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

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

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 everyone!

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

If toi believe in god ou toi don't, it is always a special jour for families and Friends to montrer how they really feel about one another, either this being nourriture fights, real fights ou 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'. Christmas 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 an with my whole family.

But remember that christmas is not just about the presents ou the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, Friends and santa.

So spread the joy and l’amour that this season brings, spread it to everyone that toi know and maybe even to those that toi don't. Have a great christmas :)

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

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

For "Happy New an Day" in Greek toi should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

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

 Quite a pleasant tune to listen to.
Quite a pleasant tune to listen to.
Since I had done with my favourite Christmas films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed par famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah par 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 par George Frederick Handel

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

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

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

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

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...

I really think christmas 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 Christmas 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 toi really do that in the same way any other time of the year? Because I dont think so...
And the christmas 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

I
The shepherds went their hasty way,
And found the lowly stable-shed
Where the Virgin-mother lay:
And now they checked their eager tread,
For to the Babe that at her bosom clung,
A mother song the Virgin-mother sung.


II
They told her how a glorious light,
Streaming from a heavenly throng
Around them shone, suspending night!
While sweeter than a mother's song,
Blest anges hearlded the Saviour's birth
Glory to God on high! and Peace on Earth.

Santa Kitty,
I’ve really been an awfully good cat,
And that
Is not an easy thing for me,
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Kitty,
A ten-pound bag of cat food, too,
From you.
I’ve been an Angel all year,
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all
The nourriture I’ve missed.
Think of all the items on
My people’s grocery list.
They really have been
Mean to me.
It takes a lot of food
To feed a cat like me!

Santa Kitty,
Slip a lait bowl under the tree
For me.
I’ll stay up for you, dear
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Kitty,
I need something to chase ’round...
