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...

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,...

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...

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 :)

The First Noel

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

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! :)

ارے guys so this is just some fun lil humor! i found this joke and thought it was cute! i think the women and especially the wives will agree!


After being away on business for a week before Christmas, Tom thought it would be nice to bring his wife a little gift.


"How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50.

"That's a bit much," کہا Tom, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30.

"Thats still quite a bit," Tom groused.

Growing disgusted, the clerk brought out a tiny $15 bottle.

Tom grew agitated, "What I mean," he said, "is I'd like to see something real cheap."

So the clerk handed him a mirror.

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

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...

 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...

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....

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).
