I cannot put on my Christmassy self, I am French (untranslatable # 001)

November 22, 2010
Translating Christmassy to French is not one of those cases where you are going to lose bits of concepts in the process of using a periphrasis. You will end up saying typical of Christmas [typique de Noël], which is exactly the Oxford Dictionnary definition. But it is one of those cases where you will learn that the French mind does not really care about Christmas. At least not enough to have a special adjective to rate the real Christmas nature of an object or an event.
