Hey listeners! Did we miss any other holiday greetings? Write them down here!
I'm so sorry for the late response. I assume that your question was for Christmas, but I happened to respond to you the day after. I'm so sorry about this 😞
クリスマス is the right word for Christmas and we only have メリークリスマス or メリクリ for short (used by young people).
Though, since the majority of the people in Japan are not Christians, we don't really say that.
Please let us know if you have any question :)
No answer so far... but I suppose a japanese word for Christmas simply doesn't exist. Maybe because Japan was christianized rather late?
A japanese friend wrote to me クリスマスおめでとう！She is japanese and christian, so I think if there was another word she would use it.
Hi LUIZ NOGUCHI,
Thank you very much for leaving comments!
Glad to hear you liked the lesson.
Yoi o-toshi o!
😄 Domo arigato!!!
"yoi shin'nen o omukai kudasai!!!
I liked it ... quiet different from ...
"akemashite omedetou gozaimasu! "
Do you also have a real japanese word for Christmas? I mean like in other languages: Noel, Natale, Navidad, Kerstmis, Weihnachten, Boże Narodzenie... クリスマス for me sounds a bit like I don't know the japanese word (which is actually true :) ) so I use a transcription of the english one...
What if I want to wish someone for example a peaceful Christmas, a blessed Christmas???
Thank you for asking the question.
Yes, you can say that. People also say:
Can we say shinnen omedeto gozaimasu for Happy New Year? Thank you.
