Today's the eve of the Chinese New Year. I wish that the Year of the Sheep will bring good luck to you all! Bonne année de la Chèvre!
So you love eating the sheep! well... Poor creature! But mouton is certainly a great delicacy! lol
Thanks for your reply. Best wishes!
thanks for your best wishes. I wish you all the best for the year of the SHEEP.
please have a look at this:
Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, sends his regards to the Chinese people via a video for the year of the Sheep. He used the word sheep. This is actually what I have learnt in class.
As to l'année de la Chèvre, I used this term, because I had read an online French-learning post, where there was a dicussion on the translation of the animal in French. Many argue that it should be goat, not sheep. Hence l'année de la Chèvre, other than l'année du Mouton. I therefore copied the term. As far as I remember, our French teacher at university taught us l'année du Mouton, not de la Chèvre. This is quite confusing to me, too.
Happy New Year!
Just one question: It is the Year of the Goat? L' année de la Chèvre? Or the Year of the Sheep? L' année du Mouton?
I love sheep. That reminds me - I have lamb chops in the fridge.
