Candlemas Day

Today is Candlemas day, the commemoration of the presentation of Jesus and purification of Mary in the temple. Candles are solemnly blessed on this feast.

I came across this poem.

If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Winter has another flight.
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Winter will not come again.
English poem

Interesting, considering it is our Groundhog day with woodchucks predicting the weather by looking for their shadows.
