    Hi there, There is no Chrismas greetings in Somalia - it is 100% Muslim there. But there are other ways of passing greetings like the new year's - it is SANNAD WANAAGSAN, happy new year. HJ

    Hashis, I don't think that any country is 100% Muslim and I would refrain from such political statements. There are still some Bantu-speaking people living
    in Somalia, and considering that some Bantu are indeed Christians, they can
    also say "Merry Christmas". As the previous posting shows, it exists.
