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).

In Ukraine, the Christmas holidays begin since 2nd of January. Prior to Christmas in the Ukraine, people try to complete almost all important work. As usual, the hostess thoroughly cleans the house, covers the new tablecloth, tries to make new clothes before holiday. On January 4th Ukrainians prepare everything for the future festive Christmas dinner. According to tradition, there should be 12 courses for Svyatvecher (Christmas). All they have to be lean.

Traditionally, 12 courses are prepared because it is believed that during the سال the ماہ run over the earth for 12 times. Therefore,...

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

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

Okay,first of all,this isn't what u might think.And آپ might've played it before.I'm gonna get to the point.
Dirty Christmas is a game آپ and your family can play on Christmas.Everyone brings a mystery gift(it can be funny یا normal).You draw numbers out of a bowl,cup,or hat,something like that.The person with the lowest number goes first.TRhey pick a present,and unwrap it.That is what they keep.BUT,someone with a higher number can steal it,then the person it was stolen from gets another present.Youkeep going until everyone has a present.
My family plays it in different groups;Adults,teens,and little kids.Above is the way the teens and adults play.
The kids play in a different way.They get in a circle,and go around grabbing presents until they are all gone.No one can steal anything.
It's a really fun game,and I say آپ and your family should try it.

The first thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
Is finding a Christmas tree

The سیکنڈ thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me:
Rigging up the lights
And finding a Christmas tree

The third thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
Hangovers
Rigging up the lights
And finding a Christmas tree

The fourth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me

Sending Christmas cards
Hangovers
Rigging up the lights
And finding a Christmas tree

The fifth thing at Christmas that's such a pain to me
Five months of bills!
Sending Christmas cards

Rigging up the lights
And finding a Christmas tree

Kalikantzaroi, یا the Greek Christmas 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 سے طرف کی their almost successful effort, but also fearful that the earth will topple over on their heads, they rush to the سب, سب سے اوپر to bother and annoy...

سے طرف کی this time of year, many people are running out of gift ideas. Well, if آپ have a gardener (or a potential gardener) among your دوستوں and family, we have a few ideas for you!

You can always buy a plant for your gardener. But that's too easy--let's be a little مزید creative.

If آپ know a fellow gardener who would like food plants but just can't resist those beautiful flowers and decorative plants, plan a decorative food garden for them! Many vegetables and herbs have lovely flowers یا foliage. Ornamental kale, for instance, is often grown simply as an ornamental but it is both pretty and...

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 مزید 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...

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

1) Carolling

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

2) Shopping

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

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

4) Christmas Lights

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

Believe!

Do آپ believe in Christmas? Well, I do!
 Oh Night Divine!!!
Oh Night Divine!!!
 Shopping, who's with me?

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

As Long As There's Christmas

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

The First Noel

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

Just for shits and giggles.
Hello, Christmas پرستار club fans! Coke here. And today/tonight I'm gonna tell آپ my Christmas songs I like. آپ know how much I like edm, house, dubstep, jungleterror, the like, right?

*someone nods*

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

Major Lazer - Christmas Trees

I just found this lot too long پہلے 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.

Gianni Marino - Carol Of The Bells

I heard this in...

I love Christmas, it is one of my پسندیدہ holidays ever. Even though it was مزید exciting when I was a child یا 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, Christmas was also her پسندیدہ holiday, but sadly she passed away 4 years ago, then with my Aunt and Uncle going to either New York to have Christmas...

 Quite a pleasant tune to listen to.
Quite a pleasant tune to listen to.
Since I had done with my favourite Christmas films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed سے طرف کی famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah سے طرف کی 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 سے طرف کی George Frederick Handel

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

3) St. John's Passion سے طرف کی Johann Sebastian Bach

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

Humanity seems to have forgotten,
The true meaning of Christmas.
They think its only presents,
And they think it's Christmas trees, too.
Don't آپ remember what it's all about?
Have آپ forgotten the true meaning?
Christmas is مزید than just presents.
In fact, it's not about presents at all.
It's about things آپ can't لپیٹ, لفاف کریں in a box,
And tie with a bow.
Peace on Earth and good will toward men,
That's what Christmas is all about!
Have آپ forgotten all about this?
Why is it only this time of year,
That we have to be nice to each other,
That we have to be kind?
Why can't it be all سال 'round?
Why can't it be every day?
Why does it have to be just this day?
With December just beginning I thought it'd be cool to compile a فہرست of great Christmas songs all in one place. From the classics and pop to metal and rock to country and hip hop; all genres included. If anyone has any song suggestions that didn't make it on this فہرست feel free to drop 'em in the comments.

Within Temptation - Gothic Christmas
Aly & AJ - Greatest Time Of Year
Aly & AJ - Let It Snow
Aly & AJ - Silent Night
Aly & AJ - Rockin Around The Christmas Tree
Aly & AJ - We Wish آپ A Merry Christmas
Aly & AJ - Joy To The World
Aly & AJ - God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen...

I really think christmas is a magic time of the year! Even though I am starting to grow up (I am sixteen), I always become a little child again when Christmas is near, and go playing in the snow, waiting for Santa (Dad) with my little,and big, cousin, baking, meeting near and dear and just enjoy the moment and life.
I mean, do آپ really do that in the same way any other time of the year? Because I dont think so...
And the christmas music- wonderful! :)
I think people in general becomes nicer when Christmas, and for a season to have the power to make people nicer- that I call pure magic!!! :D

I
The shepherds went their hasty way,
And found the lowly stable-shed
Where the Virgin-mother lay:
And now they checked their eager tread,
For to the Babe that at her bosom clung,
A mother song the Virgin-mother sung.


II
They told her how a glorious light,
Streaming from a heavenly throng
Around them shone, suspending night!
While sweeter than a mother's song,
Blest angels hearlded the Saviour's birth
Glory to God on high! and Peace on Earth.

"Christmas This Year"
By: TobyMac

As fall rides off in the sunset
I sweep the snow from my doorstep
I just can't help but stop and grin
It's like I'm ten years old again
And everywhere I go I can feel it

Some say it moves like a spirit
It falls on us once a year
Like it came on a midnight clear
It's all love
The season is a gift
When love came down to let us live
Let's open up and let our hearts embrace this moment

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We're gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year
