I think I've finally come to terms with the fact that I've nothing to celebrate on imbolc.  Though I admire the stories of Brigid I don't work with her or any deities.  And while some celebrate the first signs of spring at this time, here in Michigan we are just beginning the season of Still Winter.  The average temperature is right at freezing, and no little flowers will appear for another month.  It's even too early to start seeds indoors because they can't safely be transferred into the ground until the end of May.

*sigh*  It's a depressing season.

The climate is very much the same here - but I have a hill obstructing the sunlight for a few weeks around the winter solstice. On the 1./2. of February finally the sun climbs over it and floods my livingroom. I have little to no relationship to Brigid or goats, and there are no flowers for at least another month. But I will be celebrating the sun getting higher and promising the Equinox and seedstarting season.

And for the last three years, there has indeed been a break in the clouds at midday Imbolc so I can actually see the sun.  Smiley
