I will soon be out for the Christmas break. I wish you all a wonderful Christmas.
The folks over at Omniglot.com have provided a recording of the phrase in the title of this post. Click the triangle below if you want to learn to say “Merry Christmas” in Greek:
Thanks to Omniglot.com for the audio!
The pronunciation from Ominiglot.com was done using Modern Greek pronunciation. While there are several important differences between Modern Greek and the way the language was spoken in the Hellenistic Period (Koine), none of those differences impact the pronunciation of καλά Χριστούγεννα. Of course at the time of Jesus and Paul no one would have said καλά Χριστούγεννα since Christmas was not yet celebrated. When it did come to be celebrated, though, early Christians would have pronounced this phrase the same as it is pronounced today in Greece.
