Brigette, Bridetta, etc. Which name do you use of all the variations world wide? Do you do anything to celebrate her day? I am curious since I was born Feb. 1st and some books say that is her birthday. Is there anything special that is supposed to be for people born on her day? I've also heard that her day is the 2nd. Any comments or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Take care

I normally refer to her as Lady Brighid. I do celebrate Imbolc has I'm her follower (not a very good one, but I do try). Has far as I know, Imbolc is celebrated from the sunset of 31th Jan to the sunrise of 1st Feb as a festival to bring in the spring. Animals are blessed for the coming season and protection and healing rituals are performed. Personally, I light candles since I live in the city :)

Excellent response, my new friend. So I missed her day by being born at 2PM on the first. Darn and I thought I was a Lady Brighid child. I was hoping it was 2PM to 2PM either direction (day before or day after), then I'd be safe. I have a guy friend who is a follower of the Female Buddha. Kind of neat these males that worship fems. Oh I think it's the thought that counts. I'm into Shamanism, but I'm not very good at that. But I do try. We're human.In 5 years, I retire (the 1st time), hope to do more with my beliefs then. Lighting candles sounds like a good idea. I think I saw an Imbolc topic on your profile page. I'll have to check it out. I like reading more about things I know little about. Take care and thanks.

Well, you're safe, the festival is suppose to be on the 1st, but most of the rituals are done on the eve :D In County Kildare, Ireland, the Imbolc events are held for a full week. I'm hoping that someday I will be able to go there when it's happening! I'm not versed in shamanic ways, but I do understand that it is not an easy tradition to follow. All the best!

That does sound really cool! I hope you get to go someday. Smile Actually, if a person is called to Shamanism, I don't think hard is the word, more like the rest of the world is out of sinc with you. At least that's my experience, everybody is different. The cool thing is that you are called to your thing and I'm called to mine. The healing rituals sound interesting and I love animals, I think they bless us. Take care
