pasko is a wonderful time of the year, all the presents, decorations, etc. Remember, though, pasko can also be hectic and stressful. Here's just a few tips on how to survive the pasko season.
1. Telling your mother that she has enough ornaments only gives her an excuse to buy more.
2. If you are dragged to a neighbor's house for a pasko party, don't drink the eggnog if you plan to stay sober. Don't be like my uncle. That "spicy, different taste" is called rum.
3. If your grandmother is cooking pasko dinner, and she has a terrible memory, don't count on her to take out the roast...

I got this from the H & H Nursery newletter.

Fresh holiday greens such as wreaths and garlands have a definite life span, but with the following tips you can keep them looking good so you can enjoy their wonderful scent and beauty throughout the holiday season.

If you aren't hanging or mounting your greens right away, lay them outside on the ground (best side up) in a cool shady location until you are ready to use them. Try to avoid getting the greenery wet.

Sunlight, heat and wind are the worst enemies for holiday greenery, so keep that in mind when hanging them up. Outdoors, wreaths will...

 Make my wish come true All I want for pasko is you ♥
Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas is you ♥
All I Want for pasko is You
Mariah Carey

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the pasko tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for pasko is you

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don't care about the presents
Underneath the pasko tree

I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on pasko day

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want...

Epiphany in Greece is known as Theofania or 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 tumawid 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 sa pamamagitan ng the people, but they also fed it to their livestock, which was believed to insure good...

 Is the word "Xmas" a result of the commercialization of Christmas?
Is the word "Xmas" a result of the commercialization of Christmas?
Every holiday season, newspapers, malls and telebisyon commercials urge you to take advantage of "Xmas sales and specials." The word "Xmas" is easier to use in advertisements, and as a result, it's become associated with the commercialization of Christmas. But some Christians take offense to
the word "Xmas" and have called for the abolishment of this truncated version of the word "Christmas." So why is it so controversial, and where did it originate?


For some, Xmas is a dreaded four-letter word that reemerges every holiday season. The phrase is literally and symbolically distasteful, according...

Vasilopita is the Greek New Year's cake. Vasilopita is associated with Saint Basil's araw on January 1 in Greece.

On New Year's araw families cut the Vasilopita to bless the house and bring good luck for the new year.
It is traditional to bake a coin into the Vasilopita (St. Basil's cake). The one who receives the coin is considered to be especially blessed for the year. A piece of cake is sliced for each member of the family and any visitors present at the time. Slices are also cut for various other people or groups, depending on local and family tradition. They may include St. Basil and other...

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

Hey! Chingedy ching,

The cutest little donkey,

with Dominick he'll be.
Because the reindeer cannot

I'm sure you know that classic pasko story. The one about a man named Scrooge and that fatefull pasko Eve that changed his life. I must admit, looking out into the world, if the Ghosts of pasko Past, Present, and Yet To Come have found themselves, like so many, unemployed. I feel like we need them now madami than ever.

Every pasko it seems the same and it truely saddens me. I hear reports on the infamous "Black Friday" of people being run over as well as fighting to get that last discounted item. People loosing their patience altogether and taking it out on those who are just...

For all the people who want a happy artikulo about Christmas, I'm sorry to let you down, and maybe I'm a little pessimistic but now I'm getting older this is how I think about Christmas:

Five years nakaraan (I was nine) I was sitting in my aunts car on pasko Eve, and we were talking about a tv ipakita in Holland called 'all you need is love'
I don't know if you know, or have the ipakita in America but the tv ipakita is about people who get unexpected visits from people that they love,and then, for one night, they can forget all their problems and enjoy Chrismas Eve together. I thought that it was a silly...

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

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

For "Happy New taon Day" in Greek you should say "Kali Protohronia".

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

During pasko 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 you meet. So, if you meet someone in the morning, the proper way to greet him or her is: Kalimera, Hronia Polla! (Good morning, Many Happy Returns).

In Ukraine, the pasko holidays begin since 2nd of January. Prior to pasko 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 pasko 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 taon the buwan run over the earth for 12 times. Therefore,...

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

I've always preferred the term pasko in opposed to Xmas, it looks better when it's written in cards or a part of pasko decorations, and what's an Xmas anyway? I know that it's some type of abbreviation for the word pasko but it doesn't look right and it sounds worse if you try saying it, pasko has become so commercialized over the years it seems as though many of us have Nawawala our pasko cheer and the meaning of pasko isn't what it used to be, however this is my first pasko 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 you might've played it before.I'm gonna get to the point.
Dirty pasko is a game you and your family can play on Christmas.Everyone brings a mystery gift(it can be funny or 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 you and your family should try it.
