    Leopold, the sense of what you said is correct, of course, but in English you would say I "take" the occasion.

    Merry Christmas,

    Thanks lsp,
    i wasn't sure about it, but the WordReference.com dictionary entry was:
    cogliere l'occasione
    rise to the occasioncogliere l'occasione
    use the occasion
    Anyway, i take the occasion to wish you happy holidays. :)
