    English is the only language permitted on GBAtemp, but being on the internet our members come from all over the world speaking all sorts of facinating and fantastic languages.

    In Cantonese we say sing3 daan3 faai3 lok6.

    The 3 indicates a medium flat tone and the 6 indicates a low flat tone. The "k" sound at the end of the word "lok6" does not get pronounced, though you do move your tounge into position as though you were about to pronounce it.

    So leave a comment below wishing everyone a Merry Christmas in your own language (or languages!).

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    I don't celebrate Christmas. Anyway, the Portuguese (Azores + Portugal) language for Merry Christmas is:

    Feliz Natal

    Feliz Navidad - Spanish, despite being a Latino, Spanish is my second, or even third language as I think I know more German than that. English being my first.

    In Bulgaria we say "Chestita Koleda" or "Vesela Koleda" which written in Cyrillic characters are "Честита Коледа" or "Весела Коледа" =]
    P.S. - Here is how to pronounce it - (Bulgarian is in RED)
