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

Some of my fondest クリスマス memories were spent in front a of テレビ watching such classics as the animated Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer または one of the myriad versions of Dickens' 'A クリスマス Carol'.

So without further ado, I am presenting あなた with my big, big 一覧 of holiday specials. I've tried to categorize the 一覧 into subsections to make it a little もっと見る bearable and consumable. The...

Back when I was a kid watching クリスマス 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 あなた of your Grandma. Of course, we loved her and so did Santa.

But did あなた 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 表示する us a Santa Claus surrounded によって androgynous little elves and a matronly Mrs. Claus? I mean, it's cold up at the North Pole. Surely Santa isn't adverse...

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

Five years 前 (I was nine) I was sitting in my aunts car on クリスマス Eve, and we were talking about a tv 表示する in Holland called 'all あなた need is love'
I don't know if あなた know, または have the 表示する in America but the tv 表示する 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...

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 クリスマス 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 次 morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

Hi everyone!

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

If あなた believe in god または あなた don't, it is always a special 日 for families and フレンズ to 表示する how they really feel about one another, either this being 食 fights, real fights または 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'. クリスマス 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 クリスマス is not just about the presents または the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, フレンズ and santa.

So spread the joy and 愛 that this season brings, spread it to everyone that あなた know and maybe even to those that あなた don't. Have a great クリスマス :)

Okay,first of all,this isn't what u might think.And あなた might've played it before.I'm gonna get to the point.
Dirty クリスマス is a game あなた and your family can play on Christmas.Everyone brings a mystery gift(it can be funny または normal).You draw numbers out of a bowl,cup,or hat,something like that.The person with the lowest number goes first.TRhey pick a present,and unwrap it.That is what they keep.BUT,someone with a higher number can steal it,then the person it was stolen from gets another present.Youkeep going until everyone has a present.
My family plays it in different groups;Adults,teens,and little kids.Above is the way the teens and adults play.
The kids play in a different way.They get in a circle,and go around grabbing presents until they are all gone.No one can steal anything.
It's a really fun game,and I say あなた and your family should try it.
 Quite a pleasant tune to listen to.

Since I had done with my favourite クリスマス films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed によって famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah によって 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 によって George Frederick Handel

Although this oratorio is link to Alexander the Great, it's 音楽 sounds very クリスマス oriented and it is highly recommend for both クリスマス and Handel ファン alike!

3) St. John's Passion によって Johann Sebastian Bach

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

Hi guys, I know that this 記事 is pretty early, but I thought that I write about why I 愛 クリスマス 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 クリスマス Eve, we would have a night service accompanied によって ディナー prior to the service. A few days earlier, the youths would decorate the church with the birth of ジーザス and setting up the クリスマス 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 テレビ commercials urge あなた 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...

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 クリスマス holiday, White 象 Gift Exchanges are 人気 at this time of 年 for clubs, associations, small groups, churches and offices around the United States. It is often a もっと見る affordable (and, possibly, fun) alternative to buying presents for everyone in the group. But what is a White 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 クリスマス 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 クリスマス 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 あなた really do that in the same way any other time of the year? Because I dont think so...
And the クリスマス 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

Santa's got a little friend,

Because the reindeer cannot

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father クリスマス and simply "Santa", is a figure with legendary, mythical, historical and folkloric origins who, in many western cultures, is 発言しました to bring gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of クリスマス 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 によって Greek and Byzantine folklore to Basil of Caesarea....

Since we're all still in クリスマス mood, here is my comparison for both the 1966 animated short with its live action film made in 2000.

1966 Animated Short
