About This Event
Also called Crêpe Day, la Chandeleur is a French holiday during which people traditionally eat crêpes and drink cidre.
Though la Chandeleur is often associated with the Catholic holiday of Candlemas, it actually stems from pagan traditions. And, of course, there is the traditional coin ritual: if you can flip a crêpe while holding a coin in your other hand, you and your family will not have to worry about financial problems. There is even a fun legend that ties Napoleon's misfortune with his time in Russia with the flipping of the crêpes!
