I wish you a happy/merry Christmas.
I wish you 'Happy/Merry Christmas'.

Is the above correct in both Br and AmE?

Many thanks.

Yes, more or less.

We say "(I wish you) a merry Christmas and a happy new year."

and also, "Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!"

but you can more or less ring the changes.
