"Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
On a warm Hawaiian Christmas Day"
To my friends and family around the world,
We Visayans say, Maalipayon nga Pascua. Elsewhere in the
the Philippines it's Maligayang Pasko!
To my good friends in Germany - Klara, Sonia, Marico, Trini, a warm Frohes Weihnachtsfest!
Joyeux Nöel to Maryse, my friend of many years.
Mele Kalikimaka to Nancy and Larry in Honolulu.
Feliz Navidad to friends in Mexico, especially Josefina and cousins in Spain.
André, Deborah and family, Rochelle, all in Amsterdam, a big hug and Gelukkig Kerstfeest.
Good Jul to Rahman and family in Sweden.
Veselé Vánoce to my good friend, Noubikko, in Prague.
Bom Natal to Rui in Portugal.
Buon Natale to Sisters Marcellina and Sofia and the
Sisters of St.Bridget in Assisi.
Wishing you the joy of Mary on the birth of her son, Jesus Christ, whose birthday we celebrate on Christmas day. May you be blessed a thousandfold with hope and love, both symbols of His birth
