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...

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

Dominick the Donkey

Hey! Chingedy ching,

It's Dominick the donkey.

The Italian 圣诞节 donkey.

(la la la-la la-la la-ee-oh-da)

Santa's got a little friend,
his name is Dominick.
The cutest little donkey,
you never see him kick.
When Santa visits his paisans,
with Dominick he'll be.
Because the reindeer cannot
climb the hills of Italy.

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...

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!

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...

Major Lazer - 圣诞节 Trees

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...

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).

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...
