Brigid's Well

Brigid's Well (Imbolc) – February 2nd is celebrated as Candlemas and Dia de la Candelaria, starting on the Eve of the 2nd, it is celebrated as St. Brigid’s Day, and Imbolc, and for the non-religious there is Groundhog day! Wells are particularly sacred to Brigid, a goddess of transformations, and wells and springs are lifegiving places. How do we fill our buckets from the well? And how do we fill others buckets?

YouTube videos will be made to order
