Celebrating Candlemas: Cheers to Light and Hope!

On this day, February 2nd, we celebrate Candlemas, also known as the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus Christ and the Purification of the Virgin Mary, exactly 40 days after His birth. The festival comes with many names because of its rich biblical origins and cultural traditions, but today we will highlight Candlemas as the “Celebration of Light and Hope.”
