Add all that to the nice timing as a little something to brighten up the winter blahs after Christmas (Feb. 2nd) and- oh, yeah- we're doing this.
|Candlemas Bells. Squee!|
Sigh. We didn't do any of those things.
But, you know, maybe we will some day; or maybe you will, and you can tell me how it went.
What we did do is say, "Happy Candlemas" to people, looked out the window for signs of spring, and then two days later planted some tulips. Amani liked it. Whenever she sees spring flowers she shouts, "Thank you Candlemas!" In my book, that is a complete score.
