Imbolc (Feb 2) is a festival of purification and a celebration of the first signs of spring.:flower: It is the time when the milk begins to engorge the udders of the livestock in preparation for the first births of spring. :woohoo: It is an important date in the beginning of the agricultural year. Preparations for the spring growing season will start. The cellar and the hay stores are also checked to make sure that only half had been consumed.

The wheel turns again.;)

For those of us who live close to the earth for our very survival, those events are noticed and their importance recognized...whether for religious reasons or not!

Thanks, andi, for telling us about that. mn-homesteader too, for what you added.
