    Hi there :wave:

    The lovely Mrs. and I need to know how to say "Christ is Born" in Greek and Russian (or- I suppose Slavonic.) The first person to answer gets all 63 of my blessings :)

    Thanks,
    Rdr. Moses and Anonykat

    Serbs would say:

    Празник Божји, Христос се роди
    (Praznik Božji, Hristos se rodi)
    Greeting: The Holiday of God, Christ is born.


    Ваистину се роди
    (Vaistinu se rodi).
    Answer: In truth He is born.

    modern greek uses an older type of the verb so it goes: Χριστός γεννάται

    especially when using it as a greeting.

    Hi Moses,

    In Arabic:
    Al-Maseehu wulida famajjedouh!
    (Christ is born, glorify Him!)

    In Greek:
    Christos Gennatai ! Doxasate!
    (Christ is born! Give glory!)

    or

    Christos etexthi! Alithos etexthi!
    (Christ has been born! He has truly been born!)

    In Russian:
    Kristos rozhdaetsya! Slav'te ego!
    (Christ is born! He is, truly!)

    In Serbian:
    Hristos se Rodi! Voistinu se Rodi!
    (Christ is born! Indeed He is Born!)

    In Slavonic:
    Christos razhdayetsya! Slavite yoho!
    (Christ is born! Glorify Him!)

    Many years,

    Neil
