Bonne Année: How to say Happy New Year in French

Photo taken on New Year's Day. May we all follow le Père Noel's example, here, and keep reaching for the next foothold in the 2011. As we see, in the image above, a closed door is no more than a good impetus to go searching for a better way in! There are so many inlets leading to our BIG DREAM. May we not be discouraged, but persevere in the new year. 

Bonne Année! Happy New Year!

Je vous présente tous mes voeux de santé et de bonheur pour 2011. Best wishes for a healthy and happy 2011.
