    I found a Christmas book on the catalogue! I don’t know if I’m meant to say the title or not, so I will just in case I do have to: it’s Horrid Henry’s Christmas by Francesca Simon. My 9 year old sister loves these books!

    At Tuam library I listened to some Maori Christmas carollers, I’m quite sure that Merry Christmas in Maori is:

    Meri Kirihimete.

    You can also spell and say Merry Christmas in German as “Froehliche Weihnachten!” There are lots of ways to say it!
