There are a variety of Pagan holidays, many of which, other religions have borrowed from to establish their own holidays. Christmas and Easter being good examples of this meshing of customs. One Pagan holiday that is not as well known in Imbolc. This is a holiday with a variety of names, depending on culture and location. The customs associated with it, date back centuries. It falls on February 2nd, timing it between the deep darkness of the Winter Solstice and the coming of rebirth with the Spring Equinox.  Our listener and Executive Producer Roxy joins us to share the history and legends behind the holiday of Imbolc. The Moment in Oddity features the Hypogeum of Hal Salflieni and in honor of Black History Month, This Month in History features ratification of the 15th Amendment.
