I spoke with one of my many former professors about greetings a while ago (he was my Gaelic professor) and he told me something rather interesting: Gaelic (Irish) tends to invoke G!d at the beginning of most greetings, followed by Mary, then each Irish saint starting from Patrick then.... Anyway, the Irish also say "Cead mille failte", which translates to "One hundred thousand welcomes" (which I believe is about how many saints the Irish Catholics claim [I know. Shouldn't say that. ]) Anyway, cead mille failte has some "accent" marks (for correct spelling/pronunciation), but my computer is acting up on the international alphabet keyings.
Heh, heh, It gets worse than that...
