Brighid's Day

This occurs on the 1st February and represents the beginning of Celtic Spring (imbolc).


Brighid is a busy deity with responsibility for:

"babies; blacksmiths; boatmen; cattle farmers; children whose parents are not married; children whose mothers are mistreated by the children's fathers; Clan Douglas; dairymaids; dairy workers; fugitives; infants; Ireland; Leinster, mariners; midwives; milk maids; nuns; poets; poor; poultry farmers; poultry raisers; printing presses; sailors; scholars; travellers; watermen."

And I would imagine in this day and age also computers. And poetandgeek.com.
