IMBOLC

To our ancestors Imbolc was  the time that they looked forward to the end of snow and the slow return of light as the days begin to lengthen. Food was getting scarce and the food that they had was beginning to spoil. So now was an opportune time to have a feast to eat what could be saved before it spoiled further.

Today we have grocery stores filled with an abundance of food, and the concept of starving is foreign to many of us. So how do we explain this return of light to our children, especially the younger ones?

If you live where there is snow then it is easy to point out that the snow will be ending very soon. Yes I know that in some places that snow may continue to fall in large amounts all the way into April and May but for the most part we should see the snow begin to lessen.  You can also point out how this is the time that we begin to help the earth to wake up.

But none of this will help you to celebrate this February Sabbat with your kids, will it? There are many things that you can do from small crafts, to traditions you can start and even decorating you can do. So continue on for those different sections.

Snowdrops

Daisies

If you lay it down and let it act as a centerpiece then you could put a candle in the center

If you choose to you can also set a Corn Dolly in among the flowers. Letting the wreath act as the Bride's Bed

Corn Dollies

For this project you are going to need dry corn husks. These should be available for purchase in your local grocer. For a simple one you are going to need five to six of these. You will also need string or raffia to make the necessary ties.

To start you need to soak them in room temperature water for about an hour. Just long enough for them to become supple.

After this you will need to lay four of them in a stack. With the flat ends all on side. About ¾ from the flat end you need to tie a string around them and cinch it tight. Then you are going to pull the other ends up and over, effectively turning the whole thing inside-out". Then tie again to form the head.

Then take a single husk and roll it up into a small tube. This
