Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas.

English: Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas.

French: Joyeuses Fêtes. Joyeux Noël.

It's that time of year, and your pilots and in-charge flight attendants will often make announcements wishing passengers a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. If they do, we should be able to translate it into French as well.

Joyeux, Joyeuse=Happy, Merry, Joyous

Fêtes (f,pl)=Holidays

Noël (m)=Christmas

Joyeuses Fêtes=Happy Holidays

Joyeux Noël=Merry Christmas

As a side note, "fête" can also mean "party" in French. In Canadian French, "fête" also means "birthday" and you can wish someone a "happy birthday" by saying "bonne fête". (Bon, Bonne=Good)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

Flight Attendant Souvenirs. Souvenirs d’un agent de bord. Morocco, December 2019. Maroc, décembre 2019. The main square in the old town (Medina) of Marrakesh is called Jemaa el Fna and it is always bustling with activity. Snake charmers. Monkeys. Henna. Food and drink stalls. Restaurants. Rooftop patios. Endless souvenir shops with all kinds of things to buy. Be wary though. Of all the Medinas I visited this trip, I must say the one here had the most aggressive shopkeepers, doing whatever they can to get you to eat at their place or buy at their shop.
