    I'll add a few from languages and/or places I have been exposed to: 1)- German: Frohe Weihnachten 2)- French: Joyeux Noël 3)- This next one is sort of a mixed version that can be used by Iroquois/Cree/Mohawk(Canadian First Nations): Ojenyunyat Osrasay(there is also this version: Mitho Makosi Kesikansi) 4)- Japanese: Kurisumasu Omedeto 5)- Dutch: Vrolijk Kerstfeest 6)- I met some people during my time in Scotland who are keeping alive the Gaelic-Scots: Nollaig Chridheil :D

    Feliz Navidad .... okay... I've only seen the words... But being from South Texas,,, I imagine this is the way peeps say in down the Rio Grand Valley.. I've also seen it on greeting cards. I know a Spanish song with the same title... Okay, I'm gonna stick to the way I say it... "Merry Christmas"... to PD
