Imbolc is one of my favorite pagan holidays. The air is always tingling with springtime energy, no matter how cold it is. This year was wonderful because for a change, Punxsutawney Phil did *not* see his shadow and predicted an early Spring. The weather was also quite nice, getting up over 40°F with the sun breaking through quite a bit.

I didn't do much of a ritual though. I was feeling depressed, and only cleared my altar off a bit. Jacqueline made lemon poppy seed muffins, lemon to symbolize the sun, the seeds representing both the seeds waiting to burst forth and the seeds of opportunity waiting for us all in life; and she made lamb stew, a traditional Imbolc food.
