This is no way intended to offend anybody, but when you're stuck in a snow storm five days before Christmas and you haven't seen a customer in four hours, these sort of things strike you as much funnier than they are.
I am working until the end of January at a store which sells Christmas trees, lights and decorations from November until January. The majority of our stuff comes from China, but is labelled in English,with the exception of some of our lights, which are in English and Spanish.
We got in a shipment of really pretty European glass ornaments and the little boxes one case contained said, in English, then German, "Christmas Ornament - Christbaumschmuck." It was the last word that set us into giggles.
What holiday words do you know in one language make you laugh in another one?
Happy Holidays to all!
