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.

What better way to celebrate Newbie then in the traditions of Imbolc, which center around new beginnings and clearing out the old in anticipation of the new. Now is the time to finish old habits and make a fresh start, and realize the world is full of new opportunities. It is a time of optimism and for making new plans for the sunny days ahead. Plant the seeds of your plans now and tend them so they mature into your hopes and dreams.

Come learn a new craft or new idea, meet new friends or renew old friendships. Join us for this one day event with exciting classes, thrilling tournaments, awesome A&S projects, buying new merchandise and end the day with a delicious feast prepared by Lady Beatrix de Montecassino.
