Candlemas







Today we celebrated Candlemas, marking the halfway point from the Winter Solstice to the Spring Equinox. Remembering Mary presenting Jesus at the temple, forty days after his birth. Blessing candles to use as we gather around the table in the coming year. Learning about Saint Brigid of Ireland. Eating blueberry pancakes, round like the sun.

  1. One of the most alluring things about waldorf is the emphasis on ritual and rhythm...I'm generally not so good with keeping either of those things but i can see how they would benefit my kids (and myself!).

    1. Oh, I know what you mean about sticking with it. I've been trying to do more with the liturgical year and seasonal year and that has really helped.
