Merry Christmas in Any Language



Joyeux Noël, Fröhliche Weihnachten, Mele Kalikimaka, Nollaig chridheil huibh, Feliz Navidad, La Maunia Le Kilisimasi Ma Le Tausaga Fou—what do these phrases have in common?

They all say “Merry Christmas”.


My husband works with a lot of folks from different countries. To be respectful, he personalizes the Christmas cards he writes for each person by saying “Merry Christmas” in their language.

A list of “Merry Christmas” translated to other languages may be found here.
