02 February 2007


i always liked the name of this day. midway between the winter solstice and the vernal equinox, its one of the first signs of the coming spring. used to be it was the official end to the christmas season, a time when all the greens and holly decorating the dwelling needed to come down lest bad luck befall the inhabitants of the home. it was also a day to bless the beeswax candles that were going to be used in the home in the year to come. nowadays its just plain groundhog day and no he didnt see his shadow. either way i look on it as a good opportunity to post yet another photo of a candle.
