Holy day for Wiccans and Druids generally celebrated on February 1st or its eve. One of the eight Sabbats. It is also called Bride, Imblog, Imbolic or Candlemas though this latter designation is frowned upon by neopagans it being the Christian term for the same day.

Bridget is the Irish Goddess of the forge and poetry. The first spark of springtime is thought to be ignited at this time of the year, and, thus, neopagans light candles to ritually invoke the return of spring.
