Ahh Christmas. The tree, the stockings, the mistletoe and - of course - the holiday ti vi programming.

Some of my fondest giáng sinh memories were spent in front a of ti vi watching such classics as the animated Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer hoặc one of the myriad versions of Dickens' 'A giáng sinh Carol'.

So without further ado, I am presenting bạn with my big, big danh sách of holiday specials. I've tried to categorize the danh sách into subsections to make it a little thêm bearable and consumable. The...

Back when I was a kid watching giáng sinh specials on TV, Mrs. Claus was invariably portrayed as a sweet but dowdy older woman of slightly plump stature. She could cook a mean pie and reminded bạn of your Grandma. Of course, we loved her and so did Santa.

But did bạn ever wonder what Mrs. Claus might have looked like when she was younger? I mean, I assume she must've be smokin' (natch).

So why is it that so many of the classic holiday programs hiển thị us a Santa Claus surrounded bởi androgynous little elves and a matronly Mrs. Claus? I mean, it's cold up at the North Pole. Surely Santa isn't adverse...

This is a reprint of a classic bài viết that ran in the now defunct Spy Magazine about 15 years cách đây hoặc so. This bài viết is all over the internets now, though few sites properly attribute the original source. In any event, here's the reprinted text to this holiday classic.

Consider the following:

1) No known species of reindeer can fly. But there are 300,000 species of living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are insects and germs, this does not COMPLETELY rule out flying reindeer which only Santa has ever seen.

2) There are 2 billion children (persons under 18) in the world....

Mistletoe, in older times, was believed to have protective properties and was hung to ward off evil spirits. Celts believed that mistletoe, a parasitic plant that grows on trees, had special powers that could heal diseases, make poisons harmless, protect against evil spells and bring fertility to childless women. For many years, Christian places of worship did not allow it inside because of its pagan associations. But nowadays it is mostly used as an excuse to steal a kiss.

The origin of our tradition of kissing under the mistletoe is Mất tích in the mists of antiquity. Some say it probably stemmed...

In Greece when we talk about the "holidays" we are referring to the holiday period of Christmas, New năm and Epiphany.
Traditionallythe giáng sinh holiday period lasts 12 days in Greece. There are many customs associated with the "twelve ngày of Christmas," some very old and others relatively recent, like the decorated cây and the turkey on the Christmas-day table.
Historically,in 354 A.D. it was arranged for the birth of Christ to be celebrated on December 25, the same ngày that they celebrated the birth of the ancient god Mithra, known as the "invincible sun god" and god of all solar deities...

Since we're all still in giáng sinh mood, here is my comparison for both the 1966 animated short with its live action film made in 2000.

1966 Animated Short

This animated short that started it all! I tình yêu the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical phim hoạt hình style will make bạn tình yêu this cartoon and Dr. Seuss, his artwork fascinates people even in today's generation, the theme song 'You're Mean One, Mr. Grinch!' has even been covered in the TV series, 'Glee' that I could not get it out of my head after listening to it recently.

'Tis the season to be jolly!
I have had to remind myself of this fact constantly in the past week for I have had probably the most stressful week of 2008. All I wanted was to be in readiness and organized for my favourite time of năm but things do not always go as planned.
I decide to do some trang chủ renovations and paint my house back in September, the house did not really need a revamping but I was bored and thought it was time for a change. Little did I imagine that only a few days before giáng sinh the house would still be looking like a hurricane had swept through it.
I decided to get rid of...

I wrote this short song, based upon "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". It has been effectively retitled "Santa Claus is bringing bạn down".
You're going to shout
You're going to cry
You're going to pout, and I'm telling bạn why
Sant Claus is bringing bạn down!
He knows when bạn are knocked out
He knows when you're in pain
He knows when to cú đấm hoặc not
And his wallops will drive bạn insane, woah!
Sant Claus is bring bạn down!
Yeah, Santa Claus is bring bạn down!
Yeah, Santa Claus is bringing bạn DOWN!

