Happy New Year!

In France people commonly wish a happy new year to each other by « Bonne année ! Bonne santé ! » You may also use a longer and more sophisticated wish like “ I wish you a year full of happiness and achievement.” French people exchange New Year greetings  when they meet in the street or at work. Preferably, they would call friends and family on January 1st or, as far as the youngest, would send a text.
