I received a blog post today from Confessions of a Pagan soccer mom.
There was a list of Important Feb. dates for Pagans.
2 of which I have never heard of.
- 2 – Imbolc (Lammas, Southern Hemisphere)
- 7 – Full Moon
- 12 – Feralia starts
- 14 – Valentine’s Day
- 14- Last Quarter Moon
- 15 – Lupercalia
- 21 – New Moon
Apparently Feralia is like Samhain, a day of the dead. It dates back to Roman times when they “mounred” their dead. Follow the link above to read the interesting article.
Then theres Lupercalia. Apprently its another Roman festival. During the days of the festival the city would be cleanse of evil spirits and promotedhealth and fertility to the citizens. Follow the link above to read the interesting blog written about it.
I thought this was cool enough to share. I have never heard of those 2 Pagan celebrations. Has anyone else?
