Early Childhood Candlemas Celebration
February 1, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Come join us for a morning of play, crafting, and pancakes!
Candlemas marks the end of the “season of light”, which began with Jack O’ Lanterns, continued with the Lantern Walk, Spiral Walk, Christmas, Hanukkah and Yuletide. In some traditions, Candlemas was a day to have one’s candles blessed for use in the coming year. It was also believed to be a good day for weather forecasting as it falls halfway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. This belief has carried into folklore tradition in England, Scotland, Mexico, and in the United States as Groundhog Day.
