As we advance in life it becomes more and more difficult, but in fighting the difficulties the inmost strength of the heart is developed. Vincent Van Gogh

I found that Feb 2 is the date of two holidays. One is Candlemas and the other is Imbolic. Candlemas is a holiday celebrated by people professing to be Christian and Imbolic is a non-Christian or "Pagan" holiday. Both are closely related to the purification of women. One is the purification of Mary, the other the purification of Mother Earth.
Candlemas honors the Mary and Imbolic honors Mother Earth as a goddess.
According to Wikipedia: "Modern Pagans have argued that Candlemas is a Christianization of the Gaelic festival of Imbolc, which was celebrated in pre-Christian Europe (and especially the Celtic Nations) at about the same time of year. This festival marked the mid-way point between the Winter Solstice and the Spring Equinox. The term "Imbolc" translates as either "in milk" or "in the belly," and marked the birth and nursing of the spring lambs as a sign of the first stirrings of spring in the middle of winter."
Wikipedia also has this to say about how they came up with the date for Candlemas.
The date of Candlemas is established by the date set for the Nativity of Jesus, for it comes forty days afterwards. Under Mosaic law, a mother who had given birth to a man-child was considered unclean for seven days; moreover she was to remain for three and thirty days "in the blood of her purification." Candlemas therefore corresponds to the day on which Mary, according to Jewish law should have attended a ceremony of ritual purification. The gospel of Luke 2:22–39 relates that Mary was purified according to the religious law, followed by Jesus' presentation in the Jerusalem temple, and this explains the formal names given to the festival.
In the West, the date of Christmas is now fixed at December 25, and Candlemas therefore falls the following February 2. The dating is identical among Orthodox Christians, except that the ecclesiastic December 25th of most Orthodox Christians falls on January 7th of the civil calendar due to a theological dispute related to the adoption of the Gregorian calendar, meaning that most Orthodox Christians celebrate the feast on February 15th.Also if you research Imbolic at all you will find it steeped in the religion of Witches or Wicca.
So one may wonder why any wanting to please God would want to participate in any of these holidays since they both linked with non-Christian teachings. Something to think about...
