La Chandeleur

While my American counterparts are celebrating Groundhog Day today {Feb 2} and watch to see if a folkeloric groundhog sees his shadow, determining how much winter is left to suffer through. I’m going to side with the French and celebrate La Chandeleur, a holiday you celebrate by eating crepes. Originally a religious holiday, Candlemas, the French have turned to making crêpes to celebrate the first signs of spring (and a coin is sometimes hidden as a symbolic link to the religious holiday). I’ll take that! To learn more about the holiday, complete with a recipe for crêpes, check out Clotilde’s blog Chocolate & Zucchini.
