God Jul!

Merry Christmas, all!

This vintage postcard features the phrase God Jul!, which is how you say "Merry Christmas" in Swedish and Norwegian.

Keeping up a tradition I started last year, here is how you say "Merry Christmas" in a few other languages, according to Santa's Net:

Armenian: Shenoraavor Nor Dari yev Pari Gaghand
Cornish: Nadelik looan na looan blethen noweth
Frisian: Noflike Krystdagen en in protte Lok en Seine yn it Nije Jier!
Hungarian: Boldog Kar√°csonyt
Maori: Meri Kirihimete

And here's a closer look at the central illustration on this old postcard. Note that both the Swedish and American flags are at the top of the Christmas tree.
