SHIMMER SPELL; Happy Imbolc

Arise and soar with the sun's newborn rays;
To breathe new life into dying nights and days.

Happy Imbolc!

Imbolc is a celebration of the midway point between winter and spring.  It is a time for snow and snowdrops; candles and fire glow; lambing and new life. 

In the stables it marks the near end of a long winter; stable work is hard at any time of year, but in the winter it can feel like a thankless job.  As an equestrian, for me Imbolc means that there will soon be long sunny days in which to enjoy riding through the woods, rather than hair-raising 'Horse Whisperer' type battles through the ice and snow!

I like to celebrate by hoofing around at the stables then returning home to a hot bath and lots of scented candles.
How will you celebrate today?
