Candlemas - Earthen Candle Tutorial: The earth candle symbolically helps warm the earth for the spring bulbs (the root children!) and brings to mind the life under the surface. What a lovely Candlemas tradition!
Imbolc: "I send the kids out to fill a pan with rich, dark soil and we sit around the table writing out our dreams for the coming year on little scraps of paper, which we roll up in tight little balls to represent seeds." Many great ideas here.
Imbolc is a Celtic fire festival celebrated on or around the February each year, and is one of the eight Sabbats marked by witches, druids and other pagans. As winter begins to draw to a close, Imbolc (pronounced "imm-aulk") heralds the promise.
Imbolc: Milk, Candle, Cross, and Cradle. Little Ms. Biddy and her wand in bed, and a cross to keep us safe from harm. Some bread and milk to keep her fed, and smoke and flame to keep her warm.
