Happy New Year!

This is what you will say to people at midnight, when the balloons are lofting towards the ceiling and the fireworks are dazzling your eyes.

Un an is a year, if all you are doing is counting them. But une année is rich with the implication of all the activities that will fill the year, like a stocking packed to the top with gifts waiting to be unwrapped.

When you write the greeting on a card or letter, it is usual to write something like Une bonne et prospère année. You are wishing them not wealth and riches, but the feeling of prosperity that accompanies having enough for one’s needs.

And so I wish all of you Une bonne et prospère année !
