Candlemas, a Christian holiday, is celebrated on 2nd February. It commemorates three occasions: the presentation of Jesus in the temple, Jesus’ first entry into the temple and Mary’s purification.
Often, candles are blessed on this day and a candle-lit procession may precede the Mass. This represents Jesus as the ‘Light of the World’.
Snowdrops, which flower early in the year, are also known as Candlemas Bells. They symbolise new hope for the future.
