With the years, I'm starting to understand the true essence of Imbolc. We are far from having daffodil sprouting around; the land is still well covered by feets of snow, and will remain that way until late March; then the land will remain frozen for another month. But the Wheel has turned, and time has past. Spring, like always, is coming.
We've decorated our altar with simple symbols. I tried to make an hedgehog... but I think I failed! In my attempt to simplify, I turned a catholic sierge into a Bridig's one by drawing her on a piece of construction paper. The same material was used to make the cross. I just couldn't take out the books about snow and winter yet, as we are still in the middle of it!
