How do you say “Merry Christmas”

Scandinavia and the Nordic countries have several languages. How do you say “Merry Christmas” in Swedish, Danish, Norwegian, Finnish, Sami, Icelandic, Faroese, and Greenlandic? Maybe it doesn’t really mean “Christmas” directly, but has earlier, pagan meaning.

Please share what you know of the happy greeting you say to people at this cozy time of year!

God Jul! 😉
