Remember the Nutella craze that took over France last week? On February 2nd, France celebrates La Chandeleur – a Christian tradition that has morphed into a crepe festival.
So while Americans celebrate Groundhog day on the same day, the French will be eating a lot of crepes.. with Nutella!
And if you intend to cook your own crepes to celebrate the French Candle mas, don’t forget that Itâ€™s recommended to toss the crÃªpe in the pan with your right hand while holding a piece of gold in your left – for good luck of course.
Another old tradition has seen people putting the first crÃªpe in a drawer or on top of a wardrobe to attract prosperity for the coming year.0
