February Eve, start of the festival of Imbolc or Brigantia. Also a day sacred to the Valkyries and the Norns.

In the Shetland Islands, a centuries-old fire festival known as Up-Helly-Aa is held each year on the last Tuesday of January. The festival, which marks the end of the traditional Yuletide and pays tribute to the old Gods and Goddesses of the ancient Viking religion, climaxes with the torching of a replica of a Viking ship. The day ends with a traditional prayer to drive away evil entities from village homes.

May your summers and winters be short, springs be mild and autumn reaping plentiful.
