Early hagiographers portray Brigid's life and ministry as touched with fire. In her Lives, Brigid is portrayed as having the power to multiply such things as butter, bacon and milk, to bestow sheep and cattle and to control the weather. According to Patrick Weston Joyce, tradition holds that nuns at her monastery kept an eternal flame burning there.[10] Leitmotifs, some of them borrowed from the apocrypha such as the story where she hangs her cloak on a sunbeam, are associated with the wonder tales of her hagiography and folklore. In liturgical iconography and statuary Saint Brigid is often depicted holding a reed cross, a crozier of the sort used by abbots, and a lamp.

Alas, Christmas is now more secular than religious for most people, and all about gifts. Candelmas was also the OFFICIALend of Christmastide. I personal think itis a shame that in order to pressure people into spending more money, Advent has been all but abolished in the modern era in favourof hectic pre-Christmas sales and events, and then when there is no more money to be made, the rest of the Christmas season is shunted to the side and forgotten. It would be more appropriate to put our Christmas decorations upon Christmas Eve, open presents on 12th night (night of 5 January), and just keep sing carols until Candlemas.

In practice, it was more often than not a time to celebrate the safe delivery and recovered health of the mother than it was to purify her once more. As a precaution by the early church, 2 February (which could be the midpoint between Yule and Lady Day in some years) was also turned into a very female-centric holiday Candlemas.On this day, tradition has it that the Virgin Mary went to be purified forty days after the birth of Christ by giving a gift at the temple and presenting her new baby.Christian mothers were to follow this example for centuries, being churched forty days after they had given birth.

There may be a scientific explanation for why the old wives tale of weather prediction on Imbolc seems to be more accurate than it should be. If there is a warm spell in winter it can causesudden stratospheric warming(SSW). The SSW can often result inanarctic outbreakbecause it screws around with thepolar vortex. When the polar vortex is compromised, it allows cold air from the arctic to stream down into Europe. This unleashed arctic air flows westward (coming from northeastSiberia), and the fact Great Britain is an island nation means thatlake effecthappens the icy arctic winds pick up a lot of moisture from the (relatively) warmer waters of the North Sea and that moisture turns into a massive snowfall once it hits the UK. In sum, the semi-heatwave occurring last Imbolc caused SSW, which brought snow and cold air in March, and the arctic air made it feel like a longer winter than normal in the UK.

20. So the King didnt hesitate to agree to her unconventional request.

Three biographies agree that her mother was Brocca, a Christian Pict slave who had been baptized by Saint Patrick. Because of the legendary quality of the earliest accounts of her life, there is debate among many secular scholars and Christians as to the authenticity of her biographies.

Christus per illum illamque virtutes multas peregit" (Between St Patrick and St Brigid, the pillars of the Irish people, there was so great a friendship of charity that they had but one heart and one mind. According to the Trias Thaumaturga Brigid spent time in Connacht and founded many churches in the Diocese of Elphin. She is said to have visited Longford, Tipperary, Limerick, and South Leinster.[10] Her friendship with Saint Patrick is noted in the following paragraph from the Book of Armagh: "inter sanctum Patricium Brigitanque Hibernesium columpnas amicitia caritatis inerat tanta, ut unum cor consiliumque haberent unum.
