Back when I was a kid watching natal 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 anda of your Grandma. Of course, we loved her and so did Santa.

But did anda 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 tampil us a Santa Claus surrounded oleh androgynous little elves and a matronly Mrs. Claus? I mean, it's cold up at the North Pole. Surely Santa isn't adverse...

Hi everyone!

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

If anda believe in god atau anda don't, it is always a special hari for families and friends to tampil how they really feel about one another, either this being food fights, real fights atau 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'. natal 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 tahun with my whole family.

But remember that natal is not just about the presents atau the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, friends and santa.

So spread the joy and cinta that this season brings, spread it to everyone that anda know and maybe even to those that anda don't. Have a great natal :)

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

Some of my fondest natal memories were spent in front a of televisi watching such classics as the animated Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer atau one of the myriad versions of Dickens' 'A natal Carol'.

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

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father natal and simply "Santa", is a figure with legendary, mythical, historical and folkloric origins who, in many western cultures, is berkata to bring gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of natal 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 oleh Greek and Byzantine folklore to Basil of Caesarea....

Since we're all still in natal 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 cinta the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical animasi style will make anda cinta 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 cinta Christmas, it is one of my favorit holidays ever. Even though it was lebih exciting when I was a child atau 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, natal was also her favorit 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 natal films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed oleh famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah oleh 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 oleh George Frederick Handel

Although this oratorio is link to Alexander the Great, it's musik sounds very natal oriented and it is highly recommend for both natal and Handel fan alike!

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

It's dramatic musik will not only celebrate...

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

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

For "Happy New tahun Day" in Greek anda should say "Kali Protohronia".

If your friend is called Manolis atau 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 atau Fotis. Vassilis nameday is on January 1, Fotis' nameday is on January 6, Yiannis' nameday is on January 7.

During natal 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 anda meet. So, if anda meet someone in the morning, the proper way to greet him atau her is: Kalimera, Hronia Polla! (Good morning, Many Happy Returns).

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 natal 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 selanjutnya morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

Epiphany in Greece is known as Theofania atau Fota. The first sanctification of the Epiphany (The Enlightenment) takes place in church on the eve of the holiday. Afterwards, the priest goes from house to house holding a menyeberang, salib and a basil branch. As he walks through each house, he uses the basil to sprinkle (bless) all the areas of the home.

An old custom in Crete , which is almost forgotten today, was the preparation of the fotokoliva (boiled wheat with peas) on the eve of Epiphany. The fotokoliva was eaten oleh the people, but they also fed it to their livestock, which was believed to insure good...
