In France, crêpes are traditionally served on February 2. This day was originally Virgin Mary’s Blessing Day but became known as “avec Crêpe Day”, referring to the tradition of offering crêpes. The belief was that if you could catch the crêpe with a frying pan after tossing it in the air with your left hand and holding a gold coin in your right hand, you would become rich that year.
I found a lovely little Crêperie today in the 4th arrondissement where I got my favourite – Crêpe Nutella – NOM NOM NOM.
I also found some amazing candy and chocolate shops. I will definately need two seats on the plane home.
