Forty days after Christmas Candelaria (Candlemas) is celebrated, which officially marks the end of the Christmas period and in the Vatican, Christmas decorations are kept until that dayIn Medieval and Tudor times too, the Eve of Candlemas (1st February) was when Christmas decorations and greenery were removed from homes and churches. 

February 2 - Virgen de la Candelaria (Candlemas), in Tenerife is a public holiday.

There are no municipal holidays in February this year.

Under normal circumstances, February would be the busy month of carnival, but due to the current levels of COVID infections, Santa Cruz Carnival 2022 is to be held in June.
