This Imbolc recipe might appear to be late (considering it is February 3rd) but I suggest it is right on time. After all, Imbolc or Imbolg, ( an ancient Celtic holiday welcoming the first stirrings spring) was originally a “moveable feast” determined not by fixed dates on the calendar but by shifting heavenly events, specifically the midpoint between the winter solstice and spring equinox. Which this year falls on February 3rd. And according to the Coligny Calendar (used by the continental Celts before being banned by the Romans), Brigit’s celebration was not only set by the moon – it occurred twice! The full moon was Brigit’s public holiday and the new moon was her “Holy Night”. This year the new moon occurs on Feb.11th – which means you’ve got nearly a week to make Magical Blackberry Scones for Brigit’s Holy Night.
