Having a drink on my birthday!

 

February 2nd is my birthday!!! In Belgium we also celebrate “Lichtmis” (Eng = Candlemass?). The historic origin of the meaning of “Lichtmis” comes from the Latin, candelorum festum, which means feast of candles. It is a custom to bake pancakes on 2nd February. It’s a pagan feast that celebrates the return of light.
