Looking for an escape from “The Big Game” Sunday? Looking for something different? Well, Sunday just happens to be when the Wiccan holiday of Imbolc will be celebrated in Los Alamos.
Imbolc, Imbolg, Oimelc or Candlemas are all names for the ancient Celtic Sabbat celebrating the first fertility festival of the year. Literally translated “Oimelc” means “ewe’s milk,” and “Imbolc” translates into “in the belly” referring to the ewe’s pregnancy. This would be the time of year when the new lambs would be born.
While spring would still be quite some time away, in Celtic lands, some definite signs are signaling spring’s approach. Along with the imminent birth of lambs, the days are noticeably longer and slightly warmer.
