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

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

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

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

But did আপনি 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 প্রদর্শনী us a Santa Claus surrounded দ্বারা androgynous little elves and a matronly Mrs. Claus? I mean, it's cold up at the North Pole. Surely Santa isn't adverse...

Dominick the Donkey

Hey! Chingedy ching,

It's Dominick the donkey.

The Italian বড়দিন donkey.

Santa's got a little friend,
his name is Dominick.
The cutest little donkey,
you never see him kick.
When Santa visits his paisans,
with Dominick he'll be.
Because the reindeer cannot
climb the hills of Italy.

Hi everyone!

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

If আপনি believe in god অথবা আপনি don't, it is always a special দিন for families and বন্ধু to প্রদর্শনী how they really feel about one another, either this being খাবার fights, real fights অথবা 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'. বড়দিন 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 বছর with my whole family.

But remember that বড়দিন is not just about the presents অথবা the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, বন্ধু and santa.

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

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

Another Holiday season is upon us and আপনি know what that means: break out the egg nog, light up the tree, put up the stockings, take out a সেকেন্ড mortgage for the credit card bill and আগুন up The Carpenter's বড়দিন album (turn it up to 11, will you?).

It also means it's time for another তালিকা of বড়দিন video goodies.

So kick back and get ready to enjoy another batch of holiday fun. Oh, and in case আপনি missed last year's তালিকা be sure to check out link

Since we're all still in বড়দিন 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 প্রণয় the vibrant and how colourful this animated cartoon, it's whimsical অ্যানিমেশন style will make আপনি প্রণয় 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 প্রণয় Christmas, it is one of my পছন্দ holidays ever. Even though it was আরো exciting when I was a child অথবা 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, বড়দিন was also her পছন্দ holiday, but sadly she passed away 4 years ago, then with my Aunt and Uncle going to either New York to have Christmas...

Hi guys, have আপনি ever sung carols at a famous cathedrals অথবা churches at your native countries? Here are the perfect holy sites to sing.

1. Westminster Abbey (London, England)

2. Cologne Cathedral (Cologne, Germany)

This is the first cathedral outside of the UK, and for the same reasons as Westminster Abbey.

3. St. Stephen's Basilica (Budapest, Hungary)

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

1) Carolling

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

2) Shopping

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

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

4) বড়দিন Lights

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

Believe!

Do আপনি believe in Christmas? Well, I do!

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

As Long As There's Christmas

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

The First Noel

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

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

Major Lazer - বড়দিন Trees

I just found this lot too long পূর্বে 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.

Since I had done with my favourite বড়দিন films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed দ্বারা famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah দ্বারা 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 দ্বারা George Frederick Handel

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

3) St. John's Passion দ্বারা Johann Sebastian Bach

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

If আপনি want to wish "Merry Christmas" to someone in Greece, then আপনি should say: Kala Hristouyienna.

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

For "Happy New বছর Day" in Greek আপনি should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

During বড়দিন 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 আপনি meet. So, if আপনি meet someone in the morning, the proper way to greet him অথবা 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 বড়দিন 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 পরবর্তি morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

Epiphany in Greece is known as Theofania অথবা 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 ক্রুশ 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 দ্বারা the people, but they also fed it to their livestock, which was believed to insure good...
