February -- A Month Filled With Holidays
What is Candlemas? “The Presentation of the Lord in the Temple”. Candlemas is a Christian holiday occuring annually on February 2 commemorating the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple when he was a baby. It occurs 40 days (inclusively) after Christmas Day. In some churches it is celebrated on a nearby Sunday. The term "Candlemas" (meaning Candle Mass) refers to the practice of the blessing of candles by the priest during a church service ("mass") for use during the year in church and in the homes of the faithful. Candlemas commemorates the ritual purification of Mary, 40 days after the birth of her son Jesus.
