Celebrate La Chandeleur (or Crepe Day) on Feb. 2nd in Style
La Chandeleur, also known as Candlemas or Crepe Day is a French tradition that is celebrated every year on February 2nd. According to frenchculturalcenter.org, "Religiously, February 2 is known in the Christian faith as Candlemas (Candlemass). It marks the day that Jesus was presented at the temple in Jerusalem and is celebrated by Christians bringing candles to church to be blessed."
Happening on the same day as Groundhogs day in the US, La Chandeleur is now celebrated by all people in France and before it came to represent Jesus's presentation to the temple it was a day of celebration and food marking the coming end of winter.
