy in the months to come.

Please bring any readings, songs, seasonal foliage and a candle. You might want a pen and some paper upon which to write.

Falling midway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, Imbolc is one of the eight Celtic festivals in the year. It happens around the beginning of February and signifies the rebirth of the land and the coming of spring.

Kitty knows that she will always be an incomer, but this is to be her sixth summers. The wet and grey days of winters have not diminished her love of Pembrokeshire, but she is always grateful for the golden light of spring and summer. Her love of the sea sustains her even through the darkest of days and she can often be found at high tide bobbing about in Fishguard harbour at high tide, often with seals in attendance. When not freezing in water she is usually at her computer. She says" Pembrokeshire.online has been an opportunity to celebrate this beautiful county and its people. Keep the stories coming. We love to hear from you."
