A thoughtful French reader, Annabelle, wrote in to make sure I knew today was Chandeleur. Apparently, it’s a holiday that involves making and eating stacks of crepes.

I’m totally on board with any holiday involving stacks of crepes! I’ll take mine with berries and whip cream, please. Or maybe Nutella and bananas. Feel free to join me in celebrating. : )

P.S. — Fun fact: When I looked up the wikipedia entry on Chandeleur, it mentioned that in the U.S. and Canada, this holiday was replaced with Groundhog Day. (Happy Groundhog Day, by the way!)
