Bienvenue à la classe de français.—-
The first semester of French classes has gone very well. It seems impossible that we only have one semester left to the year. How time does fly!
Here are a few French Christmas terms to finish out the year.
Joyeux Noël—Merry Christmas
Bonne Année—-Happy New Year
Père Noël—Father Christmas—He wears a long red robe with white trim and black boots and he brings gifts to the children on December 6th.
Le Réveillon de Noël—the Christmas meal—held late in the night after midnight mass on Dec. 24th or during the day on Dec. 25
Les étrennes—a nice gift of money to the mailman, cleaning lady, etc.
La crèche—the manger scene in English but in French it is representative of the night of the birth of baby Jesus.
Enjoy the vacation.
