That's Latvian, with the ZiemassvÁtki standing for "winterfest" and not being a Christian thing, having been celebrated by Pagan Latvians, too.

St. Leo ?
Thanks. I actually googled for the appropriate adjective last night, but didn't find anything. Lousy declensions.

BTW, some of those characters are misrendering over here.

Without elongating accents -- just draw out every vowel and you'll be speaking like a native-born Latvian in no time flat -- it would be:

Priecigus Ziemassvetkus.

Whoo, pagans, whoo!

That's the Catholic version (lit: Blessed Christmas). Us ordinary people just say :"Gelukkig kerstfeest" or "Prettige kerstdagen".
Hmm, that's like saying "a happy christmas and a happy new-year"

That's not PC crap... it's called "not being an ignorant dumbass"... because not everyone is Christian. So someone saying "Merry Xmas" to a Jew or a Muslim is ignorant. Happy Holidays is just a one-size-fits-all way of spreading holiday joy without having to find out their life's history or cultural background.

Serbian: Hristos se Rodi is the greeting... Vaistinu se Rodi is the response...
