It is now Two Weeks to Imbolc so I am wondering what everyone has Planned for Imbolc.
 
 
It falls on a Sunday so I will be spending the Evening at the Legion Watching the Door and then doing a bit of Dancing.
 
 
But my Main Celebration will be on the 5th when I get a few days Insurance for Canadamobile to get it in for a New Fuel Pump and then driving off on the 6th to visit my Buddhist Temple Community Garden to get in some Gardening and Maintenance on my Allotment & their Jerusalem Artichoke Patch.
 
 
And then on Saturday the 7th, I will go off to Hemlock Valley to do an Imbolc Fire at my Favorite Spot.

I was going through Witchvox.com in order to see if there are any local Imbolc Gatherings and I came upon this Article that was
Written by a Pagan in Conneticut.
 
 
You can check it out by Clicking On:
 
 
Towards the end of the Article, it goes into how the Pagan Traditions were kept Alive and Celebrated in Scotland.

It is now Two Weeks to Imbolc and what Celebrations have You All Planned for this Year?


I usually Celebrate by Commemorating the Birthday of TwoWhiteSocks.


I have made an appointment with the Vet for her on her Birthday.


Then it is a Fresh Bag of Beef Tender Vittles.

Finished my Imbolc Celebrations last Weekend when I went to a Full Moon Ata Sil Day at the Vihara Temple. Friday, I stopped by and dug the Garden and put in about 60 to 70 Corn Seeds into my Allotment and then went to their Saturday Ata Sil Day Meditative Retreat on the Saturday.
 

Here is a Picture of the Garden Bed that I put the Corn Seeds into:
 

 

And I took a Picture of another Garden Bed where someones Garlic Patch is starting to Grown:
 


It was raining a bit too much during the Saturday Ata Sil, so I did not get to do anymore Digging on the Gardens. But I did come into a Book from their Library called 'A Treasury of the Buddha's Teachings' which is similarly named as my Free Download E-Book on Druidic Triads. So I grabbed it and it turns out to have been written by a Buddhist Monk who calls himself 'Ajahn Tirad Hammo' who I had met a couple of times at his Talks he held at BCIT. I liked him and look forward to Reading his Book and Writing a Review about it.
 

I was hoping to get off to doing a Ceremonial Burning at Chehalis Campsite near Weaver Creek, but I could not get the Time or afford the Gas.
 

So for this years Imbolc, I got to do some Digging in the Vihara Gardens and doing an Ata Sil Meditative Retreat.
