Hi Erik,


Thanks for the comment.

聖誕祭 is not often used in Japan. Maybe used only when referring to the bible. How Christmas is celebrated in Japan, please see the following video:

Hi L,


Thanks for the question.

"Is there a phrase like 'belated merry Christmas' in Japanese?"

There's no set phrase, but people may say;

遅くなりましたが(おそくなりましたが)、メリークリスマス!

遅ればせながら(おくればせながら)、メリークリスマス!

What about the Chinese spelling "聖誕(祭)"?

At what instances do the Japanese use that word when talking about Christmas?


The meaning of the Kanji shows what Christmas is really about - a [holy figure's]聖 [birth] 誕.

It would be very nice if we could add Jesus, angels, star, born, stable, manger, sing and Christmas carols too.
