    Lifetime Reveals 2020 Christmas Movie Plans

    Appears another group of movies in which Santa is just a minor role
  9. Lifetime Reveals 2020 Christmas Movie Plans, Here’s What We Know So Far By Lauren Dubois 5/09/20 AT 3:06 PM IBT Online The holiday season might be the last thing anyone is thinking of right now, but Lifetime is looking further ahead than the rest of us by already announcing some of the planned projects in the works for their 2020 Christmas movie season. After pulling off their most ambitious holiday season yet in 2019 by starting a 24/7 marathon of movie in October and premiering over 30 new titles, the cable channel is already starting to lay some groundwork for what could potentially be an even bigger event for 2020. While production on the different projects is in “various stages,” any production has been shut down due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, with dates to resume not yet determined. Still, work that doesn’t need to be done in front of the camera is in full swing. According to Entertainment Weekly, the network has made a big score when it comes to casting the lead of one of their still-untitled projects. Betty White has signed on to star in a project where her character “helps ready would-be Santas for the holidays. But a mystery looms: Is she actually Mrs. Claus?” However, the White-led film isn’t the only one that the network revealed, with some favorite stars from past films once again starring in new holiday movies. Kelly Rowland, who made her debut in 2019 in “Merry Liddle Christmas” is set to star in a sequel film in 2020 titled “Merry Liddle Christmas Wedding.” Meanwhile, Melissa Joan Hart, who previously starred in the network’s “Santa Con,” “A Very Merry Toy Store,” “A Very Nutty Christmas,” and “Christmas Reservations,” will step behind the camera to direct the potentially titled “Felix NaviDad.” That film is set to star Mario Lopez, who previously starred with Hart in “Toy Store,” as well as “Holiday in Handcuffs” for ABC Family (now Freeform).

  10. 12 Ways to Use Your Christmas Lights in the Summer By Mary Shannon Wells Southern Living Online If you love decorating for Christmas, you probably have stockpiles of Christmas lights stored (cleverly) away for all but one month of the year. But your Christmas lights shouldn’t sit in the attic gathering dust — there are ways to use them tastefully in the summer, too. Christmas lights instantly make any setting feel warm and even magical, so why wouldn’t you use them around the house during the other months of the year? Whether you’re lighting up an outdoor wedding reception or doing a fun DIY project with the kids while they’re out of school, get inspired to use those twinkling lights all summer long. There will be no time for tangles. Source: https://www.southernliving.com/home/decor/decorating-with-christmas-lights

    An honor!

    The longer I am apart of ClausNet I am humbled and appreciate all of those that are here ... I have the oath sitting on the window sill next to my desk at home in a frame that my wife put together for me.
  12. There has always been problems with credibility of sacred relics. That's why the Church is cautious to officially endorse local claims. It's like the tourist who went to the Holy Land and came home 5 nails of the cross. Antiquities and relics are difficult to confirm.
  13. Earlier
  14. It's the real St Nicholas if he were rolling around in his grave... (just a Clausnet joke!)
  15. has anyone ever heard any of the other "legends" ?? ribs on loan - crypt in Ireland - etc. ?
  16. Definitely Click Bait. The remains of St. Nicholas of Myra are in Bari Italy. They were stolen relocated from Turkey to Bari in 1087.
  17. BECAUSE ..... Then where does ONE PUT HIS PEPSI!? Duhhhhhhhh! Everybody knows you NEED TWO HOLDERS, preferably side by side in the middle so you don't have to slow down the machine to cross over your body while walking.
  18. Why wouldn't you put a Pringles can on your treadmill ? - they put a holder for one right there ! , , ,
  19. Thanks Doug Always enjoy your postings of news related items, because sometimes they are actually REAL and NOT FAKE NEWS which is something I have become accustom to with your Dr tells you this so you eat that, or work out but not B/4 you install a Pringels holder on that tread mill! LOL! 🤣 So this is VERY ENJOYABLE READ ........... Not that I don't like the other stuff, but this stuff is GOOD STUFF!
  20. kinda reads like clickbait - but discusses several of the legends around the remains of St. Nicholas . . . Archaeologists In Turkey Believe They've Discovered The Tomb Of Saint Nicholas Rebecca Shortall Updated August 13, 2019 You and the rest of the Christmas-loving population may have thought that Santa Claus was alive and well, hanging out in the North Pole, prepping for the night he dusts off his sleigh and delivers presents to children the world over. Turns out, his icy home is just a myth – archaeologists have discovered Santa Claus's tomb in the decidedly hotter locale of Turkey. Where is Santa Claus buried? As creepy as it may seem, the real-life Saint Nicholas's tomb was discovered in Demre in October 2017. Blame the archaeologists who unearthed it for bringing about the is-Santa-real chat much earlier than you may have expected. But the story is actually fascinating, shedding new light on the life of the man who became known as Santa Claus. In October 2017, archaeologists in Turkey made an exciting announcement: they believed they had discovered Saint Nicholas's remains, hidden beneath the floor of a church in the Demre district of Antalya. Scans revealed what looks like a previously hidden chamber underneath the floor. The church is located in Southern Turkey, close to where the saint is believed to have been born.

    An honor!

    I just realized that I never answered this question. Of course I do. While we all make mistakes, many of us hold ourselves to a higher standard because of the Santa Claus Oath. It is even known to do the same for those who do not portray the legend of Claus. That legend is an ideal that some choose to embrace in their everyday life and practice it as originally practiced...anonymously. And the Oath helps to remind us of our awesome responsibility to do no harm to that legend.

    An honor!

    I have it hanging up by my front door and read it every time I’m about to leave my house and have a business card size in my wallet I can pull out anytime. It definitely keeps me grounded some days and feel privileged to have signed it.

      Every once in a while I see some flagrant abuses of Santa’s appearance and etiquette. It strikes me some men don’t care about how they act or portray the beloved character of Santa.

      Gentlemen, you undertake an awesome responsibility when you button up your Santa Suit. Don’t take it lighty!

      The “World” has an image of Santa as represented by illustrations, traditions and personal contact. Believe it or not, you’re being measured by those who see you for your authenticity.

      You’re fooling yourself if you believe that no one notices or cares if your bead is yellow or unkempt. Maybe you’re also missing a few of those pearly whites, or they are stained from tobacco products. Again, don’t fool yourself….kids notice everything! I have a gold crown capping one of my lower teeth. Every once in a while, I have an inquisitive youngster question what that gold thing is in my mouth. Years ago I thought it was well hidden however; kids have uncanny radar to pick out any of our flaws….

      You may be asking yourself, “What difference does it make? “It’s not the Christmas Season.” Maybe it isn’t however, If you’re representing Santa, you’re representing one of the most recognizable characters in the world. What you do reflects upon me and every Santa reader of this article. If you’re going to be recognized then do justice to the character we are reenacting.

      Over the years I have been a Santa, I have frequently been by told by people about the Santa they hired or saw which left a very poor expression. Most of their comments were predictable. Their Santa did not interact with the children as expected or he was unprepared. He was unanimated, had a dirty suit or lack luster beard. Obviously these are sure fire ways never to be called to this group again.

      Think about what impression you make as a Santa and pay attention to developing your character. You can become one of the best Santas in your area by learning everything about your character and performing from the heart.

      Always remember: It's not about you. It's about the children.
