February 1 is the Feast of Saint Brigid, one of Ireland’s patron saints. It is also Imbolc, the Celtic celebration for the beginning of spring. It’s a little early to begin celebrating the arrival of spring but the Celts were always in the mood to party. If you’re interested in learning more go here…Celebrate
