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

But did tu 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 mostrar us a Santa Claus surrounded por 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, I know that this articulo is pretty early, but I thought that I write about why I amor navidad and how I celebrate it here in Malaysia.


Every year, my church (I'm not baptized yet, mind you) would organised a special occasion. But the common one is definitely caroling, the location is normally depends because we need to get the approval from the management team themselves.
On navidad Eve, we would have a night service accompanied por cena prior to the service. A few days earlier, the youths would decorate the church with the birth of jesús and setting up the navidad tree....

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

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

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 navidad 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 siguiente morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

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.
It is traditional to bake a coin into the Vasilopita (St. Basil's cake). The one who receives the coin is considered to be especially blessed for the year. A piece of cake is sliced for each member of the family and any visitors present at the time. Slices are also cut for various other people o groups, depending on local and family tradition. They may include St. Basil and other...

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).

The First Noel

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

Since we're all still in navidad 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 amor the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical animación style will make tu amor 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.

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...

Hi everyone!

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

If tu believe in god o tu don't, it is always a special día for families and friends to mostrar how they really feel about one another, either this being comida fights, real fights o 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'. navidad 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 año with my whole family.

But remember that navidad is not just about the presents o the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, friends and santa.

So spread the joy and amor that this season brings, spread it to everyone that tu know and maybe even to those that tu don't. Have a great navidad :)
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 popular 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 tu hate a song that raised money for famine victims, o brought awareness to the plight in Ethiopia? Right?

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

Though similar to Russia's Baboushka, Italy's La Befana is a gift bringer with a style all her own. This is her sad and poignant story...

To those who would see her from the road she appeared to be nothing más than a lonely old woman who lived alone. But the lines on her old face were drawn from years of tragedy. The lines told the story of losing her husband and infant child to a sweeping disease, leaving her a widow and a childless mother.

Inded she did live alone as an old woman. She had very little. But what she did have was precious to her. She kept these small treasures locked up in a...

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...

Kalikantzaroi, o the Greek navidad Sprites, are small blackish and hairy creatures, with long arms and tail, who reside in the bowels of the earth.
Kalikantzaroi are nasty

With a big saw, they compete to cut down the huge wooden stake which holds the earth in place. But the column is very thick and the sawing seems to go on forever.

Right before Christmas, however, Kalikantzaroi almost accomplish their mission and the column seems ready to fall. Overjoyed por their almost successful effort, but also fearful that the earth will topple over on their heads, they rush to the parte superior, arriba to bother and annoy...
