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

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

ciao 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," detto 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.

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

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

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

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

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

As Long As There's Christmas

This song is taken from Disney's midquel, Beauty and the Beast: The Come d’incanto Christmas. Belle sang this while decorating the albero and it was sung da Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack, I absolutely adore the lyrics because it's very symbolic especially about Natale day!

The First Noel

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

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

In Ukraine, the Natale holidays begin since 2nd of January. Prior to Natale 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 Natale 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 anno the mese run over the earth for 12 times. Therefore,...

da this time of year, many people are running out of gift ideas. Well, if te have a gardener (or a potential gardener) among your Friends 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 più creative.

If te know a fellow gardener who would like Cibo plants but just can't resist those beautiful fiori and decorative plants, plan a decorative Cibo garden for them! Many vegetables and herbs have lovely fiori o 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 Natale films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed da famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah da 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 da George Frederick Handel

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

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

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

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

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

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

For "Happy New anno Day" in Greek te should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

During Natale 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 te meet. So, if te meet someone in the morning, the proper way to greet him o 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 Natale 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 successivo morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...
