  1. I've told that for years. And in the past, concluded it with, "How else would an old, fat elf get around the world safely in 1 night without a bunch of females telling him where to go?" It usually gets a TON of laughs from the adults.

  2. There's one exception to this story that science does not take into account. In order to deliver toys to the entire world on Christmas Eve, the Elves and I have developed a way to "bump" time. Not time travel, mind you, but just a slight bump in the space time continuum when I'm traveling over, let's say, the Atlantic or Pacific Ocean or the Mohave Desert. Now, the reindeer and I are inside the sleigh when the bump occurs, and as a result, it affects our metabolism. That's why, it appears that I haven't aged in over 1000 years and the male reindeer don't shed their antlers until after the holidays. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

  3. Mum turns house into a huge Santa's grotto more than three months before Christmas Source - Wales Online By - Nathan Bevan Date - 06-09-2021 The woman who became a internet sensation last year by putting up a grand's worth of Christmas decorations three months early has done it again. Caroline Gabe, from Neath Port Talbot, made headlines as far away as America in September 2020 for the elaborate festive display which saw her house and garden festooned with 3,000 fairy lights, giant inflatable snowmen and sparkling snow. When asked why, she explained that she did it to cheer up her neighbours after "a horrible and surreal year" under Covid. Read more:The best Christmas decorations in Wales - from yarn bombing to an entire street of lights "And things haven't really improved much this year either, have they?" said the former health worker and mum-of-three, who lives in Heol y Felin, Caewern. "If anything it's been just as bad, what with coronavirus case figures back on the rise - what is more, I also lost my cousin Julie to cancer back in the spring and she was always such a lover of Christmas. It took Caroline 12 hours to set up everything (Image: Caroline Gabe) "So this time round I've put up the decorations in her honour too. They remind me of her and I know she's looking down right now and loving it all." The 47-year-old added that she's even managed to up the ante with her latest display. "I've got lots of new additions - an 8ft blow-up Santa, a huge illuminated Father Christmas and about 4,800 warm white lights, to name but a few. "Don't ask me how much that will all cost to run, I daren't look," she laughed. "I was hoping to plug it all into the next door neighbours' house so they can help with the bills." Caroline added that the seasonal scene took her 12 hours to set up, with the grand switch-on taking place on Saturday night. How Caroline's house looked this time last year - "You wouldn't believe how many people have come to see it already - they've been driving all the way down from the Rhondda. "It's nice to put a smile on others' faces and it also brings me and my kids a lot of joy." And 2021 won't be the last time she does it either. "No, I've got the bug now, so - pandemic or no pandemic - every September from now on is going to be Christmas come early."

Move over ordinary bottles, as you can now buy an Orange & Gingerbread Gin Liqueur that comes in a decorated snow globe design. The best bit? It even lights up!

Flavour-wise, the gin sounds totally delicious. Expect an indulgent orange and gingerbread flavour made with cinnamon, spice extracts and Seville oranges, that come together to create a subtly sweet and indulgent taste.

  6. Christmas movie channel launching this September will air festive films 24/7 Source - The Mirror By - Jasmine Allday Date - 01-09-2021 Christmas movie lovers rejoice! UK viewers are set to get a brand new channel that will play your favourite Christmas movies, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The channel will launch on Thursday, September 23 and will run into January and it promises to show some of the biggest Christmas hits including Home Alone, The Polar Express and Elf. It will be free to air and available to people on Freeview, Sky, Virgin Media and Freesat, temporarily replacing GREAT! movies classic for the festive season. There will be a huge range of movies for all Christmas fans to enjoy as well as exclusive channel premieres for the likes of A Christmas Melody, starring Mariah Carey and Just In Time For Christmas featuring Christopher Lloyd. Home Alone has been a Christmas movie staple for three decades On Strike For Christmas, The Christmas Sitters, Beaus of Holly, Call Me Claus with Whoopi Goldberg, A Husband for Christmas, and Crazy for Christmas will also make their premiere on the channel. You can get into the festive season early by tuning in from late September, with the movies set to get their final play for the season on January 4, 2022. The Polar Express is one of the most popular Christmas movies Home Alone celebrated its 30th anniversary last year and as part of the celebrations, director Chris Columbus spoke to Insider about the famous mirror scene, where Macaulay Culkin's character shows off his morning routine in the mirror. Speaking about the famous scene, Columbus said: "It was kind of [improvised] on set, because he wasn't supposed to do that. "If you put something on your face that burns, most people move their hands right away. "So my direction to him was when you pat your face, move your hands and scream. And I think it was the first take, he kept his hands on his cheeks. We all started laughing hysterically. "We did it a couple more times with his hands off his face, but my editor, Raja Gosnell, he cut that take into the first cut that I saw and it was in there forever. It's funny, the iconic moment from Home Alone was an accident."

