Carols of the Bell.
Hi guys, have you ever sung carols at a famous cathedrals or churches at your native countries? Here are the perfect holy sites to sing.

1. Westminster Abbey (London, England)

The abbey was site of the 2011 Royal Wedding, I love the atmosphere and the church. It gives you all a feel of Christmas, don't you think?

2. Cologne Cathedral (Cologne, Germany)

This is the first cathedral outside of the UK, and for the same reasons as Westminster Abbey.

3. St. Stephen's Basilica (Budapest, Hungary)

Although I have been to Budapest, I had never step inside this beautiful Basilica before, it also has the feel of bringing the Christmas spirit.

4. St. Vitus Cathedral (Prague, Czech Republic)

So far, this is only cathedral that I had ever enter. I love it's Gothic and Medieval architecture inside the Cathedral, or shall I say magic?

5. St. Stephen's Cathedral (Vienna, Austria)

Christmas is Coming!
Hi guys, I would like to write some of my favourite Christmas Activities here as I am feeling the Christmas blue already!

1) Carolling

I absolutely love to sing, despite that I'm a very shy person, I love to do it for the charity and pleasure of cheering people up!

2) Shopping

I had always love this, and 2 years ago I bought a t-shirt from Esprit for my Piano teacher and for myself. I'm very blessed to have it as of today!

3) Church Christmas Services

To be honest, I have an annoying habit to wake up late lately to go to Church and I hope that I do not have to do it especially on Christmas day. Please pray for me! I love to see all of my new friends.

4) Christmas Lights

I love taking photos with my Nikon DSLR Camera, and I would go down to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to snap photos of Christmas lights of I'm lucky enough!

Believe!

Do you believe in Christmas? Well, I do!

Yummy!
Hi guys, since Christmas will be coming here, I will be writing down some of my favourite Christmas songs may it be Carols, from Christmas films or from other artists who performed famous Christmas carols.

As Long As There's Christmas

This song is taken from Disney's midquel, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas. Belle sang this while decorating the tree and it was sung by Peabo Bryson and Roberta Flack, I absolutely adore the lyrics because it's very symbolic especially about Christmas day!

The First Noel

The tune is very pleasant to listen to and it tells us about the 3 Wise Men receiving the news that Jesus is born and they visit him. They gave him 3 gifts such as Gold, Myrrh and Frankincense!

Ding Dong! Merrily On High!

I love the tune because it is very catchy that I could not get it out of my head! My favourite rendition is by Jackie Evancho, because I felt that it is magical.

Just for shits and giggles.
Hello, Christmas fan club fans! Coke here. And today/tonight I'm gonna tell you my Christmas songs I like. You know how much I like edm, house, dubstep, jungleterror, the like, right?

*someone nods*

Well, around after Thanksgiving, I have an ear for Christmas music of any kind surprisingly. Maybe it's the holiday vibe? Let's cut the shit and get to it!

Major Lazer - Christmas Trees

I just found this lot too long ago today. A good reggae song with holiday vibes. Good to hear a holiday song from Diplo's Mad Decent. I wish Spinnin could do the same.

Gianni Marino - Carol Of The Bells

I heard this in a mix a while back. He's given the Carol Of The Bells song a big room house spin. IF i do a mix and use it as my intro.

This Christmas

I sing to this a LOT! I like the Chris Brown and Donnie Hathaway versions. Nothing really special about the lyrics since both versions are the same.

I love Christmas, it is one of my favorite holidays ever. Even though it was more exciting when I was a child or even a teenager. But I grew up and my sister who is 7 years younger than me, she's 25, I don't see her as much, even on holidays as she lives with her boyfriend of a year. Plus her job as a VJ at our local radio station takes up a lot of her time. Then there is the fact that my nana on my mom's side always put on the best Christmases, Christmas was also her favorite holiday, but sadly she passed away 4 years ago, then with my Aunt and Uncle going to either New York to have Christmas with my cousins, their children, who are in their 30's or they go to Santa Barbra. Now, why don't my family and myself go there to celebrate Christmas with them? Well, that is because me and my family live in Canada, we don't have a lot of money to go to the US and I don't even have a passport. Anyways Christmas is just dull right now, to me, even though it is my favorite holiday. Now on with my list. Most of these are family movies, there may be a couple that aren't but are still considered Christmas movies to me and what I would watch around Christmas and New Year Eve.

