February 2nd 2018 / Candlemas celebrations

February 2nd (Candlemas, or Día de la Candelaria) is yet another day in which Mexicans reunite with their families. Following Día de Reyes (January 6th), people that were lucky enough to find a baby figurine in their Rosca de Reyes slice are expected to surprise their family members with tamales on February 2nd. The Oxford Mexican Society was delighted to bring this tradition to Oxford this year!
