The Feast of St. Brigid

Today is the feast day of St. Brigid, who may or may not actually be a pagan goddess. This day was known in pre-Christian times as Imbolc, a festival to mark the very beginning of Spring. It was sacred to the goddess Brigid, who may or may not have been transformed into the saint by early Christianity. 

Since I missed out on Burns Night this year, I decided to combine the feasts into a general Celtic holiday. 

So that’s a North American Haggis at the top left. Also served was venison pie, Scottish shortbread, Cranachan, and of course Scotch. This bottle was a gift from a friend. The beer is an Old Chub Scottish Strong Ale, from a local brewery here in the mountains.
