Did you know?
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.

Hello Planet Christmas Family,

Just an update on my father. We have had a MAJOR setback with him. He has been in the hospital  now for 1 month. One week in the regular part of the hospital and the other 3 weeks in the long term care part of the hospital receiving IV antibiotics. He is now doing much better. Has now begin dialysis 3 times a week and is (knock on wood) being transferred to a rehab facility to work on physical therapy for 21 days. The doctors strongly recommended the rehab since he has been in the bed now for like 4 and a half weeks. Been doing some therapy in the hospital but this is going to be more intense kind of therapy.

Just keep in your prayers for me and ask the Lord to heal his body and let me have my father back at least for a little while longer.

Thanks all.

Jerry
