  • 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.

    I'm sorry, but if those shorts did exist somewhere in Texas my *** would not fit in them.

    I'm sorry- That outfit is very readily available in Ft Lauderdale any day of the week. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    I'm sorry that my daughter didn't log herself off Skype when she used one of my laptops last weekend, very awkward moment frantically telling her guy friend he was talking to her Mom...

    I'm sorry my above post made no sense, I forgot to quote the post I was referring to.

    I'm sorry that at the same time I was giving the Avis ladies the biggest laugh they'd had in weeks. Avis lady one to Avis lady two, no ****, I really had her drive across 2 bridges to get to NJ. Only good thing was I accidentally found the Subway for deli trays and the liquor store with no help at all.
