Hi Sparrow,

I don't think you necessarily have to have a relationship with Brighid to celebrate Imbolc. Personally I have never worked with her, but I love this time of year because it signifies for me the returning of the light and the end of winter drawing close. I like to fill my home with flowers, light candles and look forward to the coming spring. I see it as a time to start putting into action any plans you have made for the coming months, as we are now in the active phase of the year again.

Incidentally, I have never celebrated Samhain as my new year, and I suppose that if there was a festival I considered as a kind of new year, it would probably Imbolc. It just never felt right to celebrate a new beginning at the start of winter...but that's just my personal feeling.

By the way, you mentioned that your spirituality is generally not centred around gods/goddesses, but if you do feel like honouring a deity, why not choose another maiden goddess, if there is one you feel a closer connection with? Or just honouring the Maiden aspect of the triple goddess, as this is the time she comes into being again.

Hope you have a wonderful Imbolc, however you decide to celebrate.

Love and Blessings
