Today is Candlemas, so I thought I would reblog my post from last year. Also on this day Punxsutawney Phil of Pennsylvania, today didn’t see a shadow so predicts an early spring. We shall see!
What signs of spring have you spotted?
This Friday was Candlemas – Festival of light.Candlemas has many connotations. For the Christian’s, it represents Mary’s presentation of the young Jesus at the temple of Jerusalem. To others it’s Imbolc, a Gaelic festival signalling the beginning of spring, and since 1886 the day has also been known as Groundhog Day. Whatever your beliefs, the season of spring does seem to be close at hand.
If Candlemas Day be fair and bright
Winter will have another fight.
If Candlemas Day brings cloud and rain,
Winter will not come again.
