Mmmm, I like the layered pancakes with honey, fresh whipped cream and fruit.

Another old tradition also saw people putting the first crêpe in a drawer or on top of a wardrobe to attract prosperity for the coming year.

surprised  - I think they might be attracting a bit more than just prosperity with that old tradition!
