I've been wondering what makes French language so romantic for some people. I like speaking French although I still have to learn more about it.

We have use these words 'Joyeux Noël' as a greeting banner during a Christmas party 2 years ago.

Oh, and can anyone speak other languages aside from English? Well, I speak Tagalog as a national language of the Philippines.

Did you use a translator by any chance?

I think you need to work on your French vocabulary, Blue. That sounds like a very bad translation from one of those translator websites that churn out gibberish. :)

If Oceane is from Mauritius, then he or she might well speak French as a first language. It's widely used there. :)

My rusty French tells me it's more like: "Thank you for the wishes Blue, it is nice to see them in French. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too." :)

Lol, Kathryn. Wish I shouldn't have use that gibberish translator.

On second thought, that language which has bad grammar made me laugh.

Jet's right, French is my first language, though unlike you i haven't figured out a way to put the accents. As for "rusty" Jet's translation is accurate... In any case Best wishes to all of you, wish the weather was a bit cooler my way though.
