In how many languages can you say MERRY CHRISTMAS? No Google Translate accepted! XD

I know how to say:

-Bon Nadal (my mother language, Catalan)

-Buon Natale (Italian)

-Eguberri on (Basque)

-Feliz Navidad (Spanish)

-Joyeux Noël (French)

-Feliz Natal (Portuguese, btw, is Bom Natal also correct?)

-Bon Nadal/Nadau (Occitan, I'm pretty sure it's like this)

I had never heard of this language. Looks like it's one of the many languages spoken in India, right?

That's correct. It's one of the 22 scheduled languages (official regional languages).

I see, got it! But there aren't only those 22 languages, right? Like there are also many other minority (or not) languages spoken in India that aren't officially recognized.

There are more than 700 languages spoken in the country, not all of which may have scripts. But most of them have less than 10,000 speakers. There are only 120 odd languages which have more speakers than this number and around 30 of these have more than a million speakers. The 22 officially recognised languages are used for all government communication in the respective states (along with English in most cases).
