Join us on Saturday, February 6th all day at Alliance Francaise.

 Normally celebrated on the 2nd of February, Chandeleur marks the end of the Christmas period coming exactly 40 days after Christmas. The word “chandeleur” comes from “chandelle” meaning candle. Marking also the halfway point between winter and spring, (like Ground Hog’s Day) in France families celebrate by eating crêpes, which are round and golden like the springtime sun.
