Candlemas

A Christian festival on Febuary 2nd. The Feast of the Purification of Our Lady and the Presentation of Christ in the Temple is celebrated on this day. It coincides with the pre-christian Festival of Lights when a torchlight procession was made through the streets. The torches are replaced with church candles which are blessed in the name of St Brigit and often still carried in procession. See Imbolc.
