Candlemas

February 01, 2014
Blatha An Oir

Tacoma-Pierce County, WA

Autocrat: Francis of Norton

The Barony of Blatha An Oir invites you to take refuge from
the cold dark days at Winter’s End as we fill the feast hall with candle light
and good cheer. This ancient holiday is also known as Brigit’s Day, and so we
honor the Irish goddess and patron saint of smith craft, healing, and poetic
inspiration with a Games Tournament, Scribal Contest and Charter Painting, an
SCA Swap Meet, Baronial Court, a Potluck Feast, and a Bardic. This year’s theme
is “Green” in anticipation of spring.
