No. 48: Licking the Windows

An ideal way to spend these mild but crisp fall days is to lick the windows around town. Yep. That’s what the French call window-shopping: licking the windows (en français: faire du lèche vitrine). It’s absolutely the perfect phrase as the shop windows in France are so beautifully delicious, you almost want to eat them up, or at least take home a little taste.

  1. Yes- Have just learned the “window licking” phrase at our advanced French class!
    After years of not progressing with our school level French,we have found a native French speaker to teach us and are actually getting somewhere!

    • Good for you. I need to start up class again this month. I don’t want to lose the ground I gained at the end of the year.
