Each year the aroma of crêpes lingers in the 300 hallway of Warren Hills as French students mark the celebration. Madame Cornec brings in crêpe mixture for her students and bakes the crêpes in front of them. Crêpes, which resemble very thin pancakes, are common street food in Paris. On this holiday, households all over France make crêpes. Madame Cornec wanted to share the delicious French tradition with her students. (Photo courtesy of Sarah Schlaffer)
