Today, for the letter B, it’s not going to be the conventional Bonjour, but a even more romantic than amour – bises.
Bises literally translated mean Kisses. Generally used as a polite and affectionate form while ending letters, Bises are also used in other sentences, like so:
L’enfant fait des bises à sa grand-mère.
The translation is: The child gave her grandmother some kisses.
Mostly, bises mean pecks on the cheek. In singular form is “un bise,” so it’s masculine.
