Imbolc, also known as Saint Brigid’s Day, is a pagan holiday that commemorates the arrival of spring and is observed from February 1 to 2.

For the ancient Celts, Imbolc was a significant cross quarter day. It was a time of renewal and purification, as well as anticipation of the coming summer months. With women taking center stage, birth, fertility, creativity, and fire were all vital factors.

Imbolc is a cross quarter day, or the midpoint between seasonal shifts, in the celebrations of the seasons, often known as “the Wheel of the Year.” Imbolc occurs between the Winter Solstice (December 21st) and the Spring Equinox (March 20th) (Ostara, March 21st).
