FRENCH LESSON: Un Ange Qui Passe
There’s a wonderful French saying for the moment when a conversation naturally halts. Christmas / Chanukah / Thanksgiving / Birthday / dinner (or anytime) there is great festivity, and then you take a pause and realize there is no one talking. Someone points out, “C’est un ange qui passe” and everyone agrees, as they smile at the idea of an angel (un ange) passing above.
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy and festive holiday season!

In Spain we say “Se fue el santo al cielo” = “The saint could get to heaven”; Feliz Navidad; Joyeux Noël. Please do not eat too much.
