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

But did you 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 ipakita us a Santa Claus surrounded sa pamamagitan ng 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 you fanpoppers out there.

If you believe in god or you don't, it is always a special araw for families and mga kaibigan to ipakita how they really feel about one another, either this being pagkain fights, real fights or 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'. pasko 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 taon with my whole family.

But remember that pasko is not just about the presents or the food, although it is the best part lol, it is about family, mga kaibigan and santa.

So spread the joy and pag-ibig that this season brings, spread it to everyone that you know and maybe even to those that you don't. Have a great pasko :)

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

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

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,...

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...

I really think pasko 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 pasko 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 you really do that in the same way any other time of the year? Because I dont think so...
And the pasko music- wonderful! :)
I think people in general becomes nicer when Christmas, and for a season to have the power to make people nicer- that I call pure magic!!! :D

uy 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," sinabi 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 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...

sa pamamagitan ng this time of year, many people are running out of gift ideas. Well, if you have a gardener (or a potential gardener) among your mga kaibigan 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 madami creative.

If you know a fellow gardener who would like pagkain plants but just can't resist those beautiful bulaklak and decorative plants, plan a decorative pagkain garden for them! Many vegetables and herbs have lovely bulaklak or 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 pasko films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed sa pamamagitan ng famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah sa pamamagitan ng 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 sa pamamagitan ng George Frederick Handel

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

3) St. John's Passion sa pamamagitan ng Johann Sebastian Bach

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

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....

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).
