cotillons

What does the French word ' cotillons ' mean? How is it used in a sentence? Listen to Anne Audio.

The word cotillon is an old word that used to mean a petticoat, or raggedy skirts poor women would wear in the old days. Today, it's often plural les cotillons, and it means sets of noise-makers, confetti and streamers you get when you go to a silly party.

  • « Eh, tu prendras les cotillons pour le réveillon du nouvel an? »
  • "Hey, will you get the noise-makers and streamers for the New Year's party?"

Note: 'le réveillon' is a special word for either Christmas or the New Year's eve party in France.
