Gather with fellow Francophones in celebrating winter with a glass of cidre and a freshly prepared crepe made by our expert chef, Rich Stoops.
There are many different traditions that surround the holiday of the Chandeleur. Though La Chandeleur is often associated with the Catholic holiday Candlemas, the lighting of candles, it actually comes from pagan traditions. Some say Chandeleur celebrates the return of sunny days in the winter, compared to our celebration of Ground Hog Day, the crepes symbolizing the sun, others believe that using flour left over from the harvest ensures prosperity in the coming year.
There is also the traditional coin ritual: if you flip a crepe while holding a coin in the other hand, you and your family will not have to worry about financial difficulties.
Whatever your traditions, please join us at the Baker residence for a delightful winter’s day. Scheduled for February 11th. (Snow date, February 25th, at 2pm).
Members $10.00, Non-members $15.00
A RSVP is required by February 7th.
