Brigid is associated with fire, creativity, poetry and healing. In Ireland people still visit Brigid's wells and springs at First Light, in search of healing.
Even when the Church converted the festival of Brigid into Candlemas, the lighting of candles continued, for who doesn't love to kindle brightness?
Come Bride! Come Bride!
We're ready for thy blessing now
Ready for thy blessing now.
[Old invocation. Bride was another word for Brigid]
