Hi guys, since Christmas is coming, what I'm going to write are some are the perfect Christmas films that toi will enjoy this coming festive season!

1) Beauty and the Beast: The Il était une fois Christmas

So, this film is considered my least favourite Disney sequel (or shall I say midquel?). The songs are amazing and Christmas oriented, especially the song 'As Long As There's Christmas'. The lyrics is very meaningful that I felt in l’amour with it!

2) The Sound of Music

Okay, I definitely know that 'My Favourite Things' is technically associated with Christmas. But, this movie is the best! I will definitely...

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

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

Hi guys, I know that this article is pretty early, but I thought that I write about why I l’amour Christmas and how I celebrate it here in Malaysia.

How?

Every year, my church (I'm not baptized yet, mind you) would organised a special occasion. But the common one is definitely caroling, the location is normally depends because we need to get the approval from the management team themselves.
On Christmas Eve, we would have a night service accompanied par dîner prior to the service. A few days earlier, the youths would decorate the church with the birth of Jésus and setting up the Christmas tree....

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

Since we're all still in Christmas 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 l’amour the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical animation style will make toi l’amour 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.

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 populaire 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 toi hate a song that raised money for famine victims, ou brought awareness to the plight in Ethiopia? Right?

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

This is a reprint of a classic article that ran in the now defunct Spy Magazine about 15 years il y a ou so. This article 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....

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 Christmas 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 suivant 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 populaire 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 toi 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 seconde one only has sparkles on the haut, retour au début and a cute bow at the waist. And the third option is an all-over sequins look!

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

Do toi like this trendy look?

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 s’embrasser under the mistletoe is Lost in the mists of antiquity. Some say it probably stemmed...
