#include<iostream>
using namespace std;

int main ()
{
cout<<"Merry Christmas!"<<endl;
return 0;
}


....hey, there was a guy who did it in binary which isn't even a language, so C++, being a (computer) language is totally legit!

Hello,

Let's have a thread that says Merry Christmas in as many languages as we can get!

Well, we've had Sindarin, Quenya, and Thlingan Hol, so here's Esperanto:

Feliĉan Kristnaskon!  (feh-LEECH-ahn nahsk-TAHG-ohn)

OK,I could not say that "圣诞节快乐"is wrong,but it sounds "non-orthodox".During the period of Nativity,we greet with"合利斯托斯降生哉“(hristos jiang sheng zai——Χριστὸς γεννᾶται),and the answer is:"眾宜予榮贊” (zhong yi yu rong zan——δοξάσατε).
By the way,we do not call Nativity as 圣诞(“圣诞”is the term traditionally indicate the birth of a sage like Confucius or Mencius;or the birth of one emperor. )We call Nativity as "主降生(the Gennesis of the Lord)“or "救世者降生大瞻礼(the great celebration of the Gennesis of the Saviour)”.
Of course this is the way we EO do, I do not know how about the coptic chinese. (Since they are under the diocese of Australia,I suppose that they use only coptic and english in their religious life).

The greeting I wrote was nothing more than the secular greeting.

Brazilian Portuguese:

Feliz Natal!

Phonemic transcription based on English pronunciation:

/fehLEEZ nahTAoo/


 or, if you want to say it with Rio's accent /fehLEESH naTAoo/.
