That's Latin for Merry Christmas to all you Orthodox. ;D

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio, contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.

My latin is non-existent, so when I saw the thread title I thought it was about some guy named Felix dying on nativity... glad I was wrong!  :)  Merry Christurgy!

There are different variations according to context I suppose you could say  Felix Missa Christi. ;)

I'd like to hear maybe from some of the other Eastern languages way of the Christmas greeting that we in the Latin Church don't hear often if it's possible.

Felix Missa Christi. ;)

Nonne sunt omnes missae Christi et felices?  :police:

translation: aren't all masses of Christ and happy?

In Rusyn (with close approximations to Ukrainian, Slavonic, and a few others...):

 Christos razdajetsja!  (Christ is born!)  Slavite jeho!  (Glorify Him!)
"May Thy Cross, O Lord, in which I seek refuge, be for me a bridge across the great river of fire.  May I pass along it to the habitation of life." ~St. Ephraim the Syrian
