Well spotted! Scottish Gaelic it is.

("Nollaig" being related to "Noël", and "Chridheil" literally means "Hearty".)

Hope everyone had a wonderful time!

Thanks, DNA. And may the same blessings be with you and yours.

When I looked at the words at first, I thought it was something similar to your signature "Grondo grondo to all zarking happy froods" and had a good chuckle, but then I took a closer look at it, noted the lettering order, and Gaelic immediately jumped out at me as its origin. Not that I speak Gaelic, even though by descent, I am German/Irish. I've always had a bit of linguist in me...not necessarily in understanding lots of languages, but simply by being able to visibly or audibly identify them because of phrases, or, as stated before phonetic or letter placement, especially if written out in English characters. I know that Gaelic has its own character set.

Ugh, well, my last few days have been spent battling a cold (something I haven't had in years). Christmas Eve, I had to perform whilst on the downside of said cold. Needless to say, it left me feeling beat up today, so I've spent most of Christmas laid up in bed. (Actually, I've spent just about every day except Christmas Eve laid up in bed...yeah, it was a doozy.) If it hadn't been for the cold, I would've been performing tonight.

I hope everyone had a Merry Happy Freaky Kwazy ChristmaHannuFestiviKwanzaacus!
