In my "holidays" that we celebrate, I've included the solstices and equinoxes, even though they don't seem to have been celebrated by the Celtic peoples. I find them to be meaningful. It has been more tricky for me to really honor Imbolc, Beltaine, etc... in my head I think that they're important days worthy of celebration and attention, but when it comes down to it I don't manage to prioritize them as special days like I do with the solstices. (The exception would be Samhain.)

I sometimes feel that I should drop the non-Celtic Yule, etc... but I love it and it means something to me. (And I'm part German in heritage, so theoretically have a connection to that, anyway, right?)

I think what I'd like to do is put more *fire* in my fire days. Any thoughts? With Imbolc coming up, I'd really like to feel that it is significant, rather than just think it. I don't expect the earth to move! Just a general overall feeling of meaninful-ness.

Also, are there any indications that the Solstices and Equinoxes were possibly marked by the Irish or other Celts?
