En guete Rutsch, everyone!

I learnt that the other day and I have to show it off.
Until then, I thought it was the standard Frohes Neues Jahr, but en guete Rutsch has a certain je ne sais quoi.

So, en guete Rutsch zme!


PS Happy New Year

Re: En guete Rutsch, everyone!

Et Bonne Anne de Romandie - where we don't seem to have an expression like 'a happy slide into ...' lol. Unless you can think of one Suisse Romand or whomever??

Mind you ' a happy slip' (un slip joyeux, mdr) would mean something totally different in Romandie

I believe the saying originates from the fact that many 'happy' people leave a New Years Eve party when the ground is icy.

Good lord, teutonic sarcasm...
