Lots to Celebrate!

Well, it’s a festive time of year, indeed. Just this weekend, we’ve got lots to celebrate, so take your pick, and please add more if I’ve missed any:

Happy Chinese New Year (Year of the Horse)! (Asian New Year)

Happy Candlemas! (Christian)

Happy Groundhog Day! (American)

Happy Imbolc! (Pagan/Wiccan Cross Quarter Day)

Happy St. Brigid’s Day! (Christian grown out of Pagan tradition)

I couldn’t resist posting the ever lovely and informative Laura Daligan (lots of Laura’s lately!) talking about Imbolc, St. Brigid, Bride, Candlemas and the “festival of new beginnings.” She also doesn’t mention Groundhog Day, but her story about the Cailleach sounds awfully familiar.

Happy, Happy!