  10. Chevy Chase headed to Detroit for 'Christmas Vacation' screening Source - Detroit News By - A Graham Date - 15-09-2021 The comedy star will appear at a screening and Q&A session for his 1989 holiday classic at Detroit's Masonic Temple on Dec. 9th 13 hours ago Chevy Chase will be spending part of his Christmas vacation in Detroit. The comedy legend will appear at Detroit's Masonic Temple on Dec. 9 for a screening of his 1989 holiday classic "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation," and will participate in a Q&A session following the film, promoters announced Tuesday. Tickets for the event go on sale at noon on Friday. Pre-sale tickets go on sale through Axs.com at noon on Wednesday. Proof of vaccination is required for the event. VIP tickets will also be available and may include a photo-op with Chase, although those details are COVID-dependent and are still being hammered out. "Depending on the state of the pandemic, CDC recommendations and in consideration of both artist and public health, this may be substituted with another exclusive benefit of equivalent value, to be determined," reads a message on the event's website. "Christmas Vacation" follows family man Clark Griswold's (Chase) attempts to have a great Christmas with his family, despite all of his attempts falling short. It hit theaters in December 1989 and grossed $73.5 million at the North American box office, and over the years — thanks in large part to repeated showings on cable TV — it has become a Christmas favorite for audiences. The Masonic Temple event is part of a touring series of "Christmas Vacation" special screenings with Chase; there are also events planned in Atlanta and outside Boston. Ticket prices for the Masonic event have not yet been announced, but tickets for the Atlanta event rage from $45-$75.

  15. New LEGO Christmas set spotted in store Source - Brick Fantasic By - Jackie Davies Date - 03-09-2021 Summer is officially over, so apparently it’s time for Santa to take his reindeer onto LEGO Store shelves in China. Various Christmas sets have been popping up both online and on the packaging of other sets. Now, Instagram user brickfinder has shared a picture from a Chinese LEGO Store showing that Santa Claus might be coming to town in brick form. With product number 40499, the set includes a buildable sleigh, four reindeer, and the big red man himself. His sleigh is packed full of toys and presents, ready to give to all the nice children this year. We can also spot a price of 349 Chinese yuan, which converts to about £39. We could reasonably expect the set to retail for £34.99. As we haven’t got any confirmed information from the LEGO Group on this set, we’ll have to wait for some official listings online until we can confidently state prices for other areas of the world. We’re expecting other festive sets for Christmas to come online in October, two months ahead of the season itself, so 40499 will probably land online at a similar time. Keep an eye out for confirmation from the LEGO Group on exactly where LEGO Santa Claus will be flying off to and how much he will cost.

  17. There is a rainbow to be found amid the dark cloud of health issues plaguing the transportation industry. People will have to shop and buy locally. Dad might even have to make little Timmy a gift for Christmas instead of buying something from China! Not having the shelves stocked with the most popular gift means folks will have to shop local and that’s a good thing. I also think it’s a good thing for the children NOT to get the biggest and fastest gift they asked for but instead to be thankful for whatever it is they do receive. Being in the transportation industry myself the “Golden Week” is long gone. As of the end of August there were 31 container ships anchored outside of Long Beach. The docks have empty container ships that are waiting for containers to take west. Most of those containers are on trains that can’t move due to manpower shortages. No crews available! The carrier I’m with cutoff over 1000 operating personnel last summer in response to business slowing on account of the shutdowns. They created this manpower shortage to save money. They’re hiring now but only 5-10 men for each class. At this rate it’ll be a few years before we’re back to line capacity with operating personnel.

