Happy Christmas 2010
Happy Christmas in Chinese
Teresa Yi Zhang kindly gave me this wish written in Chinese characters, something I had asked her for.
圣 means Holy, 诞 means Birth, and 快 乐 means rejoice or happiness.
So altogether : 圣诞快乐 means Holy Birth Happy, with the pronunciation being: Sheng Dan Kuai Le.
So the Greek icon below and this Chinese wish both illustrate the universality of what Christmas announces to all people: the Incarnation of God, a great mystery.
