A very merry Christmas to you, Chuck! The Russian greeting makes me laugh - the "happy new year" part is "s novym godom." When we had construction workers come in to Embassy Moscow from the 'States, they were taught survival Russian, at best. Many of those guys changed the "happy new year" greeting to "frozen scrotum!" Russians who heard it thought they were just trying their best and getting kiiiinda close. They had no idea. And, considering Moscow weather at the start of a year, it's rather appropriate. :)
