Réveillon Hello :D I'd like to know from native English speakers if the French word "Réveillon" is common used in your country to refer to the New Year's Eve, party or anything else related.

No. The word is common in South America like Brazil, but not in USA.

"Réveillon" - never!! In the UK it´s always New Year´s Eve except in Scotland where it is known as Hogmanay.

I've personally never heard it used. I'm from America. I'm not sure about other English speaking countries, though.

US: no. "Revels" ("a lively party") is used occasionally and "revelling" is a fancy, uncommon way of saying "partying." But I've never heard/read "reveillon."
