Happy Candlemas

And Happy Ground Hog Day
If Candlemas be fair and bright,
Winter has another flight.
If Candlemas brings clouds and rain,
Winter will not come again.

Well, it was cloudy threating to rain so winter must be over here.
Dia de la Candelaria - is the final major event of the Christmas season marking the forty days, more or less, after the birth of Christ when he would have been presented aat the Temple.
Families would offer gifts of tamales to neighbors, family and friends.
Happy Candlemas family and friends!

Glad winter is over for you. We have a prediction for 3-5 in. of snow over night. Saundra is supposed to get 24 in. in DC so I guess we are doing better than she is.
