Chandeleur, Fête de la Lumière, or jour des crêpes is a French holiday celebrating the purification of the Virgin Mary and the presentation of baby Jesus–but in actuality, it gives us all a good reason to gorge on crepes. The tradition being that you keep a gold coin in your writing hand and you flip a crepe in the air with the other. Ctach the crepe in the pan and you’ll have prosperity for yourself and your family the rest of the year. Crafty. And though you may not get a chance to do the flipping, you can certainly enjoy the spoils at our Gallic treasure, Provence en Boite (263 Smith St.). Come on in on 1 February and enjoy crepes of all kinds: sugar, jam, chocolate or Grand Marnier. Bring the kids between 4pm and 6pm and you’ll get one free sugar crepe for children under 12 years old.
