Candlemas is February 2 of every year. It is also known as the Feast of the Presentation of our Lord and the Purification of Our Lady. It is when Our Lady and St. Joseph presented their First Born son in the Temple in accordance with the Law.
Mary, by law, had to wait 40 days to go to the temple after giving birth. While Mary had no need of purification, she submitted to the Law, which God established.
