Happy or Merry (Word of Your Choice)

Here are some variations in several languages for expressing greetings for the holidays. Guess the language of each. Some are easy; some might not be recognized by a native speaker of the language since I had to transliterate into the English alphabet. That makes some of them pretty darned hard to figure out.

Here's the complete list of phrases. I'll fill in the languages on or after the 25th. I want everybody to have a shot at wishing others happiness and joy in many different languages. All of us, of course, speaking the human language of love. Well, most of us anyway.
  1. Glædelig Jul og Godt Nytår! 
  2. Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año Nuevo! 
  3. Schéi Feierdeeg an e Gudde Neit Joer!
  4. Eguberri eta Urteberri On!
  5. Meli Hollidei Mich Saehae Bog Manh-i Bad-euseyo!
