In English, many of us would greet each various other over the festive duration with a jolly ‘Merry Christmas!’

This dates back to 1699, as soon as an English admiral first used the hatchet in an informal letter. The phrase was then used in Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ in 1843, and has to be the standard seasonal greeting since.

However, we recognize we’re no the just ones come celebrate Christmas, and Saint Nick has to drop presents turn off to people all end the world.
