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

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

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...

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...

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

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

For "Happy New 年 Day" in Greek 你 should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

During 圣诞节 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 你 meet. So, if 你 meet someone in the morning, the proper way to greet him 或者 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 圣诞节 films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed 由 famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah 由 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 由 George Frederick Handel

Although this oratorio is link to Alexander the Great, it's 音乐 sounds very 圣诞节 oriented and it is highly recommend for both 圣诞节 and Handel 粉丝 alike!

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

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

In Ukraine, the 圣诞节 holidays begin since 2nd of January. Prior to 圣诞节 in the Ukraine, people try to complete almost all important work. As usual, the hostess thoroughly cleans the house, covers the new tablecloth, tries to make new clothes before holiday. On January 4th Ukrainians prepare everything for the future festive 圣诞节 dinner. According to tradition, there should be 12 courses for Svyatvecher (Christmas). All they have to be lean.

Traditionally, 12 courses are prepared because it is believed that during the 年 the 月 run over the earth for 12 times. Therefore,...

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....

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 圣诞节 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 下一个 morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

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

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.

kids who dont get to hear any Hanukkah songs--here we go...

Put on your yarmulka, here comes Hanukkah
Its so much fun-akkah to celebrate Hanukkah,

Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights,
Instead of one 日 of presents, we have eight crazy nights.

But when you're the only kid in town without a Christmas...

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 天使 all year,
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all
The 食物 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 牛奶 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...

Hi guys, I would like to write some of my favourite 圣诞节 Activities here as I am feeling the 圣诞节 blue already!

1) Carolling

I absolutely 爱情 to sing, despite that I'm a very shy person, I 爱情 to do it for the charity and pleasure of cheering people up!

2) Shopping

I had always 爱情 this, and 2 years 以前 I bought a t-shirt from Esprit for my 钢琴 teacher and for myself. I'm very blessed to have it as of today!

3) Church 圣诞节 Services

To be honest, I have an annoying habit to wake up late lately to go to Church and I hope that I do not have to do it especially on 圣诞节 day. Please pray for me! I 爱情 to see all of my new friends.

4) 圣诞节 Lights

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, 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....
