Merry Christmas!

To our all our friends who celebrate Christmas, have a very merry one!

I hope you’ll join us in sending Christmas greetings to the American, British, and other Allied troops serving in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the Christian soldiers serving in the IDF who are defending freedom, passionately serving a cause greater their own self-interest.

Please enjoy the following short video, which maps out the very first Christmas through the eyes of social media.

  1. I second that, and wish everyone who writes in or reads CifWatch the compliments of the season and a peaceful and contented 2011.

    Except Anjem Choudhary if he should happen to look in, who believes that Christmas is evil and will go down in history as the Islamist grinch who tried to steal Christmas.

  2. The link to the US page gives the opportunity to send a message of support, but the UK one doesn’t Adam.

  3. thanks Yehudi
    you are all so sweet, knowing all what to say to “us”, when we have a holiday but leaving at least me always a bit in doubt as to what is the appropriate wording for me to use for well-wishing for your different holidays.

  4. While we remember the foreign forces and indeed wish them compliments of the season, we shouldn’t forget those known as Hayalim Bodedim – lone soldiers, many of them Christian, who volunteer to serve in Tsahal, as well as our own Christian soldiers.

  5. Silke, to answer your question, “Chag same’ach” (“ch” gutteral, as in “Loch Ness”) works for most occasions. It means “Happy Holy Day.”

    Or you could just say “Happy holiday” (or “Happy Passover” or “Happy Shavu’ot” or whatever) 🙂

    The only one* for which “chag same’ach” is not really appropriate is Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement). Then it would be “I wish you well over the Fast” (more common in the UK than in North America) or “Have an easy Fast.”
    *well, any of the other fast days as well, but you’re nowhere near as likely to be aware of those as of Yom Kippur.

    Hope this helps.

  6. ‘defending freedom, passionately serving a cause greater their own self-interest.’

    Let’s also bear a thought for their victims in this time of peace and goodwill to all mankind.
