In this case, the \'a\' and the \'e\' that follows it form one letter, we used to have it in English but we no longer do. For examples, look at www.santas.net/howmerrychristmasissaid.htm and http://users.aol.com/WSCaswell/x-euro.htm to see it. I\'m sure that you can see the linguistic relationship here between the first word and English \"glad\" (Merry) and \"Yule\" (another English word for \"Christmas\") that is not used so much anymore.

agree  Sven Petersson: Glædelig Jul (with "æ")
3 mins
  -> Tack!

agree  xxxlone: Agree with Sven!
7 mins
  -> Mange tak! I don't have an 'ae' option on this particular computer which is why i gave two references for asker to look at. Thanks for the help and the 'agree'.

agree  Anna Blanck
25 mins
  -> Tack, thanks, gracias.

agree  Mette Kragholm: In cse of the missing "æ" the expression "God Jul" is also possible, although not as common or expressive in a greeting card.
32 mins
  -> Thanks, tak. Welcome to ProZ.

agree  Mads Grøftehauge: Are you using a laptop? Otherwise it's ALT+145 on the numeric keypad. Incidentally, 'God jul' is fine on it's own, but not in the combo "glædelig jul og godt nytår" (ALT+134)
1 hr
  -> Yes, i am (and i'm on the train). Thanks for the extra help, the info and the "agree".

agree  Eliza-Anna
1 hr
  -> Thanks, merci, tak.

agree  PCovs: Right on! Though I disagree with Mads on whether or not you can say "God Jul og Godt Nytår" - just a sidetrack. :-)
12 hrs
  -> Thanks, tak.

neutral  NetLynx: 'Glædelig jul' - no more, no less [I would allow 'Glædelig Jul', though incorrect Danish orthography.]
