Imbolg in Ireland

Synopsis:

A Gaelic Festival - Imbolg means “in the belly” and refers to the coming of milk. It is also the availability of lamb meat during the cold season. We celebrate this today without connection to its significance in the past because our refrigerators protect us and a multitude of shops open 24/7. Imagine no shops and it's dark, wet and cold and the only foods you have are the seeds for the next harvest and all the time you know that there are a multitude of young lambs “in the belly” and the importance of this cross-quarter day becomes real.
