With Valentine’s day (la Saint-Valentin) right around the corner, love is in the air! Unlike English cultures, Valentine's day in France is an occasion for lovers to celebrate their romantic love for each other, contrary to the United States which also includes loving/friendship gestures to friends and family. So this year, if you want to charm your love interest, you can call them by any of the following French nicknames and terms of endearment, used for “special someones”: mon ange (my angel), mon bébé (my baby), mon coeur (my heart), doudou (my blankie or cuddly thing), mon trésor (my treasure), ma chèrie (say to woman), mon chèrie (say to man) my darling, mon amour (my love). That should help your sweetie feel your love! So in honor of Valentine’s Day (La saint Valentin), let’s celebrate international love by exploring the everlasting love story going on between France and the US. Here are some past and current famous franco-american couples:
Joyeuse Saint Valentin!
