Have any other #witchesoflitsy heard this “EE-melk” pronunciation for Imbolc? 🤔 It‘s a first for me—I‘ve always said “ihm-bolk” and that‘s how I‘ve heard it in person. But I know Samhain isn‘t pronounced at all the way you‘d expect in English from the spelling.

I‘m already side-eyeing this author a bit for her judgmental comments on group rituals…

MoonWitch94 Ummmmmm no 🤣😂 That is the first time so have ever heard that. I mean, it‘s possible 🤷🏻‍♀️ but I think not. What tradition does the author follow? 2w
Suet624 First I've heard that pronunciation. 2w
Clare-Dragonfly @MoonWitch94 It says she is an initiated Druid. 2w

MoonWitch94 @Clare-Dragonfly Perhaps it‘s a Druid pronunciation? But that‘s the first I have seen that. 2w
BookwormAHN That's the first I've seen it like that 😺 2w
MoonWitch94 Maybe it‘s the Gaelic pronunciation? 2w
shanaqui People usually pronounce it “wrong“ (as in more or less how it's written), but AFAIK the “b“ is meant to be silent. Not sure about the “ee“ or the “melk“ part; I usually hear it pronounced almost as written but with just the B silent, so... “im'olc“. 2w
Clare-Dragonfly @shanaqui Oh, interesting! It‘s not a Welsh word, is it? 2w
shanaqui @Clare-Dragonfly It's Gaelic! 2w
Clare-Dragonfly @shanaqui That makes sense! I wonder if I can find anyone who speaks Gaelic/understands how Gaelic spelling relates to pronunciation to explain things… 2w
TalesandTexts It‘s always been “imh” for me. But yes the pronunciation for samhain is soooo different, that we do need to wonder if we‘ve got imbolc wrong too. (edited) 2w
Erinsuereads I never thought about the b being silent. But yes that sounds right from the Gaelic I know! 2w
Clare-Dragonfly Maybe I‘ll just call it Brigid‘s Day and avoid the whole confusion 😆 1w

Shameless plug for my friend‘s business - she makes AMAZING teas (Rainy Day is my favorite), plus she has herbs and sages. Today only she‘s got a great sale going on. You should try it! www.thesouthernkitchenwitchery.com

I picked this book up initially because I wanted to learn more about La Flaca; growing up, I remember my grandmother petitioning her at an altar in her home. Reading this book felt very nostalgic to me. I am not a devote of Santa Muerte, but I am all about learning more about her. Also been thinking about my roots and how I choose to practice.

#3 in “The Witches of Hollow Cove” series. I loved this installation of the series. Each time you‘re immediately engrossed in Tessa‘s world & the witches and paranormal s of Hollow Cove. I can‘t believe I‘m the only person to review this on Litsy! 5/5 🌟 #witchesoflitsy

Fantastic sequel to “Shadow Witch”. 4/5 🌟Richardson doesn‘t skip a beat, as we jump back into the messy lives of the paranormals who call Hollow Cove home. 🧙‍♀️ #witchesoflitsy

4.5/5 stars 🌟 rom-com meets all the witchiness. 🧙‍♀️ This one had some plot twist I definitely didn‘t see coming. It‘s also set up perfectly for a sequel - which I‘d be first in line for. #witchesoflitsy 💚

Lammas Blessings to all! August 1st is the first of three #HarvestFestivals. As the Wheel turns again, may we all begin the cultivate the things we planted: physically or spiritually. My only celebrating today will be to harvest some herbs from my garden to begin the drying process. My Grandmother has taken a turn, and she‘s not doing well. So I‘ll be spending time with her. #WitchesofLitsy how are you celebrating? 🍺🍯🥖🍅🫐🌻🌼 #Lammas

Dragon Sorry to hear your grandma is unwell - glad you can spend time with her. It‘s August long weekend here so I have today off and I‘m celebrating by reading my library ebook 6mo
sprainedbrain So sorry to hear that about your grandma ❤️ My celebration consisted of harvesting some corn, tomatoes and cucumbers, and then eating a bit too much. 😉 6mo
CBee Hi Danielle - just dropping in to say that you are in my thoughts. Sending so much love during a very difficult time ♥️ @MoonWitch94 6mo

My #lammassmallswap is out for Monday delivery! I went a little tape-heavy, but we made it work 💪

I love the idea of these super small swaps for the festivals between the Equinox and Solstice celebrations! It gives everyone an opportunity to participate in the festivities all year round 😊 @sprainedbrain and @Chrissyreadit #witchesoflitsy
