-Overheard at a party last night-

"First, to my French friends: I wish you a "Joyeux Noël"!
- ...
- ...
- ...
- And finally, to my Spanish friends: "Feliz Navidad"!
- Oh, and to you, puzzlers..."

I couldn't hear the rest, but I manage to get what was destined for us, puzzlers. It was an image containing this rebus:

But what does it say?

What about

We wish you a merry Christmas


"Oui Oui chew Americ Ritz mas"


That's Noddy, and in French, as clued by the French text above, is Oui Oui; Gum is for chewing; Americ(as); Ritz crackers; plus in Spanish is mas, again, clued by the text above.
Thanks to @Sconibulus to getting most of it first.

  • $\begingroup$ So, it would be "and to you, puzzlers, and you, a merry Christmas"? No! And it is not an elf... $\endgroup$ – IAmInPLS Dec 20 '16 at 16:35
  • $\begingroup$ elf or not, it's still a hand, though :P $\endgroup$ – Matt Dec 20 '16 at 16:37
  • $\begingroup$ with the last edit about the elf must be it :D $\endgroup$ – lois6b Dec 20 '16 at 16:45
  • $\begingroup$ The boy is "Noddy" en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noddy_%28character%29 $\endgroup$ – LeppyR64 Dec 20 '16 at 16:48
  • $\begingroup$ @LeppyR64 so is said in the "because" part of his answer $\endgroup$ – lois6b Dec 20 '16 at 16:48

I think it's

Wish you a merry christmas


Elf(? this one is least likely) Chew(gum) Americ(Americas-AS) Ritz plus(possible spanish mas, but if you say it fast enough it works either way)


elfchewamericritzplus, which said fast enough sounds like "wish you a Merry Christmas"

  • $\begingroup$ Well, it's almost that, but your explanation is not convicing (an elf?). $\endgroup$ – IAmInPLS Dec 20 '16 at 16:07
  • $\begingroup$ I guess the "boy" is with the hand up meaning "I" $\endgroup$ – lois6b Dec 20 '16 at 16:09
