Saying Merry Christmas Around The Pond

Saying Merry ChristmasToday, saying ‘Merry Christmas’ is fast becoming a politically incorrect way of greeting people around the Yule time season in some quarters as more and more people are expressing a preference for the term, ‘Happy Holidays.’

However, it would take a tsunami-like cultural shift to get rid of the term ‘Merry Christmas’ as a form of greeting since this is not only a preferred term by people all over the world, but also one that many have come to accept, cherish, and love.

In an ad hoc selection of 10 different countries around the world, here is how one is likely to be greeted this Yule time season:

1. China     – Sheng Tan Kuai Loh

2. Japan     – Merii Kurisumasu

3. Germany – Frohliche Weihnachten

4. Haiti      – Jwaye Nwel

5. Cuba      – Feliz Navidad

6. Jamaica – Merry Crismus

7. Israel     – Mo’adim Lesimkha

8. Egypt     – Mboni Chrismen

9. Russia    – Hristos Razdajetsja, Rozdjestvom Hristovim

10. Pakistan – Bara Din Mubarrak Ho
