Imbolc is usually celebrated on February 1 or 2. The Irish called it Oimelc, which means "ewe's milk" because this was the time of year baby lambs were born and their mothers began to give milk. This is a good time for weather magic and divination. In fact weather divination is still alive with the tradition of Groundhog Day. The Goddess Brigid was so important to the people of Ireland, that the Christians turn her into a Saint. This way the people could still worship her at her sacred wells and fires.
