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...

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...

Эй, guys so this is just some fun lil humor! i found this joke and thought it was cute! i think the women and especially the wives will agree!

After being away on business for a week before Christmas, Tom thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift.

"How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50.

"That's a bit much," сказал(-а) Tom, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30.

"Thats still quite a bit," Tom groused.

Growing disgusted, the clerk brought out a tiny $15 bottle.

Tom grew agitated, "What I mean," he said, "is I'd like to see something real cheap."

So the clerk handed him a mirror.

I've always preferred the term Рождество in opposed to Xmas, it looks better when it's written in cards или a part of Рождество decorations, and what's an Xmas anyway? I know that it's some type of abbreviation for the word Рождество but it doesn't look right and it sounds worse if Ты try saying it, Рождество has become so commercialized over the years it seems as though many of us have Остаться в живых our Рождество cheer and the meaning of Рождество isn't what it used to be, however this is my first Рождество on Fanpop and it's great to have a spot dedicated to this festive season, I am the youngest...

The First Noel

The tune is very pleasant to listen to and it tells us about the 3 Wise Men receiving...

While not necessarily limited to the Рождество holiday, White слон Gift Exchanges are Популярное at this time of год for clubs, associations, small groups, churches and offices around the United States. It is often a еще affordable (and, possibly, fun) alternative to buying presents for everyone in the group. But what is a White слон 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...

By this time of year, many people are running out of gift ideas. Well, if Ты have a gardener (or a potential gardener) among your Друзья and family, we have a few ideas for you!

You can always buy a plant for your gardener. But that's too easy--let's be a little еще creative.

If Ты know a fellow gardener who would like Еда plants but just can't resist those beautiful Цветы and decorative plants, plan a decorative Еда garden for them! Many vegetables and herbs have lovely Цветы или foliage. Ornamental kale, for instance, is often grown simply as an ornamental but it is both pretty and...

 Quite a pleasant tune to listen to.
Quite a pleasant tune to listen to.
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...

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....

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 :)

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...
