Does The Cailleach Awake At Imbolc?
Well it was a sunny day after the Imbolc moment this morning ... by tradition that’s more winter ... though our current long range forecast does not think so. ...
There's a similar story with bears in our Keash area as 100s of years ago bears are said to have hibernated in the caves here. Same story, If Imbolc day was nice, the bears would hant for some more food to fatten up then go back to sleep as winter was about to lengthen. If the weather was rough the bears would keep sleeping and soon winter will be gone.
One of the stories of the remains of ancient fire embers in the caves is to wake up the Cailleach to remind winter is over, and she does not need to go out and collect firewood.
