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

But did Ты 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 Показать us a Santa Claus surrounded by 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 Ты fanpoppers out there.

If Ты believe in god или Ты don't, it is always a special день for families and Друзья to Показать how they really feel about one another, either this being Еда fights, real fights или 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'. Рождество 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 год with my whole family.

But remember that Рождество is not just about the presents или the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, Друзья and santa.

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

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

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

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

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

Since we're all still in Рождество 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 Любовь the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical Анимация style will make Ты Любовь 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 Любовь Christmas, it is one of my Избранное holidays ever. Even though it was еще exciting when I was a child или 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, Рождество was also her Избранное holiday, but sadly she passed away 4 years ago, then with my Aunt and Uncle going to either New York to have Christmas...

Major Lazer - Рождество Trees

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

1) The Messiah by 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 by George Frederick Handel

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

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

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

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

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

For "Happy New год Day" in Greek Ты should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

During Рождество 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 Ты meet. So, if Ты meet someone in the morning, the proper way to greet him или 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 Рождество 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 Далее morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

Epiphany in Greece is known as Theofania или 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 пересекать, крест 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 by the people, but they also fed it to their livestock, which was believed to insure good...
