L'hiver, Vive le vent!

L’HIVER

(lee-VAYR* = the winter)

HIVER (ee- VAYR) means winter in French. On this January day, winter is now in full force in the northern hemishere. At my home in Canada, the ground is covered with a dazzling layer of snow. Canada is famous for winter sports including skating, skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and hockey.

Here is the French version of a familiar English song (to the tune of Jingle Bells). It celebrates the lively wind (le vent) of winter:

VIVE LE VENT
Vive le vent, vive le vent, vive le vent d’hiver!
Qui s’en va sifflant, soufflant dans les grands sapins verts, oh!
Vive le vent, vive le vent, vive le vent d’hiver!
Boules de neige et jour de l’An et “bonne année, grand-mère!”
