The end of the holidays in New England sees us going from a joyous winter wonderland of expectations to the cold reality of January. But January too is a time of expectation in the Orthodox Church, for it leads to February, which begins with the feast of the Entrance Of The Lord in the second of the month. This date is more famous in America as Groundhog Day. The Entrance (or Meeting) Of The Lord celebrates Christ's and his mother's 40 day blessing in the Temple - a tradition which continues to this day among new mothers and children in our Church. February 2 marks the turning of our calendar as well - all things point to the buildup to Lent, Lent itself, and ultimately the Resurrection from this day forward.
