Today is Candlemas Day which is 40 days after Christmas Day and is traditionally the end of the Christmas Season. It is celebrated as a public holiday in many parts of the world and marks the presentation of the baby Jesus at the Temple in Jerusalem.

In North America this is also ground hog day when ground hogs first appear at the start of spring following their winter hibernation. If they cast a shadow when they appear, then winter is believed to be coming to an end.
