Imbolc 1.8

The use of candles in a Festival of Light never died out however and has returned to pagan practice.

Today in contemporary witchcraft, one of the main features of many traditional covens is the initiation ritual.

At Imbolc, members of traditional covens will form a procession of candlelight leading initiates into a circle, and from this circle, their new beginnings as Witches will take place.
