Odd, traditionally, the Chinese would count this as the first day of Spring, too. Enjoy.
 
Today is Imbloc...the first day of spring in the Celtic calendar. We are halfway between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox.

All of us who care about these words will never give up until … Read More →