Quite a pleasant tune to listen to.
Since I had done with my favourite Christmas films, now it's the famous Oratorios composed by famous classical composers.

1) The Messiah by 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 by George Frederick Handel

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

3) St. John's Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach

It's dramatic music will not only celebrate Christmas, but to remind us that Jesus had died for our sins and was born on Christmas day to remind us of Him.

4) St. Matthew's Passion by Johann Sebastian Bach

The same reason as St. John's Passion, only this time it has some nice and relaxing tune that you might find the whole oratorio pleasant to listen to.

Hi Olaf, please make Malaysia snowing!
Hi guys, since Christmas is coming, what I'm going to write are some are the perfect Christmas films that you will enjoy this coming festive season!

1) Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas

So, this film is considered my least favourite Disney sequel (or shall I say midquel?). The songs are amazing and Christmas oriented, especially the song 'As Long As There's Christmas'. The lyrics is very meaningful that I felt in love with it!

2) The Sound of Music

Okay, I definitely know that 'My Favourite Things' is technically associated with Christmas. But, this movie is the best! I will definitely watch it in memory of Charmian Carr who passed away this year sadly.

3) The Polar Express

I have never seen this movie before, but thank goodness that I downloaded this movie and I will definitely watch it if I have the time.

4) How the Grinch Stole Christmas

I had seen this film many years ago, and I downloaded it so that my younger brother could enjoy it. It was composed by the late James Horner, and the song 'Where are you Christmas?' is also very sad!

Santa Baby!
Hi guys, I know that this article is pretty early, but I thought that I write about why I love Christmas 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 Christmas Eve, we would have a night service accompanied by dinner prior to the service. A few days earlier, the youths would decorate the church with the birth of Jesus and setting up the Christmas tree.
Although I come from a Buddhist family, we also decorate the house with a Christmas tree. We even put our presents underneath the tree for decoration, it is really fun to decorate the tree!

Why?

As mentioned, I come from a Buddhist family. Despite that, we are very open-minded people, we love Christmas because it is a time of give and take. As well as to learn about the birth of Jesus and what God give us because He works in mysterious ways in a good and bad way!

Humanity seems to have forgotten,
The true meaning of Christmas.
They think its only presents,
And they think it's Christmas trees, too.
Don't you remember what it's all about?
Have you forgotten the true meaning?
Christmas is more than just presents.
In fact, it's not about presents at all.
It's about things you can't wrap in a box,
And tie with a bow.
Peace on Earth and good will toward men,
That's what Christmas is all about!
Have you forgotten all about this?
Why is it only this time of year,
That we have to be nice to each other,
That we have to be kind?
Why can't it be all year 'round?
Why can't it be every day?
Why does it have to be just this day?

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, all the presents, decorations, etc. Remember, though, Christmas can also be hectic and stressful. Here's just a few tips on how to survive the Christmas 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 Christmas 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 Christmas dinner, and she has a terrible memory, don't count on her to take out the roast beef on time. Bring your own timer.
4. If you're not sure what to give your family for Christmas, get a gift card for their favorite restaurants or stores, and wrap it up. Don't be like my aunt who gave me and my sister hideous outfits for Christmas.
5. Don't eat Santa's cookies until your younger siblings are asleep. Otherwise, your younger siblings will never trust you again.

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 Christmas 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 next morning, the shoes are filled with sweets – if the children have been good. Supposedly Sankt Nicholas comes during the night to leave his gifts. He is accompanied by Knecht Ruprecht, who punishes bad children with his stick and leaves a piece of coal instead of sweets (some parents like to skip over this part of the legend nowadays).

