The Celtic festival, Imbolc, was celebrated on the 1st of February. It was probably associated with the goddess Brigit, a goddess of fertility, learning and healing. after the arrival of Christianity, the Celtic goddess appears to have become a Christian saint in Ireland and her festival continues to be celebrated on the 1st of February.
