I know many celebrate Imbolc on the 1st, and that some look to the skies for when Imbolc is, but we at WhichDesigns celebrate it on the 2nd of February. (For those in the Southern Hemisphere that is August 1st or 2nd)
Here is what we do on Imbolc
Hang White Lights and Fake Icicles
Decorate the house with White Flowers
Clean the House
Get rid of unwanted/ unneeded things
Cleanse and Purify the house
Place a light white candle in each window of the house at sundown on Imbolc Eve and let the burn till sunrise. (We think this is dangerous so we got the fake candles and did it this way, much safer).
Tradition says that good weather on Imbolc is a bad sign. Bad weather is mark that Spring is on its way.

Marilyn Manson: they’re alright. I’ve heard their songs before. never have had a chance to meet them in person though so I can’t really give my full opinion. I’m a little indifferent. I was the first one to do the whole anti christ shtick anyway.
