Candlemas Day, 2nd February each year, is an important celestial day as it is halfway between the shortest day of the year (21/22 December) and the Spring Equinox 21/22 March). Ancient folklore foretells that the worst of winter is over. In both heathen and Christian calendars, it is a day for lighting candles and celebrating the return of the light.
