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

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

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...

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...

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...

Hi guys, I know that this artikulo is pretty early, but I thought that I write about why I pag-ibig pasko and how I celebrate it here in Malaysia.

How?

Every year, my church (I'm not baptized yet, mind you) would organised a special occasion. But the common one is definitely caroling, the location is normally depends because we need to get the approval from the management team themselves.
On pasko Eve, we would have a night service accompanied sa pamamagitan ng hapunan prior to the service. A few days earlier, the youths would decorate the church with the birth of Hesus and setting up the pasko tree....

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,...

Rock music is deeply spiritual and it has profound mystical roots, pasko rock music is nothing but rock songs having pasko as the theme. link is the most listened to during pasko time and there is a wide variety of musicians who make pasko music, pasko rock music included.

There are traditional pasko songs that are deeply traditional, and they have been making pasko special since ages. These link have been re-mixed with the cliched rock-riffs and power chord progressions, this aspect of pasko Rock Music is neither inclined to Rock Music nor pasko Music, it...

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 pasko 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 susunod morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been...

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 :)

I really enjoy the pasko season. I pag-ibig the pelikula that get played every year. I pag-ibig the pasko music radio station. I pag-ibig the lights. I pag-ibig the snow. I pag-ibig the togetherness. I pag-ibig the Claymation. I pag-ibig wrapping presents. I pag-ibig unwrapping presents. I pag-ibig making cards and presents for my mga kaibigan and my teachers. I pag-ibig going to the mall and finding the perfect gift. I pag-ibig going shopping with my friends. I pag-ibig the classroom pasko parties that are against school rules. I pag-ibig going to Petsmart with my mom to get medyas stuffers for my cats. I pag-ibig waking up early on Christmas...

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.

 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...

 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...

I
The shepherds went their hasty way,
And found the lowly stable-shed
Where the Virgin-mother lay:
And now they checked their eager tread,
For to the Babe that at her bosom clung,
A mother song the Virgin-mother sung.


II
They told her how a glorious light,
Streaming from a heavenly throng
Around them shone, suspending night!
While sweeter than a mother's song,
Blest mga kerubin hearlded the Saviour's birth
Glory to God on high! and Peace on Earth.

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...

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

Santa's got a little friend,

The cutest little donkey,

When Santa visits his paisans,
