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

Some of my fondest Christmas memories were spent in front a of ویژن ٹیلی watching such classics as the animated Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer یا one of the myriad versions of Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol'.

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

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

But did آپ 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 دکھائیں us a Santa Claus surrounded سے طرف کی 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 آپ fanpoppers out there.

If آپ believe in god یا آپ don't, it is always a special دن for families and دوستوں to دکھائیں how they really feel about one another, either this being food fights, real fights یا 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'. Christmas 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 سال with my whole family.

But remember that christmas is not just about the presents یا the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, دوستوں and santa.

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

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....

Since we're all still in Christmas 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 love the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical اندازی حرکت style will make آپ love 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 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...

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...

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 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 Christmas celebrating, lighting one candle every Sunday.

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...
