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...

While not necessarily limited to the krisimasi holiday, White tembo Gift Exchanges are maarufu at this time of mwaka for clubs, associations, small groups, churches and offices around the United States. It is often a zaidi affordable (and, possibly, fun) alternative to buying presents for everyone in the group. But what is a White tembo 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 krisimasi 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 krisimasi 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 wewe really do that in the same way any other time of the year? Because I dont think so...
And the krisimasi 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,
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 wewe fanpoppers out there.

If wewe believe in god au wewe don't, it is always a special siku for families and Marafiki to onyesha how they really feel about one another, either this being chakula fights, real fights au 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'. krisimasi 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 mwaka with my whole family.

But remember that krisimasi is not just about the presents au the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, Marafiki and santa.

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

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

Another Holiday season is upon us and wewe know what that means: break out the egg nog, light up the tree, put up the stockings, take out a sekunde mortgage for the credit card bill and moto up The Carpenter's krisimasi album (turn it up to 11, will you?).

It also means it's time for another orodha of krisimasi video goodies.

So kick back and get ready to enjoy another batch of holiday fun. Oh, and in case wewe missed last year's orodha be sure to check out link

So without further ado...

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.

I upendo Christmas, it is one of my inayopendelewa holidays ever. Even though it was zaidi exciting when I was a child au 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, krisimasi was also her inayopendelewa holiday, but sadly she passed away 4 years ago, then with my Aunt and Uncle going to either New York to have Christmas...

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.

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

1) Carolling

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

2) Shopping

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

3) Church krisimasi 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 krisimasi day. Please pray for me! I upendo to see all of my new friends.

4) krisimasi Lights

I upendo taking picha with my Nikon DSLR Camera, and I would go down to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to snap picha of krisimasi lights of I'm lucky enough!


Do wewe believe in Christmas? Well, I do!

Hi guys, since krisimasi will be coming here, I will be uandishi down some of my favourite krisimasi songs may it be Carols, from krisimasi films au from other artists who performed famous krisimasi carols.

As Long As There's Christmas

This song is taken from Disney's midquel, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas. Belle sang this while decorating the mti and it was sung kwa Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack, I absolutely adore the lyrics because it's very symbolic especially about krisimasi day!

The First Noel

The tune is very pleasant to listen to and it tells us about the 3 Wise Men receiving...

Major Lazer - krisimasi Trees

Since I had done with my favourite krisimasi films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed kwa famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah kwa 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 kwa George Frederick Handel

Although this oratorio is link to Alexander the Great, it's muziki sounds very krisimasi oriented and it is highly recommend for both krisimasi and Handel mashabiki alike!

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

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

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

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

For "Happy New mwaka Day" in Greek wewe should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

During krisimasi 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 wewe meet. So, if wewe meet someone in the morning, the proper way to greet him au her is: Kalimera, Hronia Polla! (Good morning, Many Happy Returns).
