It is a good expression which we may add in a list of our vocabulary of shopping and use in a similar situations also, e.g. bon marchť, discount, en solde, soldes etc.
No doubt, it is an interesting expression. We welcome many more such expressions.
noel malin,maybe it means people who have their own shopping plans,no crazy shoppings in the daily life?
I just got an email from Paypal (en franÁais) and your lesson was very helpful because the phrase most definitely does exist in french as the following quote from the advertisement indicates:
Envie d’un NOňL MALIN ? FAITES-VOUS COACHER !
Les Astuces de NOňL !
Please keep up the good work – your site has proved invaluable to me in learning french – I have been living in Roussillon for two years.
Thanks for this expression – Noel Malin.
Do they use ” Malin” for sales at other occasions as well or only at Christmas.
. . . . . . . . . .
They might say something like “Soyez malin” but I’ve never heard “malin” specifically with other holidays.
