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

But did 당신 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 show us a Santa Claus surrounded 의해 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 텔레비전 programming.

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

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

Hi guys, I know that this 기사 is pretty early, but I thought that I write about why I 사랑 크리스마스 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 크리스마스 Eve, we would have a night service accompanied 의해 공식 만찬, 저녁 식사 prior to the service. A few days earlier, the youths would decorate the church with the birth of 예수님 and setting up the 크리스마스 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 텔레비전 commercials urge 당신 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 기사 about Christmas, I'm sorry to let 당신 down, and maybe I'm a little pessimistic but now I'm getting older this is how I think about Christmas:

Five years 이전 (I was nine) I was sitting in my aunts car on 크리스마스 Eve, and we were talking about a tv show in Holland called 'all 당신 need is love'
I don't know if 당신 know, 또는 have the show in America but the tv show 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 천사 hearlded the Saviour's birth
Glory to God on high! and Peace on Earth.

While not necessarily limited to the 크리스마스 holiday, White 코끼리 Gift Exchanges are 인기 at this time of 년 for clubs, associations, small groups, churches and offices around the United States. It is often a 더 많이 affordable (and, possibly, fun) alternative to buying presents for everyone in the group. But what is a White 코끼리 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 크리스마스 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 크리스마스 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 당신 really do that in the same way any other time of the year? Because I dont think so...
And the 크리스마스 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,

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 당신 fanpoppers out there.

If 당신 believe in god 또는 당신 don't, it is always a special 일 for families and 프렌즈 to show how they really feel about one another, either this being 음식 fights, real fights 또는 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'. 크리스마스 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 년 with my whole family.

But remember that 크리스마스 is not just about the presents 또는 the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, 프렌즈 and santa.

So spread the joy and 사랑 that this season brings, spread it to everyone that 당신 know and maybe even to those that 당신 don't. Have a great 크리스마스 :)

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

It also means it's time for another list of 크리스마스 video goodies.

Since we're all still in 크리스마스 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 사랑 the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical 애니메이션 style will make 당신 사랑 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 사랑 Christmas, it is one of my 가장 좋아하는 holidays ever. Even though it was 더 많이 exciting when I was a child 또는 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, 크리스마스 was also her 가장 좋아하는 holiday, but sadly she passed away 4 years ago, then with my Aunt and Uncle going to either New York to have Christmas...
