The members of SLPS meet under sacred roof and firm carpet to celebrate and honor the Celtic Goddess Brigid for Imbolc, Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 8pm. The altar was adorned with seasonal decorations and flowers, and special poetry place before the goddess the members wrote for the occasion.

Songs were sung of the goodness of Brigid and Imbolc. She spoke to the members, and they honored her with their words before toasting with red wine. Lugh, the Celtic sun God was honored for his return, the return of the light at Imbolc, when the sun starts it zenith in the sky in the coming seasons.

The feast afterward included mustard fried pork chops, potatoes au gratin, and stir fried zucchini.

Dancing Cranes is accessible on public transit on the 700 E S-line stop on the Sugar House Street Car Trolley. This celebration will welcome back the light of the sun and bring an end to the dark times of the year. Known as Candlemas to Catholics, this is the time of year when the Lady takes over from the Lord and is honored in the form of the Celtic Goddess Brigid (Saint Brigid) at Imbolc. Brigid is over poetry and blacksmithing, and will be visiting the attendees to give them guidance for the upcoming spring season. Join in if you can, it’s free! You can find the ritual outline in the rituals section of our website. If you’re on Facebook, RSVP on the event page on the Salt Lake Pagan Society’s Facebook page.
