Did you know that? Candlemas is a holiday that we all know, without really knowing its origin.
Candlemas is celebrated every year on February 2nd. The origin of Candlemas is very old since it dates back to the time of the Romans, and then became a pagan and Christian holiday. The term Candlemas comes from the word candles. This festival has a solar connotation, both the shape of the pancakes in golden disk recalls the sun and the end of a seasonal cycle, but also because the pancake made of wheat flour and water represents prosperity.
There are several traditions and superstitions around Candlemas. Some people throw their first pancake with their right hand and try to flip it in the pan while holding a golden Louis in their left hand. But for us, Candlemas is mostly the occasion to succumb to the temptation of a delicious pancake.
