Christmas in European Languages

It’s not long until Christmas Day and we thought we would put together a map showing the word ‘Christmas’ around Europe in different languages.

It’s interesting to see how similar some of these words are and how language has adapted.

Have a think about making an early New Year’s resolution and learn a new language for 2015!

Are there any that surprise you, any that we’ve missed out?
