Why?


You might think that

Christmas ends when you take the Christmas decorations down - but

it doesn't!

In ancient tradition Christmas lasts until Candlemas, or the Feast of the Purification of Mary and the Presentation of the Lord, which is February 2nd.

This marks the end of a long 40-day “Christmastide” that corresponded to the 40 days of Lent.

On February 2nd the Church celebrates the day that Mary entered the temple with the Child Jesus when her days of purification after giving birth were fulfilled, according to the Mosaic law, and when Simeon made his well-known prophecy about Mary and the Child. It is historically called “Candle-mas” because of Simeon’s prophecy of Jesus being a light for the Gentiles. Today it is better known as the Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord – and is also the day when we celebrate the Christ Church patronal festival.
