English translation:I/We wish you a merry christmas.
Explanation:
The old "J" sometimes resembles the modern "T", and "AE" is one of the three letters that the scandinavian alphabet does not share with the english. The term "Glaedelig jul" wishes the reciever a merry christmas, and does not say that he is having a merry christmas.