In Germany, today is the First Advent – meaning the first of the for Sundays before Christmas. It is often the last Sunday in November, but this year, it happens to be exactly on December first. Advent is here the time we spend in preparation for the giáng sinh celebrating, lighting one candle every Sunday.

The sixth of December is a very special day, Nicholas day. The prior evening, everyone in the house is cleaning their largest pair of shoes and putting it in front of the fireplace (or another special place). The tiếp theo morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

If you're looking for a festive look that doesn't scream "CHRISTMAS!", try out a sparkly sequinned dress! It's a được ưa chuộng look with all kinds of celebs.

Taylor Swift, Jordin Sparks, Beyonce, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Kristen Stewart have all shone in shiny dresses. It's a great look to wear to any holiday event bạn might have coming up (a party, a school dance, a girls' night, etc. etc.)

Here are some options we found from Delia's. This one is a light grey dress with a smattering of sparkles and a flouncy skirt. The một giây one only has sparkles on the hàng đầu, đầu trang and a cute bow at the waist. And the third option is an all-over sequins look!

If bạn don't feel comfortable wearing full-on sparkles, try accessorizing with something like glittery tights, a sparkly ring, hoặc shiny metallic nail polish.

Do bạn like this trendy look?

Santa Kitty,
I’ve really been an awfully good cat,
And that
Is not an easy thing for me,
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Kitty,
A ten-pound bag of cat food, too,
From you.
I’ve been an Angel all year,
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all
The thực phẩm I’ve missed.
Think of all the items on
My people’s grocery list.
They really have been
Mean to me.
It takes a lot of food
To feed a cat like me!

Santa Kitty,
Slip a sữa bowl under the tree
For me.
I’ll stay up for you, dear
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Kitty,
I need something to chase ’round...

I found this funny little poem in a book called "Live and Learn and pass it on," đọc it out of sheer bordom.

Here it is--
Stage one - When a boy belives in Santa Clause.

When a boy doesent belive in Santa Clause.

When a boy is Santa Clause.

When a boy looks like Santa Clause.


hmmm.......... This has to be longer so it can be an bài viết so here are the lyrics for "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas"

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas...

I really enjoy the giáng sinh season. I tình yêu the phim chiếu rạp that get played every year. I tình yêu the giáng sinh âm nhạc radio station. I tình yêu the lights. I tình yêu the snow. I tình yêu the togetherness. I tình yêu the Claymation. I tình yêu wrapping presents. I tình yêu unwrapping presents. I tình yêu making cards and presents for my Những người bạn and my teachers. I tình yêu going to the mall and finding the perfect gift. I tình yêu going shopping with my friends. I tình yêu the classroom giáng sinh parties that are against school rules. I tình yêu going to Petsmart with my mom to get vớ, thả, còn hàng stuffers for my cats. I tình yêu waking up early on Christmas...

Dear Santa, here's my giáng sinh list.
I hope you'll bring it all.
I've only asked for gifts my parents
can't find at the mall.

I'd like to have a UFO,
with aliens inside,
and maybe a Tyrannosaurus Rex
that I could ride.

A ninety-nine foot robot
is a present I could use.
I'll also need a time machine,
and rocket-powered shoes.

Please bring a gentle genie
who will grant my every wish,
and don't forget a wizard's wand,
and, yes, a talking fish.

Of course, I'll need a unicorn,
and won't bạn please provide
a dragon, and a castle
in the English countryside.

Of course, the weight of all these things
might cause your sleigh to crash.
If that's the case, dear Santa,
please feel free to just bring cash.

In 1984, a group of well-intentioned musicians got together to form the charity group Band Aid to raise money for famine in Ethiopia with their release of the super được ưa chuộng song, "Do They Know It's Christmas?" On the surface, to hear someone claim to "hate" such a song makes that person seem like a complete and total Grinch. How could bạn hate a song that raised money for famine victims, hoặc brought awareness to the plight in Ethiopia? Right?

So allow me to explain my frustration with the song. Most people tình yêu the song, for its warm message and altrusitic intentions. I myself even link on a...
