Candlemas on 2nd February


Candlemas, halfway between the Winter Solstice in December and the Spring Equinox in March, is the time when we celebrate the lengthening days and the beginning of Spring’s new growth by taking the light back outside, having carefully guarded it within through the darkest days of winter.

At our school we have celebrated this most cheering of festivals for many years by meeting in the early morning, as the sky begins to brighten, to sing and then to make candles in the earth, followed by a communal breakfast.
