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...

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...

Hi everyone!

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

If आप believe in god या आप don't, it is always a special दिन for families and फ्रेंड्स to दिखाना how they really feel about one another, either this being खाना fights, real fights या 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'. क्रिस्मस 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 साल with my whole family.

But remember that क्रिस्मस is not just about the presents या the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, फ्रेंड्स and santa.

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

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

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...

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.

I प्यार Christmas, it is one of my प्रिय holidays ever. Even though it was और exciting when I was a child या 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, क्रिस्मस was also her प्रिय 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 आप ever sung carols at a famous cathedrals या churches at your native countries? Here are the perfect holy sites to sing.

1. Westminster Abbey (London, England)

The abbey was site of the 2011 Royal Wedding, I प्यार the atmosphere and the church. It gives आप all a feel of Christmas, don't आप think?

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

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

1) Carolling

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

2) Shopping

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

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

4) क्रिस्मस Lights

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

Believe!

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

As Long As There's Christmas

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

The First Noel

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

*someone nods*

Well, around after Thanksgiving, I have an ear for क्रिस्मस संगीत of any kind surprisingly. Maybe it's the holiday vibe? Let's cut the shit and get to it!

Major Lazer - क्रिस्मस Trees

I just found this lot too long पूर्व today. A good reggae song with holiday vibes. Good to hear a holiday song from Diplo's Mad Decent. I wish Spinnin could do the same.

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

1) The Messiah द्वारा 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 द्वारा George Frederick Handel

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

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

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

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

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

For "Happy New साल Day" in Greek आप should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

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

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...

Epiphany in Greece is known as Theofania या Fota. The first sanctification of the Epiphany (The Enlightenment) takes place in church on the eve of the holiday. Afterwards, the priest goes from house to house holding a पार करना, क्रॉस and a basil branch. As he walks through each house, he uses the basil to sprinkle (bless) all the areas of the home.

An old custom in Crete , which is almost forgotten today, was the preparation of the fotokoliva (boiled wheat with peas) on the eve of Epiphany. The fotokoliva was eaten द्वारा the people, but they also fed it to their livestock, which was believed to insure good...

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.
