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!  Smiley  Merry Christurgy!

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.

Nonne sunt omnes missae Christi et felices?  police

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

 Christos razdajetsja!  (Christ is born!)  Slavite jeho!  (Glorify Him!)
