Frohe weihnachten, und eine gutes neues jahre!
God jul och gott nytt r
Joyeux nol et bonne anne!
Feliz Navidad
and I think that's all I know.
there's the scots one too, blythe yule and a good hogmannay or something.

I could guess some norwegian though, it's probalby something like  kaempegodtjul og en akkuratt kaempebra nyren!

Always annoyed me a bit that we translate the phonetic writing differently here in sweden (although I'd call it more precise)
that letter there for example is commonly called Zj here.

I think the book and film were called "Doktor Zjivagho" here, really good film by the way, and a great soundtrack, got it off a friend's dad for free on vinyl.

Maybe I should have myself a Lean christmas?

I'm Slovene, I friggin know about , č and 's and even đ's _

Yes I forgot you can also use , but usually when translating Russian you use "Zh".

ж = Zh

pronounced like in Dr Zhivargo

Yeah, that clears everything up.

ж is sometimes nicknamed "the bug" because the sound you make with it sounds like a fly buzzing, like a combination of g and j.

If you still don't get it, then there's no hope for you :joebiden:

Rotaku

Named as such because russia is in a state of decay.

Zdravstvuite, my name is Vladimir Borisov.

I'm a 27 year old American Rusophile (soviet fan for you capitalists). I Work and Labor on my assigned camp, and spend my days drinking Vodka and playing superior Soviet games. (S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Cryostasis)

I train with my Avtomat Kalashnikova every day, this superior weapon can Pierce through steel because it is used over fifty years, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my Avtomat license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.

I speak Russian fluently, both Drunk and the Sober dialect, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about Russian history and their vodka code, which I follow 100%

When I get my Russian visa, I am moving to Moskva to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become a laborer for Zavod Kalashnikova or a vodka drinker!

I own several soviet uniforms, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to Russia, so I can fit in easier. I drink with my elders and seniors and speak Russian as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.

Wish me luck in Russia!

Anton
