CRYPTIC WISHES: Linksmų Kalėdų
A big Hanukah hug to BSD reader Jeremy who sent in these beautiful presents for Colby Klaus, including "Empires of the Word: A Language History of the World". It wasn't on my Amazon Wishlist but I spent the afternoon devouring the first chapter and couldn't be happier with Jeremy's choice.
I think I may have even teased out the more enigmatic message of the two Jeremy attached to his gift: "Chag urim sameach!" (easy enough: "Happy Hanukah!" in Hebrew) and the more cryptic "Linksmu Kaledu linkejimai!". With a little bit of research (thank you Google Translate) I landed on "Merry Christmas Wishes" in Lithuanian.
And to you Jeremy:
Grazzi ħafna. Tmien bews vaganzi mill Colby.
