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

Well, dear readers, here we are at another cross quarter, midway between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox. This has always been a good time to cast away some of those winter blahs in order to open ourselves to the spring that is buried ...

Grave minding and grave decorating traditions run hand in hand with the season of Samhain, and perhaps nowhere is this as apparent as in Central and South America during Dias de los Muertos.