The poem I decided to translate is set at this very special night. I did my best to keep the tone and the rhyme scheme. It is certainly not perfect, but I hope you like it nevertheless:

In Ukraine, the Christmas holidays begin since 2nd of January. Prior to Christmas 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 Christmas 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 year the month run over the earth for 12 times. Therefore, Ukrainians dedicate one dish to each month. To 12 traditional Christmas dishes belong today: kutya (boiled wheat, with honey, Wallachian nuts, poppy seeds and raisins), uzvar (broth made from dried fruits: pears, apples, plums, cherries), buckwheat or millet porridge, beans, boiled peas, vegetable pies with cabbage or fruit, dumplings, mushrooms, stuffed cabbage rolls (boiled rice wrapped in cabbage leaf), and cakes (baked dough bread) with a poppy etc. Kutya is of the particular attention. It and uzvar are prepared first, on Christmas Eve - January 6, at dawn, kutya should be got...

Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas and simply "Santa", is a figure with legendary, mythical, historical and folkloric origins who, in many western cultures, is said to bring gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of Christmas 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 by Greek and Byzantine folklore to Basil of Caesarea. Basil's feast day on January is considered the time of exchanging gifts in Greece.
Santa Claus is generally depicted as a portly, joyous, white-bearded man - sometimes with spectacles - wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots (images of him rarely have a beard with no moustache). This image became popular in the United States and Canada in the 19th century due to the significant influence of Clement Clarke Moore's 1823 poem "A Visit From St. Nicholas" and of caricaturist and political cartoonist Thomas Nast.

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

There are traditional Christmas songs that are deeply traditional, and they have been making Christmas special since ages. These link have been re-mixed with the cliched rock-riffs and power chord progressions, this aspect of Christmas Rock Music is neither inclined to Rock Music nor Christmas Music, it is not liked by a lot of people but some people appreciate the endeavor. The Christmas Rock Music should not be mere Guitar oriented remixes of Classic Christmas songs; on the other hand they should be written by the musicians themselves keeping their attitude in mind.

If you're looking for a festive look that doesn't scream "CHRISTMAS!", try out a sparkly sequinned dress! It's a popular look with all kinds of celebs.

Taylor Swift, Jordin Sparks, Beyonce, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, and Kristen Stewart have all shone in shiny dresses. It's a great look to wear to any holiday event you might have coming up (a party, a school dance, a girls' night, etc. etc.)

Here are some options we found from Delia's. This one is a light grey dress with a smattering of sparkles and a flouncy skirt. The second one only has sparkles on the top and a cute bow at the waist. And the third option is an all-over sequins look!

If you don't feel comfortable wearing full-on sparkles, try accessorizing with something like glittery tights, a sparkly ring, or shiny metallic nail polish.

Do you like this trendy look?

I really think christmas 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 Christmas 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 christmas 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

In 1984, a group of well-intentioned musicians got together to form the charity group Band Aid to raise money for famine in Ethiopia with their release of the super popular song, "Do They Know It's Christmas?" On the surface, to hear someone claim to "hate" such a song makes that person seem like a complete and total Grinch. How could you hate a song that raised money for famine victims, or brought awareness to the plight in Ethiopia? Right?

So allow me to explain my frustration with the song. Most people love the song, for its warm message and altrusitic intentions. I myself even link on a video on this spot that it was "so sweet" and that I loved it. That must have been before my heart shrank three sizes.

Actually, it was before I really listened to the lyrics. When you're told it's a song to raise money for Africa, and spread the true idea behind Christmas - giving hope and charity - it colors your impression of the song, and if you don't listen closely enough, you'll miss the incredibly offensive assumptions the song makes. So allow...

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 angels hearlded the Saviour's birth
Glory to God on high! and Peace on Earth.
