Halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox, marking the time when the first stirrings of spring are felt, this festival honouring the Celtic goddess Brigid was historically observed throughout Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man. It’s a wonderful time for celebrating poetry, writers, and the warmth of the hearth. For Christians, especially in Ireland, it is the feast day of Saint Brigid.
