My maternal grandparents were from Sweden -

God Jul!

Although my grandmother (Mormor) was pretty well Americanized, we kept some Swedish customs. Straw decorations for the tree and house such as the Julbuk (Christmas goat, with origins back to the Viking days) and of course the Tomten with his little red hat - he is the elf who watches the farm at night, keeping the chickens safe from the Fox. Glogg is a potent hot spicey wine and vodka drink that will knock you for a loop! Christmas decorations are kept out until Little Christmas, Epiphany, which is Jan. 6th. Oh, I can't forget the Christmas cookies, such as the spritzen, buttery cookies made into "s" shapes and circles.

In Portuguese (Brazilian):

Feliz Natal e um Próspero Ano Novo!

Which is literally Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year, which is usually the way it's said when they are together. If you just want to say Happy New Year, then it's:

Feliz Ano Novo!

In Filipino (Tagalog)
Maligayang Pasko at Manigong Bagong Taon

I'm sure like every other culture during the holidays, Filipinos tend to have way too much food, and even more desserts!

Suzy my DH is sweedish and just rambled something off to me that I am not even going to try and type LOL. His mother gave me these red wooden candle sticks once that she got in sweden, I will have to take a picture to share.

Lina my dad was Portuguese but because of the hard times when he was growing up he did not live with his family so did not speak much of his own language, I have learned a little but always love hearing and learning more.

Lina - Are you from Brazil? My SIL is Brazilian. They just moved back to Brazil. My BIL is going back to school for his master's degree in at University of Sao Paulo (or Sao Paulo University I'm not sure which). It sure will be an adjustment for my brother-in-law and my nephew. They've visited often but living there will be much different for them. He is my DH's brother.

My neice (my brother's daughter) will be spending a year there. She is going down to do mission work. She's leaving at the end of January. She'll be in Sao Paulo too. So we're glad she'll have someone she knows down there. My brother's not so keen on her bing there for a year but she's 23 so not much he can do about it. We sure will miss her though.

My family is Portuguese. We're from the Azores, St. Michael's. I've never been but my brother and his family have. Someday I'll go.

Do you know if you can easily bring a dog in and out of Brazil? We're hoping to go down sometime this year and I'd really like to bring Izzy.
