Imbolc 2009


Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored" on Imbolc weekend 2009! We are offering a great opportunity on a wonderful bored Goddess. Get Her now or get Her later, but by all means get Her!

That Goddess is Brighid, Goddess of creativity, home and hearth, and the fabulous She who laid her silver mantle across the Earth and made it hospitable for humans.

Perhaps because She loves creativity (and warm homes), Brighid never allowed Herself to be hustled into obscurity by more rapacious deities. She strolled into Christianity as St. Brigid, for the sole purpose of staying in our minds until we re-discovered her divinity.

Although we at "The Gods Are Bored" respect all aspects of the divine, Brighid is our Goddess of choice. Over the next week we'll try to make this site worthy of Her.

And now you're thinking, "Anne, you can't be serious long enough to make anything worthy of the Goddess."

To which I reply: "What makes you think the Goddess always wants to be serious, for the love of fruit flies?"

Light a fire. Read a book. Write a book. Hug your loved ones. Let that pesky silverfish run under the floorboard. Honor the Goddess Brighid in all that you do!

Our operators are standing by to take your call.

Silverfish are sacred to Brighid?

Oh man, I'm screwed.

Hi Annie, been a bit warm over on this side of the planet. Any chance of invoking the Ice Queen?

Wait a few months, Davo, and call upon her again.

Thanks for the great start in making the site worthy of the Goddess Brighid. My creativity is laid at her feet as a token as honor to her.

The Goddess Freya said Bridget is a wimp.Since she's the Goddess of Love and War, she should know.
