Candlemass Day ~ February 2nd

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???
