Christmas Is Over

Yesterday, February 2, 2014, marked the end of the 2013-2014 Christmas Season with the celebration of Candlemas.  Candlemas is the celebration of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple.  It is also the traditional day for the blessing of candles.  Now begins the preparation for Lent.

Keep in mind while posting:
1) Please respond ON TOPIC to the article at hand.
2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
