The festival ‘La Chandeleur’ (Candlemas or Crêpe Day) is celebrated in France on 2 February, 40 days after Christmas Day. It involves eating crêpes in the evening and there are some superstitions to go along with this tradition too…

  • Toss the crêpe in the pan with your right hand while holding a piece of gold in your left – for good luck.
  • Put the first crêpe in a drawer or on top of a wardrobe to attract prosperity for the coming year.