  18. Covid: Jason Leitch ‘hopeful’ Christmas won’t be cancelled in 2021 amid rising cases. Source - The Courier By - Alistair Clarke Date - 31-08-2021 Professor Jason Leitch says he is “hopeful” a traditional Christmas will not have to be cancelled again in 2021 amid rising Covid-19 cases in Scotland and fears over how the NHS will cope. People were allowed to gather in small groups on Christmas Day last year before the country went into another lockdown – but were encouraged not to mix at all where possible. The national clinical director – who warned Scots to prepare for a “digital Christmas” in 2020 – was fielding questions on BBC Radio Scotland on Tuesday. He told host Stephen Jardine: “The headline is that [in 2020] we cancelled Christmas; of course, no one can cancel Christmas. “What we cancelled was the family gatherings around Christmas, which was horrible. “I am hopeful that we won’t have to do that again. Scots were encouraged to have a “digital Christmas” last year. “There is a bit of a storm coming in the winter. We’re not sure what flu will look like. “The southern hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand, has had a relatively mild flu season. “We’re hopeful that we will also have a mild flu season, but we cannot guarantee it. It will be stopped by the same things that stop Covid. “But the winter for infectious disease is always tough. Our hospitals are prepared for that, we’re ready. “The vaccination programme is about to begin, and I would encourage everybody to get their flu vaccine.” Jillian Evans, head of health intelligence at NHS Grampian, says modelling suggests worse is still to come in terms of the virus. She told Radio Scotland: “There’s every chance, and very likely, that case numbers will continue to rise unless there are some changes to restrictions.” Ms Evans says there are limited ways now to keep the virus under control – such as self-isolating, testing and vaccination. “I am really worried that things are going to get worse before they get better,” she added. Scotland has seen record numbers of new daily cases in the last week, with nearly 38,000 new positive test results reported in the last seven days. Nicola Sturgeon has refused to rule out the need for restrictions to be reintroduced. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says the country is in a “fragile” place, refusing last week the rule out the need for new lockdown measures. Prof Leitch was also quizzed about the isolation rules in force in schools, which relaxed to allow close contacts to remain in class. Describing the decisions for politicians as “finely balanced”, he said: “The risk we’ve chosen to take is to remove the positive cases but not the contacts. “If there are some exceptions to that, local public health leaders can make different choices if they are worried about a particular school.”

  19. The title of this article is ridiculous. I think the author was just hoping to startle folks into reading the piece. Christmas will not be canceled…ever. As to the shortages and workforce situation, it is a wonderful opportunity for those looking for work. It is an even greater opportunity for those local entrepreneurs (small businesses), that think outside the box, to find a way of providing a new product where there is demand. Don’t go global. Keep it local!

  21. Good story for that one, brother John. I have always gone with the dropping antlers after prior to winter story. But I will also add in that Rudolph is the one exception to that and it must be his red nose that keeps him from dropping his antlers when all the other male reindeer do.

  29. According to Encyc Brittania: Grotto, natural or artificial cave used as a decorative feature in 18th-century European gardens. Grottoes derived from natural caves were regarded in antiquity as dwelling places of divinities. Grottoes were often constructed from a fanciful arrangement of rocks, shells, bones, broken glass, and other strangely assorted objects and were commonly associated with water (see nymphaeum). Well-known garden grottoes were the Grotto of Thetis at Versailles, Fr., Alexander Pope’s grotto at Twickenham, Middlesex, Eng. (now part of Greater London), and the grotto at Stourhead, Wiltshire, Eng. I will try and find the origins of Santa using a grotto and post it up

