February 2nd Candlemas Day
Today is the day a large number of Christian based faith groups take their candles to church to be blessed. Since Jesus was the “Light of the World” this symbolism is blessing those things that light our way daily through life (perhaps as we modernize we should take light bulbs). There was a time when candles were the main source of light in the home and blessing them made sense, to protect us from burning down our homes! This is also traditionally the day we are to finally take down our Christmas Decorations.
How to celebrate – Take your candles to get blessed. Make sure your Christmas decorations are down by the end of the day. Look for blessing in all your life.
