Tomorrow Sunday is St. Agnes Day.
Tradition is: young maidens on the Eve of St. Agnes will dream of their future husband.

St. Agnes Day is traditionally the coldest day of the year. In theory it is supposed to get warmer now with each day.

It certainly has been ‘cold’ here what with temperatures dropping down into the lower 30s even into the upper  20s. It only gets into the lower 60s now. And it rained! Making everything seem chilled and damp.

Today is the day I traditionally read the poem “The Eve of St. Agnes” by Keats.
It is a long but lovely poem. I remember my high school English teacher reading this out loud. The poem is too long to reproduce here, but here is the link for those interested;

Here’s looking forward to some warmer/brighter days.
