Today is Candlemas - the midway point between the beginning of winter and the beginning of spring.  For some this celebration holds deep spiritual meaning, but since we have little ones in the house ours is more about the doing.  We will have dinner by candlelight and perhaps make some of our own candles.  As a family we will look toward the approaching warmer weather and look at the direction we as a family want to go (i.e. spend more family time outside, vacation plans, etc.)

Since we also live in Pennsylvania, we have Groundhogs Day all over the media. Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow, so according to tradition, spring is on it's way.

I am up for that.

  1. I had no idea about Candlemas. Thanks for sharing what it is! My favorite, favorite season is Spring, so I was thrilled by Phil's prediction!
