christmas frenzy

In Japan, Christmas is a couple's holiday. Christmas cakes and romantic dinners. Apparently Christmas Eve is including in the festivities, so all restaurants are expected to be packed on those two days. I'm guessing that it'll be the restaurants with nice ambience that will be packed, but there will probably be some overflow into the regular places. It's probably a good day to stay home.

Hey there, how do you say "Merry Christmas in Japanese?

A good question! It's メリークリスマス, which is merely "Merry Christmas" converted into Japanese syllables. So pronouncing it would be like saying "merii ku-ri-su-ma-su." Where "su" is pronounced like a short "sue."
