~ la Chandeleur ~ jour des Crepes
   My mantel is dedicated to 'Candlemas' which is celebrated on February 2nd in France and known as 'la Chandeleur'.  It is a Catholic holiday honoring the Christ child being presented to the public by his Mother Mary.  Everyone eats crepes in France on this day and it is otherwise known as 'Crepe Day'!  This is one I'm looking forward to and I think I'll add Candlemas to my list of favorite holidays!    (So much nicer then groundhog day)
