Proper Chanukah Greeting

I felt a bit foolish the other day, because I had no idea as to how I should wish two of my friends, both practicing Orthodox Jews, a good Chanuka. What are the traditional greetings used in the Jewish community, in Hebrew, Yiddish, or other languages?

The customary greeting in Yiddish is “A fraylichen Chanukah” and in Hebrew “Chanukah Sameach” both of which translate to Happy Chanukah.
