“A la Chandeleur l’hiver se meurt ou prend vigueur” (At Chandeleur winter dies or gets sronger again) There are lots of expressions to do with Chandeleur about the winter ending and the sun returning. It is thought that this is why the French eat crêpes on this day as they are big and round and golden like the sun. Dirleton P7 had a go at following a recipe in French to make crêpes today. We didn’t get round to tossing them with a coin in our other hand which is meant to bring prosperity. Another tradition is to put the first crêpe made on top of a wardrobe for next year which ensures next year’s harvest …. we didn’t get round to that either, I’m afraid! On les a toutes mangées!! Elles étaient vraiment bonnes vos crêpes - bravo aux chefs!
