That might be impossible, since klingons just don't know about christmas.

I've heard things like "enjoy the human cold-period-celebration"
   {Human poH bIr lop yItIv}

But this could be many things; and besides, it's not cold everywhere.

The question "What do you want for Christmas?" will certainly become a command "identify the gift you want": 
   {nob DaneHbogh yIngu'}
But "for christmas" cannot be translated like that, because the gift is not *for* christmas, it is *for* you!
