I amor waking up early on Christmas...

Dear Santa, here's my navidad 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 tu 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.

navidad is a wonderful time of the year, all the presents, decorations, etc. Remember, though, navidad can also be hectic and stressful. Here's just a few tips on how to survive the navidad season.
1. Telling your mother that she has enough ornaments only gives her an excuse to buy more.
2. If tu are dragged to a neighbor's house for a navidad party, don't drink the ponche de huevo if tu plan to stay sober. Don't be like my uncle. That "spicy, different taste" is called rum.
3. If your grandmother is cooking navidad dinner, and she has a terrible memory, don't count on her to take out the roast...

I got this from the H & H Nursery newletter.

Fresh holiday greens such as wreaths and garlands have a definite life span, but with the following tips tu can keep them looking good so tu can enjoy their wonderful scent and beauty throughout the holiday season.

If tu aren't hanging o mounting your greens right away, lay them outside on the ground (best side up) in a cool shady location until tu are ready to use them. Try to avoid getting the greenery wet.

Sunlight, heat and wind are the worst enemies for holiday greenery, so keep that in mind when hanging them up. Outdoors, wreaths will...

 Make my wish come true All I want for navidad is tu ♥
Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas is you ♥
All I Want for navidad is You
Mariah Carey

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the navidad tree
I just want tu for my own
More than tu could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for navidad is you

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don't care about the presents
Underneath the navidad tree

I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on navidad day

I just want tu for my own
More than tu could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want...

Epiphany in Greece is known as Theofania o 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 cruzar, cruz 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 por the people, but they also fed it to their livestock, which was believed to insure good...

 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 televisión commercials urge tu 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...

Vasilopita is the Greek New Year's cake. Vasilopita is associated with Saint Basil's día on January 1 in Greece.

On New Year's día families cut the Vasilopita to bless the house and bring good luck for the new year.

While not necessarily limited to the navidad holiday, White elefante Gift Exchanges are popular at this time of año for clubs, associations, small groups, churches and offices around the United States. It is often a más affordable (and, possibly, fun) alternative to buying presents for everyone in the group. But what is a White elefante 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...

Santa's got a little friend,

The cutest little donkey,

with Dominick he'll be.
Because the reindeer cannot

I'm sure tu know that classic navidad story. The one about a man named Scrooge and that fatefull navidad Eve that changed his life. I must admit, looking out into the world, if the Ghosts of navidad Past, Present, and Yet To Come have found themselves, like so many, unemployed. I feel like we need them now más than ever.

Every navidad it seems the same and it truely saddens me. I hear reports on the infamous "Black Friday" of people being run over as well as fighting to get that last discounted item. People loosing their patience altogether and taking it out on those who are just...

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

Five years hace (I was nine) I was sitting in my aunts car on navidad Eve, and we were talking about a tv mostrar in Holland called 'all tu need is love'
I don't know if tu know, o have the mostrar in America but the tv mostrar 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...

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

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

For "Happy New año Day" in Greek tu should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

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

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

I've always preferred the term navidad in opposed to Xmas, it looks better when it's written in cards o a part of navidad decorations, and what's an Xmas anyway? I know that it's some type of abbreviation for the word navidad but it doesn't look right and it sounds worse if tu try saying it, navidad has become so commercialized over the years it seems as though many of us have lost our navidad cheer and the meaning of navidad isn't what it used to be, however this is my first navidad on fanpop and it's great to have a spot dedicated to this festive season, I am the youngest...
