French Word(s) of the Day: bonne année (bone ann-nay)- Happy New Year!

I always want to say the direct translation of Happy New Year, which is bonne nouvelle année, but the French cut out the “new” part.  You’re just going around saying “Happy year!” to people.  Really, you could mean any year, but I guess the French have evolved beyond the English-speaking world because they just KNOW what you mean.

Michelle’s cat is wishing you a pleasant 2012!
