La Fheile Bhride

Happy St. Brigid's Day to everyone, we are again celebrating the feast of Imbolc, a very special day in the Irish calender, and indeed in County Kildare where St. Brigid lived. There are many events planned to commemorate and celebrate over the next few days, click here and see what Feile Bride 2011 have planned.

Imbolc means,“in the belly” (of the Mother), this was the time to celebrate the stirrings of spring, the sprouting of seeds in the womb of Mother Earth. this day belonged to Brigit, the Goddess of Fire, and patroness of smith-craft, poetry and healing (especially midwifery). There are several ways of spelling Brigit, (Bridget, Bridgit, Bríd or Bride) who is associated with Holy Wells, so, as well as lighting candles and bonfires, there is a tradition of trying strips of cloth on bushes beside the wells.

Big hugs,
