Merry Christmas in Different Languages

Xmas Greetings

Australia is such diverse multicultural society that a guide to giving this traditional greeting in a few different languages seems warranted. This diversity in our population  brings a variety of holy days, celebrations and traditions as well as modern variations, for us to enjoy.

Please share other greetings, languages, practises, traditions, anecdotes, stories or memories etc as you like, in the Comments.

From all at The Pub we wish you a Merry Christmas or equivalent and a Happy New Year.

Thank you, all our The Pub readers, contributors, commenters and lurkers. Pull up a seat at the bar, get your favourite beverage and toast all your wonderful efforts, and results in 2022. You are never alone in The Pub!

The KYIV Shchedryk  Children′s Choir singing  ′The Carol of the Bells’ in Carnegie Hall to celebrate the 100 year anniversary of its first performance there

It was written by Ukrainian musician Mykola Leontov. The children′s bravery, by singing in Carnehie Hall as their country is beset by invasion, is awe-inspiring and humbling. No doubt some of them have experienced loss of loved ones, homes and schools, while practising in the dark as Russian missiles hit their cities and villages. Or their families are in danger back in Ukraine; their parents, siblings, in a war zone.

If anyone deserves love and mercy this Christmas it is the children of Ukraine. 💟

May it be so.
