Ceremony at Imbolc

Imbolc is a festival of the ‘hearth and home’, and is a celebration of the lengthening days and the early signs of spring.  It is a turning point, a festival of the beginning of the great things that will come, as they move from the quiet, dark of winter into the light of day. 

Celebrated on February 1st, Imbolc is an ancient festival, recognized as one of the four great festivals in the Celtic calendar, alongside the Beltane (May 1), Lughnasadh (August 1) and Samhain (November 1).  Resting between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox, it marks the beginning of Spring.
