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

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

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

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

Hi guys, I know that this 文章 is pretty early, but I thought that I write about why I 爱情 圣诞节 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 圣诞节 Eve, we would have a night service accompanied 由 晚餐 prior to the service. A few days earlier, the youths would decorate the church with the birth of 耶稣 and setting up the 圣诞节 tree....

 Is the word "Xmas" a result of the commercialization of Christmas?
Is the word "Xmas" a result of the commercialization of Christmas?
Every holiday season, newspapers, malls and 电视 commercials urge 你 to take advantage of "Xmas sales and specials." The word "Xmas" is easier to use in advertisements, and as a result, it's become associated with the commercialization of Christmas. But some Christians take offense to
the word "Xmas" and have called for the abolishment of this truncated version of the word "Christmas." So why is it so controversial, and where did it originate?


For some, Xmas is a dreaded four-letter word that reemerges every holiday season. The phrase is literally and symbolically distasteful, according...

For all the people who want a happy 文章 about Christmas, I'm sorry to let 你 down, and maybe I'm a little pessimistic but now I'm getting older this is how I think about Christmas:

Five years 以前 (I was nine) I was sitting in my aunts car on 圣诞节 Eve, and we were talking about a tv 显示 in Holland called 'all 你 need is love'
I don't know if 你 know, 或者 have the 显示 in America but the tv 显示 is about people who get unexpected visits from people that they love,and then, for one night, they can forget all their problems and enjoy Chrismas Eve together. I thought that it was a silly...

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 天使 hearlded the Saviour's birth
Glory to God on high! and Peace on Earth.

While not necessarily limited to the 圣诞节 holiday, White 象, 大象 Gift Exchanges are 流行的 at this time of 年 for clubs, associations, small groups, churches and offices around the United States. It is often a 更多 affordable (and, possibly, fun) alternative to buying presents for everyone in the group. But what is a White 象, 大象 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...

I really think 圣诞节 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 圣诞节 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 你 really do that in the same way any other time of the year? Because I dont think so...
And the 圣诞节 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

The cutest little donkey,
you never see him kick.
When Santa visits his paisans,
with Dominick he'll be.
Because the reindeer cannot

Hi everyone!

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

If 你 believe in god 或者 你 don't, it is always a special 日 for families and 老友记 to 显示 how they really feel about one another, either this being 食物 fights, real fights 或者 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'. 圣诞节 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 年 with my whole family.

But remember that 圣诞节 is not just about the presents 或者 the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, 老友记 and santa.

So spread the joy and 爱情 that this season brings, spread it to everyone that 你 know and maybe even to those that 你 don't. Have a great 圣诞节 :)

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

Since we're all still in 圣诞节 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 爱情 the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical 动画片 style will make 你 爱情 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 爱情 Christmas, it is one of my 最喜爱的 holidays ever. Even though it was 更多 exciting when I was a child 或者 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, 圣诞节 was also her 最喜爱的 holiday, but sadly she passed away 4 years ago, then with my Aunt and Uncle going to either New York to have Christmas...

Hi guys, have 你 ever sung carols at a famous cathedrals 或者 churches at your native countries? Here are the perfect holy sites to sing.

1. Westminster Abbey (London, England)

The abbey was site of the 2011 Royal Wedding, I 爱情 the atmosphere and the church. It gives 你 all a feel of Christmas, don't 你 think?

2. Cologne Cathedral (Cologne, Germany)

This is the first cathedral outside of the UK, and for the same reasons as Westminster Abbey.

3. St. Stephen's Basilica (Budapest, Hungary)

Although I have been to Budapest, I had never step inside this beautiful Basilica before, it also has the...

I 爱情 taking 照片 with my Nikon DSLR Camera, and I would go down to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to snap 照片 of 圣诞节 lights of I'm lucky enough!

Hi guys, since 圣诞节 will be coming here, I will be 写作 down some of my favourite 圣诞节 songs may it be Carols, from 圣诞节 films 或者 from other artists who performed famous 圣诞节 carols.

As Long As There's Christmas

This song is taken from Disney's midquel, Beauty and the Beast: The 着魔 Christmas. Belle sang this while decorating the 树 and it was sung 由 Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack, I absolutely adore the lyrics because it's very symbolic especially about 圣诞节 day!

The First Noel

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