French Friday: Les Crêpes

February 2, 2018 (033/365) • Groundhog Day | La Chandeleur

« À la Chandeleur, l'hiver cesse ou reprend vigueur; Chandeleur couverte, quarante jours de perte. »


I definitely prefer the French holiday and its tradition of eating crêpes to our American Groundhog Day. Yet la Chandeleur also comes with weather predictions:  "On Candlemas, winter ends or strengthens; If covered with snow, forty days to go." It's almost like waiting for the groundhog to see his shadow, but much more delicious!
