Jour J – French expression

Macron

le Jour J –  the big day – Mot du Jour

le jour J – the day J. J stands for Jour, very much like D stands for Day in the English expression D-Day. Le Jour J, in everyday French, means ‘the days one had been waiting for for a long time’, ‘the scheduled day’, or  ‘the big day’.

D-Day is also used in a historical context, to talk about D-Day, the Day the A  llied landed in Normandy.

Similar to le Jour J, you’ll hear l’heure H and l’Instant T, although ‘instant’ doesn’t start with T 🙂

  • « Le Jour J, les Français ont voté pour un président très européen. »
    • “On the big day, the French voted for very pro-Europe president.”
