Thursday Thirteen #7 - Merry Christmas

Since we have friends all over the globe now (who'd have thunk - we don't even know the kitty next door all that well!) we thought we'd do a Thursday Thirteen of different ways to say "Merry Christmas"!

  1. Mele Kalikimaka (Hawaiian)
  2. Joyeux Noël (French)
  3. Fröhliche Weihnachten (German)
  4. Natale allegro (Italian)
  5. Веселое Рождество (Russian)
  6. Feliz Navidad (Spanish)
  7. Happy Christmas (United Kingdom)
  8. Christmas Alegre (Portuguese)
  9. Καλά Χριστούγεννα (Greek)
  10. Vrolijke Kerstmis (Dutch)
  11. Nollaig shona (Irish Gaelic)
  12. shèng dàn kuài lè (Chinese)
  13. felix dies Nativitatis (Latin)

We know about Mele Kalikimaka, because that's what our Mommy says all the time. But it's not because we're from Hawaii, it's because one of her favorite Christmas Carols is "Mele Kalikimaka" by Jimmy Buffet (or Bing Crosby).

Our Mommy and Daddy are leaving soon to go to California for Christmas, so we won't be around to comment as much. Maybe we'll teleport over to a few of our friends to spend the holidays!

Merry Christmouse and Happy New Year to everykitty!

-Pearl, Bert and Jake

That's a great list! :) My mom is trilingual (English, French, and German), so she says Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noël, and Frohe Weihnachten (or Fröhliche Weihnachten - both are acceptable in German).

I like the last one because it says "felix"! You can come visit me while your mom and dad are away.

Oh no, not Mele Kalikimaka! Now Mommy has that scene from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation stuck in her head!

This semester, Mommy's work had an intern from Khazikstan who spoke about 5 languages. She tried to teach Mommy and her coworkers how to say "Merry Christmas" in each but it was hopeless!

Pearl - I just got the beautiful card that you sent me. I was so very excited to get it that I headbutted it and everything! I will always treasure it! Mommy took some pictures of me with it and says she will post them tommorow! I would love it if you would teleyport over to see me some during the holidays. You can even bring everyone else too, they can play with Jack and the doggies. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
-Love, Dante
