Candlemas and pancakes
What is Candlemas?
Candlemas is an old tradition in Europe.
The feast concludes the festivities of Christmas before Lent.
The great fasting.
It is a spiritual and cosmic event.
Since it is also the beginning of the cosmic spring.
The days are growing faster.
The Light is omnipresent again
The feast of Light!
And the pancakes?
Pancakes are eaten as a symbol of prosperity
for the coming year.
And wheater quotes tell us
that winter grows colder
or cold tempers in those days
For this years it looks like growing colder
And the candles ?
Candles are blessed, lit and presented in the churches
To commemorate the Presentation of Jesus
at the Temple of Jerusalem.
Son of the divine Law
