Candlemas Day

Sarah Ban Breathnach in her book Simple Abundance: A Daybook of Comfort and Joy reminds us to light candles all over our home on Candlemas Day, February 2nd. Bask in the glow. Relax and see how different the world seems without electricity to blur the distinction between night and day. Notice how slow your pace becomes. Consider that you might like to live by candlelight more often. Invest in beeswax candles. They come in a rainbow of exquisite colours and reflect the light beautifully. Store them in the freezer and they will burn twice as long without dripping.
