Why do Dutch people wear pancakes on their heads on 29 November?

I don’t know the answer, but I do know that weed has been legal there for a long time.

If I remember my religious instruction, Sint Pannekoek is one of the very holiest of all the imaginary Dutch saints. Also one of the holeyest, probably in second place after Sint Stroopwafel.

  1. My girlfriend in Haarlem has been doing this for years. She and her buds made their pancakes yesterday and then sent out for broodjes. They didn’t eat their pancake hats; apparently some people do.
