a little help?
Thanks so much to everyone who responded, your help is greatly appreciated :)
Merriest of Christmases to all!
Hey I'm not sure if this is allowed, in which case you can delete this entry, but it's Christmas-related so I figured it was worth a shot.
I'm a college freshman and I need input for my final paper in Anthropology, which is a study of Christmas and family traditions. I've got some survey questions, if anyone would like to answer them that would be incredible!!!
( so whattaya think?Collapse )

Looking for people in Italy (Roma) for Shootings
Dear friends! IMPORTANT and URGENTLY!!!!!
The film crew of the "3 TV channel - Moscow" is planning on business trip to Roma from the 23rd of December to the 1st of January. The purpose - shootings of special reportings for our project "City. Different". Themes - Christmas and New year. Except all standard preparations for these holidays, we would like to film interesting human stories about different people connected with Christmas and New year. For example, people have got married (or are going to get married) these days, someone gave birth to a child in last year in Christmas, etc. - and the more unusual story the more it is perfect of course!!!!
These Reports will be broadcasting in prime-time in Russia. You will be seen by relatives and friends. And the main thing - we shall send a copy of report on DVD that it will be fine memory for the whole life.
Moreover we are also looking for an italian-russian interpreter in Roma,Italy for fees.

Merry Christmas from the home of the First Christmas Tree
Greetings from Riga Latvia Northern/Eastern Europe. Growing up in the State of Washington, I have fond memories of Christmas time. Snow, family get togethers, cutting the Chtistmas Tree, ice skating on the frozen ponds and going out with my facter in the fire truck playing Christmas music over load speakers on top of the truck.
Now I am living in Latvia which looks very much like Washington State.
I just wanted to share that the first record of a Christmas Tree was in the city of Riga Latvia in the year 1510http://www.firstchristmastree.com
Happy holidays to all.
Regards, Mike an American living in Riga

I'd rather be drinking crystal pepsi.
I guess I get to be the one who heralds in this 2004 holiday season.
My question is short. Has anyone tried the "holiday spice" pepsi? Perhaps an assignment--for those who want one--should be to try some of this cola and give a report. I'll try it eventually, but personally, I'd feel more comfortable knowing what this "holiday spice" was. Cinnamon? Ginger? Ground-up mistletoe? Current Mood: awake

Why I joined
Well I don't even know if anyone will be readding this right now I mean It's july and no one is really thinking about christmas.
I joined this group because I love christmas. It's the only holiday I decorate for. Last year we had this little 4 foot tree and It was ok but I wanted more. You know how they have sales after the holidays. Well that's when I hit the chirstmas fever. I bot a new tree a 6 fotter and all kinds of stuff,garland, lights, and all kinds of ordaments. It's a bigger tree and I didn't have any lights because the 4 foot was a prelighted tree. So we had to get everything. I mean we had stuff but we needed more for the new tree. I even went to K-mart and took stuff of there display tree. I had people working there giving me mean looks. I didn't care I wanted the ordaments and it wasn't like the coouldn't replace them next year. I thought it was funny.
Then christmas was over and I ended upi putting the 6 foot tree up just to see what it would look like and I kept it up until new years day.
So as you can see I love chirstmas. Current Mood: chipper

The advent calendar
My idea for creating this community comes from X-Entertainemt
which had done a Halloween countdown of bizarre Halloween related items.
Now they're at it again, this time with the Advent Calendar
I wish I had the energy and resources they do, but alas I do not. I hope to have another post by Thursday after I take a little trip to the pet store. Current Mood: accomplished

I have a friend who does not like family get-togethers all that much. Her family does not do anything for Thanksgiving, and so she was looking for another way to amuse herself over the break, since she wanted to avoid going home. "If I do," she proclaimed, "there'll be a holiday homicide or something."
I thought "holiday homicide" was a great phrase, appropriate to my thoughts about several holidays, chief among them being The Day After Thanksgiving, when I somehow found myself at the Mall of America. Not my idea!
I figured we were in trouble when we had to drive all the way up to the roof of the parking ramp to find a place to park. Inside, the mall was full of people with cell phones and children. Eating at the food cout would've been pleasant enough except every single table was taken. It was totally crazy.
I didn't buy anything (except lunch), being a fan of the Adbusters' Buy Nothing Day
idea--not that that's the real reason, the real reason is probably that I'm poor and never like shopping--so I don't even care how good the sales were. Besides, people are crazy about that, too. Here's proof.
Anyway, my friend and I have added Holiday Homicide to the list of things we'd like to name hypothetical punk bands. I thought it appropriate for this community.

I've always enjoyed the most iconic of Christmas candy treats: the candy cane. They've always come in a manner of shapes, sizes, and flavors (which I will investigate in a later article), but I've always stuck to the orginal pepermint candy cane.
However, all that has changed. On a trip yesterday to find article material, I ended up in a place called Cost Plus World Market. I'd never been in the store so I thought it was worth a look and wasn't even expecting to find anything there. Boy was I wrong, they a had a ton of Christmas related item, most of it candy: kiddie sized cakes, gingerbread house shaped gummies ("hand painted" said the label), giant talking Santa Pez dispencers, and more.
The item that had me most interested was the gigantic candy cane. Sadly I don't have any pictures to show this monstrosity of holiday sweetness, so grab a ruler and follow along/ The can (according to the label) weighs in at 1lb. 3.4oz, measures 1ft. 6 inches lengthwise and has a diameter of an inch. According to the nutritional label the giganticane is the equivalent of 39 standard canes and eating the whole thing would net 2145 calories (fat free!)
Now the question is, who was a candy cane this size made for and what does a normal person do with it? The cane is too large for and child or adult to enjoy, so I surmise its creation was intended for the Giant Space Baby (tm).
I have no idea what to do with a candy cane this size. So far I've played with it like it was a real cane or weapon and have kept in hanging in the closet. Eventually I guess I'll eat it (or as much as I can stand), the label says it good until Dec 2004, I hope I can finish it by then.
Note: Research has found that there is a larger candy cane, weighing in at 2lbs. However it log shaped instead of the tradional cane shape. I've not found a larger cane of the normal shape (but I'll keep my eyes open)
