Candlemas Sweet Butter Crepe Candle
Candlemas is a cross-quarter day around February 2nd in the Northern Hempisphere, and the mid-point between two seasonal changes - Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. In the US it is called Groundhog’s Day; St. Bridgid's Day in Ireland, the ancient Celts called it Imbolc and in Scandanavia it’s called Candlemas.
Historically, Candlemas was celebrated with grain-based foods such as crepes, pancakes and oat cakes. Present-day France celebrates by making crepes, which are a symbol of prosperity for the coming year, thus Candlemas is scented with sweet, buttery crepe.
Candlemas is almost universally celebrated by the lighting of a candle, making it the first candle in our six-part Saison Des Fêtes or "Holiday Season" collection. Candlemas aptly features the affirmation "Ignite Desires".
