A friend of mine has been telling me about Candlemass Day. It was on February 2nd and is signals the end of Christmas. There is a lot of myth and folklore surrounding Candlemass, particularly regarding the weather.
"If Candlemass Day be bright and fair,
The half of winter is to come and more."
Its was a beautiful day here on Thursday, very cold but sunny with a bright blue sky and no wind. Then today the snow has come, swirling and drifting as it is driven by the wind. Is this the curse of Candlemass???
