Imbolc - The Festival Where We Say, "Enough Winter Already!"

Imbolc has been co-opted by everyone from the Catholics with the Feast of St. Brigid, to Pennsylvania with Groundhog Day.

Imbolc falls half-way between the Winter Solstice and the Vernal Equinox. It is a time to start thinking about the fact that winter will end. Maybe plan for a garden and planting. Definitely get together with folks to say how sick you are of long nights, cold winds and snow - though we haven't had it too bad on that front so far.
