How to Say Happy Holidays Around the World

Happy holidays around the world

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, the end of the year is the perfect occasion to gather with your friends and family and celebrate! Different countries around the world express their joy in different ways. Here we chose some of our favorite way to say “happy holidays” around the world:

This Italian expression is a literal translation of the English. However, if you happen to be in Italy around the end of December, you might also hear the expression “buon Natale e felice anno nuovo”, or, in English, “merry Christmas and a happy New Year”.

While Chinese people do not traditionally take part in Christmas celebrations, you can still find Christmas trees in global cities such as Shanghai and Beijing.

In Spanish-speaking countries, Christmas is one of the most important celebrations of the Year. However, on the 6thof January many families celebrate the “Three Kings Day”. This holiday celebrates the three magi visiting Jesus, and it is almost as important as Christmas.

Christmas in Russia is traditionally celebrated on the 6thof January. However, with this translation of happy holidays, you can express your best wishes throughout the holiday season without worrying too much about the exact date.

Want to wish happy holidays to your Arabic coworkers and friends? Try with  عطلات سعيدة, or if you prefer the singular (happy holiday) you can use  عطلة سعيدة.
