February 2nd

From my Country Wisdom and Folklore Diary



There are lots of weather sayings for February many of them connected to the Ancient Imbolc which became the Christian Candlemas, the most well known is
If Candlemas Day be fair and bright
Winter will have another flight
If Candlemas be dark with clouds and rain
Winter is gone and won't come again.

I'm loving this diary, it has sunrise and sunset times for every day so I can cheerfully say that daylight hours got longer by about 15  minutes over this week - Whoopee!

Many thanks for comments on yesterdays post

Back Soonish
