For Merry Christmas Brazilians say

Feliz Natal

Season's Greetings would be loosely Boas Festas (Good Festivities)

And Happy New Year = Próspero Ano Novo

A common greeting at this time is:

Feliz Natal e Próspero Ano Novo

The following song (Fim de ano) is often sung at midnight at New Year's. Its authors are Chico Viola and David Nasser

Adeus Ano Velho,
Feliz Ano Novo,
que tudo se realize
no ano que vai nascer.
Muito dinheiro no bolso,
saúde para dar e vender

Para os solteiros, sorte no amor
Nenhuma esperança perdida
Para os casados nem uma briga
Paz e sossego na vida

That would translate -- literally -- something like this

Farewell, old year
Happy new year
may all your wishes
come true in the coming year
lots of money in the pocket
health to give away and to sell

To the single ones
Good luck in love
No hope lost
To the married ones
No dispute
Peace and quiet in life
