Southern Christmas Vacations

by Emma Wilbury

A buddy from NY recently asked me to describe a southern Christmas. Well, the South is a mighty big place but I believe I will conjure up some images of what it's like down here in coastal Georgia, where we live.

The cool, dusty blue light of December sun brushes the tops from the marsh grass and also the camellias are blooming in Old Savannah. Wreathes of real holly and evergreen hold on the large solid doors of the old mansions and you will hear the bells on the bridles of the mules and horses as they pull tourists, huddled in carriages, through the dappled streets and round the lush, shady squares. Carolers can be heard in City Market. It's not humid this time of the year so their voices carry far and clear.

Christmas traditions throughout the world

by Tony Ferraro

Festivals tend to be a reason to get together with friends and family, and eat, enjoy and be merry. Christmas is a wonderful festivity that is celebrated all over the world due to the large number of people who stick to the religious teachings of Christianity and their particular dispersion around the world. Christmas, due to the broad appeal, has also taken on much more luxurious proportions. It's become more of a holiday celebration as opposed to a spiritual festival. Folks are looking forward to Christmas and New Year the entire year, to enable them to go out and celebrate.

Where To Find Kindle 3 As Gift?

by Angelo Vasquez

With the Christmas season fast approaching, have you started to prepare plans for any christmas ideas for men? Choosing the right gift for any man in particular is a challenging job. First, you should know what type of personality he has. Is he the Do-It-Yourself type of guy? Is he a devoted creative thinker? Techno buff, perhaps? Is he athletic? Is the man young at heart and adventurous? Sentimental and romantic, is he? Is he young or old? Whatever his profile belongs to, you will get a good idea of how to tackle the challenge.

Second, you should know what his routines are. Know what he likes to do, what he usually does, and what he enjoys doing the most. A rich guy who collects stuff might love something that is very hard to acquire, not necessarily the most expensive but one that means the most to him. A simple non-expensive trinket or even a replica of something that has a very deep meaning to him will score big in the value and rarity department. It's clich, but yes it is the thought that counts... a lot.

The best part ofChristmas time that I recall as a child, was the belief that Santa Clause existed.
