Je vous souhaitant à tous les ans sécurité et au chaud Nouveau.
Mai vos ennuis être peu nombreuses, et votre amour pour longtemps.
Se souvenir de ceux qui ne sont pas avec nous, et mai, ils apportent un sourire sur votre visage quand vous pensez à eux.
Je lève un verre de champagne à vous tous.
I am wishing you all a safe and warm New Years. May your troubles be few, and your love be long. Remember those that are not with us, and may they bring a smile on your faces when you think of them. I raise a glass of Champagne to you all.

May 1 is a public holiday. Post offices, banks, stores and other businesses are closed. Outside of tourist areas, restaurants and cafes may be closed. However, some stores in Paris, as well as at airports and railway stations and along major highways, may be open. Public transport service schedules vary depending on where one lives and intends to travel. Parades and demonstrations may cause disruption to traffic in the centers of large cities, particularly Paris.

A gouter is the snack that all children in France have at 4pm. Very popular is a chunk of baguette with a bar of chocolate in the middle! Believe it or not this is a very popular afternoon snack among French children. If that seems excessive, get hold of a jar of Nutella - chocolate spread - as a good alternative. Every single person in France is familiar with Nutella.
