Pancakes & Punxsutawney Phil
What in the world do crêpes and groundhogs have in common?
They may seem like an odd couple, but today Americans and the French will rely on them to predict what’s in the cards for us this year. While Phil totters out to check his reflection and determine when winter ends on Groundhog Day ~ our Français friends will be flipping crêpes to mark the holiday “La Chandeleur” ~ hoping the fancy pancakes land perfectly in the pan so they can enjoy good luck for the rest of the year.
Will Phil see his shadow? Will those crêpes have a perfect landing in the pan? Groundhog Day and La Chandeleur are fun traditions, but I’m planning on a delicious year ~ regardless of weather or flip of the wrist. So this morning I’ll enjoy my coffee with a bright & sunny frame of mind, look forward to a sweet year ahead, and hope to break out the Spring frocks soon!
