The "chance of feasts" and "prying to God" -- Christmas cards Iraqi style

I get all sorts of interesting communications from Iraqis in our province, especially during the holiday season. Some of them provide a linguistic twist that provides an extra element of amusement. Take for instance the Christmas e-card below. It is the thought, of course, that counts.

Taking the chance of feasts I want to say

MERRY CHRISTMAS &

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009

Hoping that the coming year bring the best to all of you,

Prying to God to bless you and your families .
