Well, I guess that it might be because it's related to spanish somehow. I don't have the exact explanation but it might be that. In spanish we say "en familia" which it's the same but the other is in french. In English the literal translation is "in family" but, in the translation it is "with my family". When we say "en famille" we are saying with my family, but if you say "avec famille" we don't know if your referring to your own family. At least that's how I think it is. You just need to use it when you refer to eat with your family in Spanish and French.
I have no idea how to explain why we use "en famille" but when we're doing something with our family we usually say "en famille" when we're doing something with our family whatever your doing it have great chance to be "en famille" im sorry if it's not clear I have no idea how to explain it...
@Agustina17 Merci beaucoup😀 Studying European languages is very interesting for me. They are often related to each other. Thank you for telling me about Spanish. I'd like to know about European languages!
