On Feb 2nd, French celebrates la Chandeleur / Candelmas ( Feast of Candles). On this day they prepare pancakes - crêpes. So It's also called pancake day. According to the tradition , take a coin in the left hand while flipping the pancake in the air. If the pancake lands back in the pan , there's good luck for the flipper in the coming year. So get ready to prepare pancakes :)
