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

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

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

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

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

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

1. Westminster Abbey (London, England)

2. Cologne Cathedral (Cologne, Germany)

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

 A White Grinch???

Since we're all still in krisimasi 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 upendo the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical uhuishaji style will make wewe upendo 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.

In 1984, a group of well-intentioned musicians got together to form the charity group Band Aid to raise money for famine in Ethiopia with their release of the super maarufu song, "Do They Know It's Christmas?" On the surface, to hear someone claim to "hate" such a song makes that person seem like a complete and total Grinch. How could wewe hate a song that raised money for famine victims, au brought awareness to the plight in Ethiopia? Right?

So allow me to explain my frustration with the song. Most people upendo the song, for its warm message and altrusitic intentions. I myself even link on a...

This is a reprint of a classic makala that ran in the now defunct Spy Magazine about 15 years zamani au so. This makala is all over the internets now, though few sites properly attribute the original source. In any event, here's the reprinted text to this holiday classic.

Consider the following:

1) No known species of reindeer can fly. But there are 300,000 species of living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are insects and germs, this does not COMPLETELY rule out flying reindeer which only Santa has ever seen.

2) There are 2 billion children (persons under 18) in the world....

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 krisimasi 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 inayofuata morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

If you're looking for a festive look that doesn't scream "CHRISTMAS!", try out a sparkly sequinned dress! It's a maarufu look with all kinds of celebs.

Taylor Swift, Jordin Sparks, Beyonce, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Kristen Stewart have all shone in shiny dresses. It's a great look to wear to any holiday event wewe might have coming up (a party, a school dance, a girls' night, etc. etc.)

Here are some options we found from Delia's. This one is a light grey dress with a smattering of sparkles and a flouncy skirt. The sekunde one only has sparkles on the juu and a cute bow at the waist. And the third option is an all-over sequins look!

If wewe don't feel comfortable wearing full-on sparkles, try accessorizing with something like glittery tights, a sparkly ring, au shiny metallic nail polish.

Do wewe like this trendy look?
Not a shabiki of your traditional krisimasi music? Here's a orodha of hard krisimasi songs from all over the metal spectrum! If wewe have any zaidi suggestions feel free to drop them in the comments.

• "Rudolph" was actually created kwa Robert May for Montgomery Ward in the late 1930's as a holiday promotion. The song was written later kwa Johnny Marks, and recorded kwa Gene Autry in 1949; it promptly sold about 2 million copies.

Mistletoe, in older times, was believed to have protective properties and was hung to ward off evil spirits. Celts believed that mistletoe, a parasitic plant that grows on trees, had special powers that could heal diseases, make poisons harmless, protect against evil spells and bring fertility to childless women. For many years, Christian places of worship did not allow it inside because of its pagan associations. But nowadays it is mostly used as an excuse to steal a kiss.

The origin of our tradition of kissing under the mistletoe is Lost in the mists of antiquity. Some say it probably stemmed...

In Greece when we talk about the "holidays" we are referring to the holiday period of Christmas, New mwaka and Epiphany.
Traditionallythe krisimasi holiday period lasts 12 days in Greece. There are many customs associated with the "twelve siku of Christmas," some very old and others relatively recent, like the decorated mti and the turkey on the Christmas-day table.
Historically,in 354 A.D. it was arranged for the birth of Christ to be celebrated on December 25, the same siku that they celebrated the birth of the ancient god Mithra, known as the "invincible sun god" and god of all solar deities...

'Tis the season to be jolly!
I have had to remind myself of this fact constantly in the past week for I have had probably the most stressful week of 2008. All I wanted was to be in readiness and organized for my favourite time of mwaka but things do not always go as planned.
I decide to do some nyumbani renovations and paint my house back in September, the house did not really need a revamping but I was bored and thought it was time for a change. Little did I imagine that only a few days before krisimasi the house would still be looking like a hurricane had swept through it.
I decided to get rid of...

I wrote this short song, based upon "Santa Claus is Coming to Town". It has been effectively retitled "Santa Claus is bringing wewe down".
You're going to shout
You're going to cry
You're going to pout, and I'm telling wewe why
Sant Claus is bringing wewe down!
He knows when wewe are knocked out
He knows when you're in pain
He knows when to ngumi, punch au not
And his wallops will drive wewe insane, woah!
Sant Claus is bring wewe down!
Yeah, Santa Claus is bring wewe down!
Yeah, Santa Claus is bringing wewe DOWN!

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

Think of all
The chakula 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 maziwa 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...

I found this funny little poem in a book called "Live and Learn and pass it on," kusoma it out of sheer bordom.

Here it is--
Stage one - When a boy belives in Santa Clause.

When a boy doesent belive in Santa Clause.

When a boy is Santa Clause.

When a boy looks like Santa Clause.


hmmm.......... This has to be longer so it can be an makala so here are the lyrics for "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas"

I want a hippopotamus for Christmas
Only a hippopotamus will do
Don't want a doll, no dinky Tinker Toy
I want a hippopotamus to play with and enjoy
