Brigit – Imbolc – Candlemas

To get us started, we read Brigid’s Cloak which is a close rendition of the play the children performed last year in their study of Saints. 

Of course, we could not go a year without reading a family favorite story of the Goddess Brigit from Circle Round.   The Well and the Flame is a great story that weaves in caring for people and caring for the earth. 

We have rolled lots of candles at our house, but this year was our first go at home candle dipping.  We invited a sweet friend to join and had a marvelous time!

The candles turned out great and made a good addition to our ‘sun’ cakes on Imbolc morning!  Even though our GA groundhog predicted 6 more weeks of winter, we see the sun growing stronger!
