IMbolc.. the ‘cross quarter’ holiday

Imbolc (Feb 1-2) is the first of the “Cross-Quarter” Holidays on our journey through the year.  The cross-quarters fall halfway between the Solstices and Equinoxes.  Just as the quarter holidays mark the peaks relating to the amount of day and night, the cross-quarters mark the extremes of temperature.  Imbolc (Groundhog’s Day) marks the halfway point through the season of winter
