What significance does February 2 have for Christians?

February 2 is more than Groundhog Day for Christians, it is Candlemas, which commemorates the presentation of Jesus in the Temple.

Candles are blessed and carried in a procession.

In England, the feast is associated with Groundhog Day.

If the weather is sunny on Candlemas, winter will remain; if cloudy, spring will come.
