Strange Days for Groundhogs in Woodstock

01 February 2014

Strange days for groundhogs indeed. Happy Imbolc, Candlemas, Groundhog Day, and Superbowl Sunday! And welcome Brigid, welcome Brigid, welcome Brigid on her feast day today as well. Today is the day you're supposed to weave a fresh Brigid's Cross out of rushes to protect your home during the year. I think it says everything that needs to be said about my devotion to traditional arts that I ordered mine from Amazon this morning.

PS. And don't forget to get your throat blessed with crossed candles by a priest on St. Blaise's Day on Monday - especially if you found yourself shouting - in triumph or despair - on Sunday night.
