Brigid's festival is the first of February, otherwise known as Imbolc, when ritual fires of purification were lit. She takes over from the goddess of winter and is seen as the maiden aspect of the triple goddess by some researchers. In Irish mythology she is the daughter of the Dagda, the father god, and ruler of the Tuatha de Dannan

Brigit was one of the most widely worshiped goddesses in the Celtic Britain, and traditionally she is seen as the goddess of forge & smithcraft , creativity, healing, wisdom, fertility, and childbirth.

She Is still worshiped Today as St Brigid
