Happy 'French Candlemas' or 'Jour des Crepes'!


     Candlemas as it is known in France,  is honored on the 2nd day of February by eating Crepes!!! 



The origination of this Catholic holy day was when Mary first presented her baby Jesus in the Temple 40 days after his birth.


And since it is otherwise known as 'jour des Crepes' and la Chandeleur, let's light our candles and chandeliers, and eat crepes on Febuary 2nd in celebration!

                    
                                                    I may even celebrate twice in one day!
