Lá fhéile Bríde sona daoibh! Happy St. Brighid’s Day to you all!
I had hoped to write a completely new post for this special day, but time got away from me. Maybe next year!
So in celebration of the REAL first day of spring (Think the “first day of spring” is on the vernal equinox? Think again!), here’s a link to a post I wrote for Lá Fhéile Bríde for Bitesize Irish in 2013.
It includes some background on the woman (or women?) who Christians know as a saint and Pagans know as a goddess, as well as some things you can do to celebrate her feast day.
And, thanks to the wonderful Irish singer Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin, here is a beautiful hymn to Brighid to brighten your day:
Wherever you are in this beautiful world, have a wonderful day! Bainigí sult as, agus Brat Bríde oraibh go léir! (Enjoy, and may Bríd’s cloak shelter you!)
