Sinterklaas or Christmas is coming

Today the 5th of December it is "pakjesavond", the night prior to the birthday of Sinterklaas when traditionally presents are given sometimes with a rhyme or a suprise. Christmas is therefore not that far away and it is therefore a time of how to do things in line with the Christmas spirit. It is a time about Christmas spirit and Christmas gifts.

Last year we started to collaborate on Christmas wishes and it was good fun. It is so funny to see a text in alphabetic script and not have a clue as to how it is pronounced.. "Përshumvjet Krishtlindjen dhe Gëzuar Vitin e Ri". Last year we were as ambitious as this year; we would love more people to translate and say: "Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!" in their language..

We hope and expect that the first tangible results of all the effort that has gone into Ultimate Wiktionary will be our Christmas gift.. In the mean time we will also do some more work on our Christmas glossary.. Have a look and see how you can make the glossary yours as well :)

Thanks,
GerardM
