Houska yolua — HOWS-kah YOH-lu-ah — Merry Christmas in Finnish
Example: "In Michigan's Upper Peninsula you'll hear 'Houska yolua' as often as the usual Christmas greeting in English" (the Finns, by the way, use one of the rare languages in which the first syllable is heavily accented — as opposed to, say, French, which usually accents the final syllable).
