On February 2 the Orthodox Church marks the Christian feast Candlemas, also known as Winter Bogoroditsa. According to the Holy Script, this was the day of presentation of young Jesus to the Jerusalem temple to be consecrated to God. Candlemas is one of the four principal days devoted to the Holy Mother of God (Virgin Mary) and among the twelve major feasts of the year. Candlemas marks the end of what is known as unclean days when the newly born and its mother are particularly susceptible to evil forces. On this day believers revere Virgin Mary and try to appease the forces of evil.
