'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 سال but things do not always go as planned.
I decide to do some ہوم 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 Christmas 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 آپ down".
You're going to shout
You're going to cry
You're going to pout, and I'm telling آپ why
Sant Claus is bringing آپ down!
He knows when آپ are knocked out
He knows when you're in pain
He knows when to مککا, عجیب الخلقت یا not
And his wallops will drive آپ insane, woah!
Sant Claus is bring آپ down!
Yeah, Santa Claus is bring آپ down!
Yeah, Santa Claus is bringing آپ DOWN!

I wrote this other, slightly longer song, based upon "Frosty the Snowman" and effectively retitled "Frosty...

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 angel all year,
Santa Kitty,
So scurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all
The food 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 دودھ 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," reading 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 مضمون 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 want a hippopotamus for Christmas...

I really enjoy the Christmas season. I love the فلمیں that get played every year. I love the Christmas موسیقی radio station. I love the lights. I love the snow. I love the togetherness. I love the Claymation. I love wrapping presents. I love unwrapping presents. I love making cards and presents for my دوستوں and my teachers. I love going to the mall and finding the perfect gift. I love going shopping with my friends. I love the classroom Christmas parties that are against school rules. I love going to Petsmart with my mom to get ذخیرہ stuffers for my cats. I love waking up early on Christmas...

Dear Santa, here's my Christmas 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 آپ 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.

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, all the presents, decorations, etc. Remember, though, Christmas can also be hectic and stressful. Here's just a few tips on how to survive the Christmas season.
1. Telling your mother that she has enough ornaments only gives her an excuse to buy more.
2. If آپ are dragged to a neighbor's house for a Christmas party, don't drink the eggnog, ایگنوگ if آپ plan to stay sober. Don't be like my uncle. That "spicy, different taste" is called rum.
3. If your grandmother is cooking Christmas 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 آپ can keep them looking good so آپ can enjoy their wonderful scent and beauty throughout the holiday season.

If آپ aren't hanging یا mounting your greens right away, lay them outside on the ground (best side up) in a cool shady location until آپ 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 Christmas is آپ ♥
Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas is you ♥
All I Want for Christmas 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 Christmas tree
I just want آپ for my own
More than آپ could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas 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 Christmas tree

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

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

Epiphany in Greece is known as Theofania یا 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 پار, صلیب 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 سے طرف کی 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 ویژن ٹیلی commercials urge آپ 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 دن on January 1 in Greece.

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

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

Every Christmas 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 مضمون about Christmas, I'm sorry to let آپ down, and maybe I'm a little pessimistic but now I'm getting older this is how I think about Christmas:

Five years پہلے (I was nine) I was sitting in my aunts car on Christmas Eve, and we were talking about a tv دکھائیں in Holland called 'all آپ need is love'
I don't know if آپ know, یا have the دکھائیں in America but the tv دکھائیں 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 آپ want to wish "Merry Christmas" to someone in Greece, then آپ should say: Kala Hristouyienna.

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

For "Happy New سال Day" in Greek آپ should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

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