As the end of October nears , we can feel the Ice Dragon's breath upon the lands of our beloved AEthelmearc. With each rush of it mighty wings we can feel the great winds. Soon our lands will be covered with the ice and snow that The Ice Dragon brings with it. Aye, winter can be beautiful, but the hope of Spring is always on the edge of our thoughts. After a winter of indoor events, fighting and fencing indoors, and all that comes with those long winter months we will all be looking forword to Spring and the passing of the Ice Dragon from our lands.

Shire Lagerdamm invites you to Newbie Collegium Imbolc January 10, 2009 Come and celebrate with us
Peace Lutheran Church
As our ewes prepare for birth and soft rains replace the snows, the Shire of Lagerdamm invites you to join them for a celebration of the coming of spring. Imbolc is one of the four principal festivals of the Irish calendar, celebrated among Gaelic peoples and some other Celtic culture. The holiday is a festival of the hearth and home, and a celebration of the lengthening days and the early signs of spring. While it is still winter, changes are already taking place and spring will be here soon. It is an awakening of the earth and all of its creatures. Imbolc is a festival of lights. Candles are lit at dusk on Imbolc eve and placed in every window of the house. This is symbolic of lighting the way in to the future and the coming season of spring and renewal.
