Ulihelisdi = it to be happy
Atse = new
Udetiyvsv'i = it was a year
Udetiyvsv'i is the same word as "He, she, or it had a birthday," meaning in English, that it has been a year.
Ditsaliheligi! = You all be happy!

People who grew up speaking Cherokee say “Merry Christmas” several different ways. This is another phrase that cannot be translated exactly from English to Cherokee.
Some say Tsisa Udetiyisgv’I which means “It was Jesus’ birthday.”
