Very nice!

“If Candlemas day be sunny and bright, winter will yet have another flight; if Candlemas day brings showers and rain, winter is gone and shan’t come again.” This is just one of the poems and stories associated with February 2nd festivities, and it certainly relates to the weather auguring of Groundhog Day . There’s also a Polish story about how Mother Mary lights candles on February 2nd and wanders around villages, protecting the people within from hungry wolves prowling in the snow outside. Whether you’re celebrating this as a spiritual festival or just really love flickering firelight, making candles from recycled odds and ends is a fun, easy project that can be completed in an afternoon.
