This year, we got together with friends to enjoy celebrating Candlemas. This is the midway point between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. We made crepes for lunch, and then dipped beeswax candles. It was a lovely way to spend a chilly winter's day. Our Little Nature Nest blog has some nice suggestions for the holiday.The Parenting Passageway also has wonderful information. I enjoy celebrating the progression through the darkness of winter, onward toward the longer days of spring and summer!
