Bonne fête de la francophonie!
It's March 20th today, happy International Day of Francophonie~
Chouette ! I didn't know about it. Merci pour le partage. (Thank you for sharing). :-) http://french.about.com/od/francophonie/a/dayoffrancophonie.htm
You don't have to be a native speaker; the holiday is for all French-speaking people. :-)
Haha, don't know if I can call myself a French-speaker - but I'd love to :P
"Francophonie" is an unfortunate name when used in English. It could be interpreted as: 1. It was intended 2. A French person who uses their phone too much http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Phonie 3. People who fake being French http://www.thefreedictionary.com/phonies (Not something that I am likely to achieve with my terrible accent)
