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

But did आप 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 दिखाना us a Santa Claus surrounded द्वारा 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 टेलीविज़न programming.

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

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

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 लोकप्रिय 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 आप hate a song that raised money for famine victims, या brought awareness to the plight in Ethiopia? Right?

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

This is a reprint of a classic लेख that ran in the now defunct Spy Magazine about 15 years पूर्व या so. This लेख 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 क्रिस्मस 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 अगला morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

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

It also means it's time for another सूची of क्रिस्मस video goodies.

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

So without further ado...

The Essentials

If you're looking for a festive look that doesn't scream "CHRISTMAS!", try out a sparkly sequinned dress! It's a लोकप्रिय 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 आप 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 सेकंड one only has sparkles on the चोटी, शीर्ष and a cute bow at the waist. And the third option is an all-over sequins look!

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

Do आप like this trendy look?
A little late on this one but here are a few 'carols' I found funny. Not all of these are सुरक्षित for work. If आप have any और feel free to drop them in the टिप्पणियाँ section.

Since we're all still in क्रिस्मस 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 प्यार the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical एनीमेशन style will make आप प्यार 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.

• The first commercial क्रिस्मस cards were commissioned in London, in 1843, द्वारा Sir Henry Cole, with illustration द्वारा John Callcott Horsley. President Dwight D. Eisenhower issued the first official White House card in 1953.

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


• क्रिस्मस became an official national holiday in the USA on June 28, 1870.

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 चुंबन under the mistletoe is लॉस्ट 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 साल and Epiphany.
Traditionallythe क्रिस्मस holiday period lasts 12 days in Greece. There are many customs associated with the "twelve दिन of Christmas," some very old and others relatively recent, like the decorated पेड़ 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 दिन 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 साल but things do not always go as planned.
I decide to do some घर 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 क्रिस्मस 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 आप down".
You're going to shout
You're going to cry
You're going to pout, and I'm telling आप why
Sant Claus is bringing आप down!
He knows when आप are knocked out
He knows when you're in pain
He knows when to पंच या not
And his wallops will drive आप insane, woah!
Sant Claus is bring आप down!
Yeah, Santa Claus is bring आप down!
Yeah, Santa Claus is bringing आप 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 एंजल all year,
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all
The खाना 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 दूध 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," पढ़ना 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 लेख 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

I really enjoy the क्रिस्मस season. I प्यार the फिल्में that get played every year. I प्यार the क्रिस्मस संगीत radio station. I प्यार the lights. I प्यार the snow. I प्यार the togetherness. I प्यार the Claymation. I प्यार wrapping presents. I प्यार unwrapping presents. I प्यार making cards and presents for my फ्रेंड्स and my teachers. I प्यार going to the mall and finding the perfect gift. I प्यार going shopping with my friends. I प्यार the classroom क्रिस्मस parties that are against school rules. I प्यार going to Petsmart with my mom to get जुराब, मोजा stuffers for my cats. I प्यार waking up early on Christmas...

Dear Santa, here's my क्रिस्मस list.
I hope you'll bring it all.
I've only asked for gifts my parents
can't find at the mall.

I'd like to have a UFO,
with aliens inside,
and maybe a Tyrannosaurus Rex
that I could ride.

A ninety-nine foot robot
is a present I could use.
I'll also need a time machine,
and rocket-powered shoes.

Please bring a gentle genie
who will grant my every wish,
and don't forget a wizard's wand,
and, yes, a talking fish.

Of course, I'll need a unicorn,
and won't आप please provide
a dragon, and a castle
in the English countryside.

Of course, the weight of all these things
might cause your sleigh to crash.
If that's the case, dear Santa,
please feel free to just bring cash.
