Just one day late, but I painted this inspired by the Sabbat Imbolc…

Imbolc (also know as Candlemas or Festival of Lights) is celebrated on February 2nd. It is a day that marks the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Depending on where you live, you may even find green shoots from snowdrops or crocus in your garden. It is a time for celebrating new life and growth. Cast off the cold, dreary winter and embrace the lengthening days.

    When I lived ion Montreal.. I loved to see the snowdrops and crocuses appear through the last remnants of snow!
    What culture celebrates Imbolc????

  • Imbolc was celebrated many years ago by the Celtics. But there are many people (neo-pagans, witches, wiccans, and others) who continue the traditions :)
