春風駘蕩 -- しゅんぷうたいとう -- shunpuutaitou

The dictionary explains that this means spring breeze (春風) peaceful calm (駘蕩). Warm and genial spring weather, balmy. I got it from one of those calendars of useful sayings that someone gave me. It seemed like a nice, possibly useful phrase as we started into spring. However, when I tried to use it, my wife and other Japanese friends just looked puzzled. Even when I showed them the kanji, this just got shaking heads. No. Not familiar at all. So... I guess we don't have to learn this one! Oh, well.
