FIRE OF BRIGID
Today is St. Brigid's Day, or Imbolc in the ancient Celtic calendar. It is the first day of spring, and a time when the Celts would sweep and clean their homes thoroughly, and light new fires in their hearths. The countryside would also be ablaze with bonfires celebrating Brigid's fire, which was now warming the earth preparing it for the planting season. Brigid's Fire made everything new.
