santahat Don't Forget Candlemas

Tomorrow Feb. 2 is Candlemas. It marks the end of the 40 day Christmas cycle and celebrates the day Mary and Joseph brought the child to the temple and gave him the name "Jesus" as the angel had directed them. So light a candle and celebrate Christ as the "Light of the Nations".

wish I had seen this sooner, this is something I did not know.
That is another thing I like about this site, learning traditions and celebrations of others. Thanks
