No Matter How You Say It

Glaedelig Jul --Danish (where I lived for a semester in college)

Froehliche Weihnachten --German (All of my heritage and half of Mr. GT's)

Mithag Crithagsigathmithags --Jibberish  (which my kids think they speak)

Shub Naya Varsh --Marathi  (the first language of Sunshine)

God Jul --Norwegian  (what Mr. GT says we are, now that we've lived in Southern WI for 20 years)

Puthuvalsara Aashamsakal  --Malayalam  (Banana Boy's first language and how my grandpa would have said it when he lived in India)

Feliz Navidad --Spanish (how Rose Bud will wish you)

djoyeus Noye --Walloon Belgian  (half of Mr. GT's heritage and one-fourth of the kids)

Hosa Varushada Subhasayagalu --Kannada  (the language of BB's birth place)

No matter how you say it, may you be blessed by the birth of the One who came to save the world.  He was born for You and for Me.

Merry Christmas!
