Religious Observances

Imbolc/Candlemas is the halfway point between Yule and Eostara Solstice. Wiccans observing Brigid, or Imbolc, clean and organize their living environments, as well as their minds and hearts, in preparation for the upcoming season of growth (spring). It’s a time to shake off the doldrums of winter and light the fires of creativity and inspiration. Some employees may request scheduling accommodations in order to observe.
