Imbolc (Yule Father and Mother at Home, in Spring)

Everyone knows Father and Mother Yule, at Yuletide, and the many names by which they're known, such as Santa and Mrs. Claus, Sinterklaas, and Befana, et cetera. 

But, this is only their Yuletide, or Winter, phase.

Being magical, at Imbolc*, the Spring Festival, their youth and magic renews with the season.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This was inspired by Santa's home - contest, hosted by  Malleni-Stock

Thanks to Malleni-Stock, and to all the stock providers.

And, to all the coal-biters, those myth makers who passed down all these stories and legends.

 *From Wikipedia: Imbolc, or Imbolg (pronounced i-molg) is a Gaelic festival marking the beginning of spring. Held on February 1st , between the winter solstice and the spring equinox
