Very interesting idea of teaching us this wishes in so many languages.
Just one remark:
Romanian also say: La multi ani
Greek also say: Chronia Pola
I was thinking to make such a list for Merry Christmas, but I only know it for a few languages.
Should we try together?
English: Merry Christmas
German: Frohe Weihnachten
Spanish: Feliz Navidad
Italian: Buon Natale
Greek: Kala Christugena
French: Joyeux Noel
Romanian: Craciun fericit
Please add your language!
Best wishes to everybody!

In response to Ruxi's question:
"Noel'iniz kutlu olsun"
The new year's greeting above needs to be modified, by the way. It's "Yeni Yiliniz Kutlu Olsun." (If you want to use proper Turkish spelling, only the first "i" should have a dot; the rest go without. This doesn't apply to the Christmas greeting.)
| Merry Xmas & BÚÉK || Dec 20, 2004 |
Best wishes to all of you & BÚÉK (abbreviation in Hungarian of "I wish you a happy new year")!
Békés, fordításmentes Karácsonyt, és boldog, feladatokkal és örömökkel teli újévet kívánok Mindannyiotoknak!

| Hindi's version is incorrect || Dec 20, 2004 |
It must be 'naye varsha ki shubhakamnayein' in Hindi
In Nepali, 'nava varshako shubhakaamnana'
In Sanskrit- ' Navavarshasya shubhkamna'
