ah Sunday. Time for another session of Poppy’s Pagan Planning.
I had mentioned in my last Poppy’s Pagan Planning post that I thought I would make Quiche and salad. I like Quiche not just because of the egg and dairy seem very in tune with Imbolc, but also the roundness of it reminds me of the wheel of the year. So other than salad other round things like rolls or a round Irish Soda bread
And of course I did say salad. how about I a nice spinach salad with poppy seed dressing?
of course it is traditional to make a Brigid’s Cross as it is Her day.
You may also want to work on some poetry to be read at your circle or Altar. Perhaps even a chant to say over you cross as yo make it. This is also a good time to have a bardic circle (or party) Invite folks over to sing a song or recite a poem or story. You can do this with kids too and have them make up little songs. Even do this around the dinner table. lots of fun and if you don’t want to make up a new song or poem you can learn and recite a traditional story.
Another activity to do with kids or the young at heart.
and you can find the full instructions and list of what you need here.
For those of you with out a fireplace but wanting a hearth I love this
and these are beautiful to me. If I lived where there was snow (which clearly I don’t) I would put the twigs in the vases and then put the snow in around and on top of them and then a floating candle on the top. Watch the snow melt as the candle burns.
of course I don’t live where it snows so I will be making something like this
