To encourage the coming Light one should light all the candles in the house for Candlemas.

In traditions that celebrate Candlemas, the Christmas season is not officially over until Candlemas on February 2nd.  Festivals and celebrations had a much longer season when the winters were longer and colder and harder.  This midway point of winter was truly something to celebrate.

Hey kids, step outside: Are we in for a longer winter or an early spring?  How does your prediction compare to our trusty Groundhog?
