Bonne Année pt. 2

One of the traditions for Epiphany in France is the Galette des Rois, a pastry with a trinket baked inside. Originally this was a bean, then a porcelain object (usually a king or a baby), then plastic. Whoever finds the trinket gets to be king for a day and gets to wear a paper crown (which comes with the pastry). All we could find, however, was that being king for the day obligates you to buy the pastry next year for everyone else.

Our favorite bakery had the Galettes this morning, so we decided that we were game

Guess who found the prize!

King for the day; our bakery still uses porcelain
