HAPPY IMBOLC! FIRST DAY OF SPRING/ ST BRIGID’S DAY
It’s SPRING in Ireland!!!!!!
I love the Irish saints, especially the female ones. They all seem to derive from pagan gods and goddesses. February 1st is St Brigid’s Day (or maybe Sunday is……..it’s Ireland, you know). I’m reposting 3 articles from Irish Central.com that I really enjoyed reading and many thanks to the authors of them. The photo here is my St Brigid’s Cross that hangs on my kitchen wall. It was made by a wonderful artist named Ciaran in Connemara. It is said to protect against kitchen fires and ensure harmony in the home. Working very well so far!!!!
And February 3 is Saint Caoilfhinne’s Day ….very special to me as it is my daughter’s (Keelin) “saint’s day” and my Irish granny’s, Winifred Spellman Clark, birthday (RIP).
