That's the one!   :)
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

Happy birthday Bishop Duncan.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Happy birthday Uncle Duncan.
May your birthday be filled with sunshine... 
Oh wait, today is not a good day to see your shadow... don't need winter to last longer...
May your day be filled with warm hearths and candles and mulled wine...
And all your extended family greeting you with merry cheers!

Did you just imply our good bishop is a groundhog?   ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Why ever would you think so? No, of course not, Your Grace. But if the sun is shinning, I ask that you stay indoors and don't go hunting for those pesky varmints. We don't want to scare them back in to their holes for another six weeks. 
Happy Birthday Bishop Duncan.

Thank you all for the kind sentiments! 

As we don't have your exotic groundhogs in Gwynedd, the humble badger shall have to do, although the tradition of sunny skies during Candlemas being a portent of a longer winter does date back to well before my time. I assure you I shan't be standing out of doors in early February to see if I can spot my shadow or not.  A roaring fire, good company, and a mulled Fianna await once my day's work is behind me.   :)

Sigh.   More outlandish clothing for my miniature doppelganger, I see. Don't make me have to excommunicate you, Evie!

Unfortunately lots of opportunities for shadows in modern day Gwynedd today (or Britain anyway) and the temperature has disappeared back below zero (in centigrade that is).
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

I'd be much more alarmed if that was Fahrenheit, but unfortunately we've become no stranger to below-zero Celsius temps here lately, especially at night.    :(
