Assyrian Christmas Greeting!
When Tommy Mirza, an Assyrian from Australia who interviewed me for his website http://www.myoomta.com/interview/nineveh-dinha.html asked me to wish Assyrians a Merry Christmas in our native language on Fox 13's morning show and then post in on youtube so that he could see it, I never imagined that it would generate so many hits in just one week *over 9,000*! I also never thought I'd get a flood of emails from Assyrians across the globe, but I did. I got a tremendous amount of support, kinds words and thanks from so many Assyrians. The youtube greeting even connected me to a fellow Assyrian journalist that works for CNN International. Gotta love the internet, right?
I just want to say, as cheesy as it may sound, THANK YOU SO MUCH for the continued support. Wishing you a Merry Christmas in Assyrian is the least I can do for the community. I should be thanking you. Thank YOU!
In case you missed it, here's the youtube clip!
