Ian asked: "what's the Hebrew for Merry Christmas?"
Most Hebrew speakers don't say it often <g>, but it is HaG  ha-MoLaD.
Small bit of jocularity:
The only Jewish boy in a small town asked his father what to say when his
teacher asked all the students to tell the class what they had done for
Christmas.  The father replied.  "Tell her that every Christmas eve, just
after Daddy closes the only jewelry store in town, our family gathers
together, totals up all the sales receipts, holds hands, and sings What A
Friend We Have in Jesus."
