OK, that's weird....

A while back roseblessing said to me, "Shub Naya Baras," and later complained that I didn't ask what it meant. So today, having little to do at work and feeling a bit sleepy and so needing something to do to keep me awake, I did a quick Google search for it. Turns out it is the equivalent of "Merry Christmas" in Hindi. Cool!

What's weird is that many of the sites I found list similar sayings in other languages and the one that predominately precedes Hindi is Hebrew. Now, why would one need to say "Merry Christmas" in Hebrew? (Which is, apparently, "Mo'adim Lesimkha. Chena tova.")
