Letters From Santa
I found a web site that lets your kids get a personalized letter from santa. It is www.ezsantaletters.com. You give them a little info about your children, like their age, their favorite color, what they want for Christmas, etc. then they will receive a hand written letter from Santa post marked the north pole addressed to them. My kids loved it. The man who does this takes orders in English only to help his shopping cart tech, but the letters will be translated into any language. I think this is the neatest thing.
then, how about happy new year?
Happy New Year = Bonne Nouvelle Annťe
Christmas Eve = Veille de Noel
French is such a beautiful language. It just rolls of your tongue(or you get tongue-tied, like me)
Thanks for these expressions in French, they sound lovely.
Tomorrow, I'll read to some of my pupils the translation into french of "the night before christmas" by Clement Moore. In french it 's "La nuit avant NoŽl".
I'll explain them the origins of Santa Claus (Le PŤre NoŽl)
