What is Candlemas?

Candlemas is a Christian holiday occuring annually on February 2 that is commemorating the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple when he was a baby. It occurs 40 days (inclusively) after Christmas Day. In some churches it is celebrated on a nearby Sunday. The term "Candlemas" (meaning Candle Mass) refers to the practice of the blessing of candles by the priest during a church service ("mass") for use during the year in church and in the homes of the faithful.

While in many countries Christmas decorations are traditionally removed on Twelfth Night (January 5, also known as Epiphany Eve), for other countries it is customary to remove them on Candlemas.

Note that the correct spelling is "Candlemas" (with one 's'). "Candlemass" (with two 's') is the name of a Swedish music band.
