BUT WHAT IS LA CHANDELEUR?
La Chandeleur is always celebrated on 2 February, 40 days after Christmas. The name comes from the latin “festa candelarum”, which means “fête des chandelles”. For Christians and Catholics, it represents the day on which Baby Jesus was presented at the temple.
But today, even if the majority of French people are non-religious, they still eat crêpes for La Chandeleur.
