Happy New Year, Candlemas, Groundhog's Day, and Imbolc!

I know it is decidedly still winter back East, but out here we are getting Spring already. However, we still have some midwinter holidays to celebrate ...

So Happy Groundhog's Day to you. Here's to hoping it doesn't see its shadow (although I bet it will).

Happy Candlemas.

Happy Imbolc. May the goddess awake and spring return.

Happy Chinese New Year, Happy Oshogatsu.

We attended a local Oshogatsu celebration at our community center, and were amazed at the variety of Japanese food, arts and crafts, music, and other cultural displays. However you celebrate this time of year, may it be a happy time. Even if you are snowed in up to your rooftops.

  1. We don't have snow quite up to the rooftops, but there are definitely no signs of spring yet!

    The Japanese celebration sounds really fun! My kids got to try sumie painting last summer and they loved it.
