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...

While not necessarily limited to the giáng sinh holiday, White con voi Gift Exchanges are được ưa chuộng at this time of năm for clubs, associations, small groups, churches and offices around the United States. It is often a thêm affordable (and, possibly, fun) alternative to buying presents for everyone in the group. But what is a White con voi Gift Exchange?

The history
The story - almost certainly apocryphal - goes like this: in pre-colonial India, the rajahs would give gifts to their vassals as tokens of their esteem. Chief among these was the elephant. The elephant...

I really think giáng sinh is a magic time of the year! Even though I am starting to grow up (I am sixteen), I always become a little child again when giáng sinh is near, and go playing in the snow, waiting for Santa (Dad) with my little,and big, cousin, baking, meeting near and dear and just enjoy the moment and life.
I mean, do bạn really do that in the same way any other time of the year? Because I dont think so...
And the giáng sinh music- wonderful! :)
I think people in general becomes nicer when Christmas, and for a season to have the power to make people nicer- that I call pure magic!!! :D

Santa's got a little friend,
his name is Dominick.
The cutest little donkey,
you never see him kick.
When Santa visits his paisans,
with Dominick he'll be.
Because the reindeer cannot
climb the hills of Italy.

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to say Merry Cristmas to all of bạn fanpoppers out there.

If bạn believe in god hoặc bạn don't, it is always a special ngày for families and Những người bạn to hiển thị how they really feel about one another, either this being thực phẩm fights, real fights hoặc praying for the less fortunate, spend it as a way that is special to you.

Living in Australia, i have always had sweaty, hot christmas'. giáng sinh morning spent with my mum and in the afternoon, it is spent with my dad. This is all that i have basically known, i am just grateful that i get to spend one of my most favourite days of the năm with my whole family.

But remember that giáng sinh is not just about the presents hoặc the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, Những người bạn and santa.

So spread the joy and tình yêu that this season brings, spread it to everyone that bạn know and maybe even to those that bạn don't. Have a great giáng sinh :)

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father giáng sinh and simply "Santa", is a figure with legendary, mythical, historical and folkloric origins who, in many western cultures, is đã đưa ý kiến to bring gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of giáng sinh Eve, December 24. The modern figure was derived from the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas, which, in turn, may have part of its basis in hagiographical tales concerning the historical figure of gift giver Saint Nicholas. A nearly identical story is attributed bởi Greek and Byzantine folklore to Basil of Caesarea....

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.

I tình yêu Christmas, it is one of my yêu thích holidays ever. Even though it was thêm exciting when I was a child hoặc even a teenager. But I grew up and my sister who is 7 years younger than me, she's 25, I don't see her as much, even on holidays as she lives with her boyfriend of a year. Plus her job as a VJ at our local radio station takes up a lot of her time. Then there is the fact that my nana on my mom's side always put on the best Christmases, giáng sinh was also her yêu thích holiday, but sadly she passed away 4 years ago, then with my Aunt and Uncle going to either New York to have Christmas...

Since I had done with my favourite giáng sinh films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed bởi famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah bởi George Frederick Handel

This oratorio premiered in Dublin, Ireland and it's the first oratorio to be performed in English. Which was unusual at that time.

2) Alexander's Feast bởi George Frederick Handel

Although this oratorio is link to Alexander the Great, it's âm nhạc sounds very giáng sinh oriented and it is highly recommend for both giáng sinh and Handel những người hâm mộ alike!

3) St. John's Passion bởi Johann Sebastian Bach

It's dramatic âm nhạc will not only celebrate...

If bạn want to wish "Merry Christmas" to someone in Greece, then bạn should say: Kala Hristouyienna.

If bạn want to wish "Happy New năm " to someone in Greece, then bạn should say: Kali Hronia.

For "Happy New năm Day" in Greek bạn should say "Kali Protohronia".

If your friend is called Manolis hoặc Hristos, his nameday is on December 25 (Christmas day). Wish him "Hronia Polla" (Many Happy Returns) for his nameday.

The same applies if your friend is called Vassilis, Yiannis hoặc Fotis. Vassilis nameday is on January 1, Fotis' nameday is on January 6, Yiannis' nameday is on January 7.

During giáng sinh holiday period, which lasts from December 24 until January 6, plus a couple of weeks past that, it is a custom in Greece to wish "Hronia Polla" to the people bạn meet. So, if bạn meet someone in the morning, the proper way to greet him hoặc her is: Kalimera, Hronia Polla! (Good morning, Many Happy Returns).
