    In Serbian:
    Срећан Божић и Нова Година
    But we never congratulate those two at one. Since we celebrate Orthodox Christmas 7th Jan we say:
    Христос се роди!
    And reply is
    Ваистину се роди!

    Happy TT :)
    Cheers!

  16. That's nice to know. In the Philippines we say "Maligayang Pasko"

    ReplyDelete
  17. For the Russian you need Krhistovom (Christ's) after the Rozhdestva(birth) because it's greetings on the celebration of Chirst's birth and new year. It's hard to spell Christ phonetically :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you Tink. Enjoy your holiday! We will miss you next week.

    ReplyDelete

  21. That's very cool that people still say it. In this part of the world, it's frayed into "happy holidays." These are beautiful. Nice to see how different languages reveal the same sentiments.
