Don't follow >>4, he's basically saying "Chinese All Die". The correct greeting in Bahasa Malaysia is:

Selamat Hari Natal
or Selamat Hari Krismas

Scottish English. Hogmanay is the Scottish equivalent of New Year: it is the celebration on the 31st of December, followed by Ne'erday, the 1st of January. There are different traditions for it in different areas: around here, it is traditional to 'first foot' (verb) close friends and relatives. This is traditionally only for talk, dark-haired men: it involves being the first person to enter the house after the bells (have sounded twelve times, indicating the New Year has started). The first footer is supposed to bring a symbolic gift with them, usually a lump of coal, or perhaps a bottle of whiskey. There are also all-night street parties in the major cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Dundee etc.

Oh, and the song "Auld lang syne" was created in Scotland.
