As the light grows longer
The cold grows stronger
If Candlemas be fair and bright
Winter will have another flight
If Candlemas be cloud and rain
Winter will be gone and not come again
A farmer should on Candlemas day
Have half his corn and half his hay
On Candlemas day if thorns hang a drop
You can be sure of a good pea crop
Today, there will be fersommlingeand g'spiel in parts of Pennsylvania should you choose to participate. If you speak English at any of this events you may be fined a nickel. It is a time to re-rent the movie GROUNDHOG DAY, knowing only 48 days til spring . Ah, yes, as I listen to the rain on my skylights and look at the snow on the ground, we celebrate SPRING!!!
I doubt that Punxsutawney Phil (a face only a mother could love)
has seen his shadow, let alone dare to come out of his burrow. So where will you be going to celebrate today?
