Merry Christmas in Egyptian

Post by Scottishtourist »

Can anyone tell me the correct vocabulary to wish my Egyptian friends a "Merry Christmas?" I have "kulsana wintaa tayyib"=Compliments of the season", but not sure if this is correct and apologise if I am making "donkey" of myself !!Hope to blazes that you can help with correct spelling and translations before I send any texts and maybe say something that I shouldn't!!Kind Regards.

In Jerusalem it used to be "milad mageed" so I guess that would be so in Egypt too, although Palestinian Arabic differs slightly from Egyptian.

Also the Copts in egypt celebrate their Christmas later by several days than other Christians which can be atad confusing. :?
I don't have a plan......so nothing can go wrong!
