February 2nd is "La Chandeleur," or Candlemas. Deriving from the Latin, ‘Festa Candelarum’, meaning ‘Festival of Candles’, Candlemas was the day of the year when all candles to be used by churches during the coming year were delivered and blessed. Candlemas, also known as the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, closes the Christmas/Epiphany season. In some countries, Christmas decorations are not removed until Candlemas.
Ms. Longou, Ms. Dubovik and Mr. Samba, along with the French Honor Society, celebrated that day with handmade crêpe for sale during lunch.
