santahat Forget Groundhog Day--It's Candlemas

As cute as the little critter is tomorrow, Feb. 2 originally was was Candlemas. This is the feast of the Christ child's presentation in the temple. It also has older significance being half way between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. Traditional celebrating involves lighting lots of candles. It is also one of the traditional times for removing all the Christmas decorations and the time to reflect on your hopes for the new year. Think of what is really important for you to accomplish and discuss your plans to get it done.
