Ah.  I saw somewhere someone write it as "Natale Christi hilare et faustum annum novum!" but didn't know my Latin.

Felix Nativitas (lit. ‘Happy Nativity’ and akin to the Spanish Feliz Navidad)

Or . . . one could read ‘Christmas’ as ‘Christ’s mass’ and translate ‘Merry Christmas’ as Felix Missa Christi.
