Hi All,

I think we don't have an exact match for this in our language, although I can guess that it could be the same as "enjoy the life". Is it so, and are there some nuances as well?
Thanx.

    We say:
    Celebrate life.
    Enjoy life.
    Live life to its fullest.
    Live today as if it were your last.
    Appreciate the simple things in life.

    Aww, I feel warm inside now. Thanks, System! :p

    Live, love, laugh.
    Take time to smell the roses.
    Always look on the bright side of life. (Any more Monty Python fans out there?)
    Seize the day.

    Don't sweat the petty stuff...and don't pet the sweaty stuff. :p

    "Celebrate THE life" is usually only used at funerals, especially by atheists, who do not believe in life after death.

    "We are gathered here to celebrate the life of John Smith" = "We are gathered here to remember all of the good things in the life of John Smith"
