No, really, this isn't two posts in one day. This is tomorrow's post, posted early. See the difference?
So, there I was, looking up Christmas on the internet, and found this site that lists how to say "Merry Christmas" in a number of different languages. How handy, huh, in the event you're writing a Christmas novel set in, say, Samoa (La Maunia Le Kilisimasi Ma Le Tausaga Fou), and you need a character to say "Merry Christmas" in the language native to the land.
And, surely, someday, it will come in handy to be able to say "Merry Christmas" in Papiamento (Bon Pasco)---but, um, gee. Where is Papiamento spoken? Also, where is Rhetian (Bellas festas da nadal e bun onn) spoken?
No, turn off your Snark-o-Detectors. I'm not being snarky here. Not about Christmas. I'll snark about many things, but never Christmas. Snarking about Christmas is rude. It's like stealing a kid's candy cane from him right after he's struggled to peel that obnoxious plastic wrapping off of it, and has the treat halfway to his mouth.
Now I have a mission. To find the countries where Papiamento and Rhetian are spoken. And Sami, Urdu, Pushto, Occitan, Manx, Lausitzian, Hausa, Faeroese...