  32. The Repair Shop is looking for Christmas items to fix and this is how to apply Source - Wales Online By - Megan Nisbitt Date - 04-09- 2021 We may only be in September but The Repair Shop is getting ready for Christmas well in advance. The BBC One show, which sees craftsmen and women take beautiful but broken family treasures and bring them back to life using incredible skills and expertise, has opened applications ahead of its Christmas special. Presented by Jay Blades and filmed at The Weald and Downland Living Museum, just outside Chichester (you can read more about the location of The Repair Shop here) the heart-warming series sees cherished items restored. And now BBC viewers have a chance to get their festive treasured fixed as applications for the Christmas episodes are now open. In a statement posted on The Repair Shop's official Instagram page the team reached out to those in need of a "Christmas miracle".

  34. Can ABBA claim the 2021 Christmas Number 1? Band reveal their new album Voyage includes a festive song Source - Official Charts By - By Rob Copsey Date - 04-09-2021 Pop fans rejoiced this week as ABBA announced their comeback with a virtual concert and new album - their first new material in 40 years. If that wasn't exciting enough, member Benny Anderson revealed during the livestream announcement that the record includes a Christmas song. Perhaps surprisingly, it will be ABBA's first ever festive song. The group never officially recorded a Christmas song, but members have recorded festive music outside of ABBA - notably Benny and Bjorn, who released a Christmas album in their pre-ABBA days as part of rock band The Hep Stars. In 1981, singer Agnetha and her daughter Linda recorded Christmas album Nu Tandas Tusen Julejus, the title track of which is a traditional Swedish language festive song. Of course, odds are already on for ABBA to score this year's Official Christmas Number 1 with the track. Luke Tarr, Head of PR at bookmakers Star Sports, said: "ABBA delighted music fans with the announcement that their new album is due to be released in November, and punters have been taking a chance on them reaching the top of the Christmas charts at 8/1." If they manage it, ABBA could be the latest icons to join the Christmas music hall of fame - previous acts to claim an Official UK Christmas Number 1 include The Beatles, Queen, Cliff Richard, and Spice Girls. Things are shaping up nicely for ABBA's upcoming ninth studio album Voyage, with a reported 40,000 UK pre-orders since yesterday's announcement. The group launched their comeback with two new songs, I Still Have Faith In You and Don't Shut Me Down. Other songs on the record include I Can Be That Woman, No Doubt About It, and the curiously-titled Keep An Eye On Dan. To date, ABBA have nine Number 1s on the UK's Official Singles Chart, plus nine chart-topping albums.

  38. Marvel’s Hawkeye TV Series is a Christmas Show Marvel's Hawkeye TV series on Disney+ will explore the MCU at Christmas. By Mike Cecchini|August 30, 2021 Superhero movies and TV shows set during the holiday season are pretty rare beasts. Sure, we’ve had the occasional vaguely holiday themed episode of an Arrowverse show from time to time (since those shows, at least pre-pandemic, tended to operate more or less in “real time” with their broadcast schedules), and of course both Iron Man 3 and Shazam! were set around the Christmas season. But it’s rare that they really revel in the atmosphere of the season. That’s going to change with Marvel’s new Hawkeye series coming to Disney+ in November, which according to executive producer Trin Tranh is “grounded and funny, packed to the brim with Christmas spirit.” Fans had already suspected that Hawkeye could be set around the holidays when the first official image from the series, featuring Hailee Steinfeld as aspiring superheroic archer Kate Bishop hanging out with former Avenger Clint Barton (Jeremy Renner). That image, seen above, included some prominently placed Christmas lights among the various trick arrows and targets scattered around a basement. Tranh’s remarks come from the latest issue of TV Guide, in which she sheds a little light on both the setting and flavor of the next MCU live action show. While we’ve already glimpsed the MCU at Christmastime in Iron Man 3, this will be the first holiday season we spend there after the events of Avengers: Endgame. In other words, it will be the first time we see how the citizens of the MCU are enjoying the holidays after they’ve been reunited with many relatives who had been “snapped” away by Thanos at the climax of Avengers: Infinity War. “[New York City] has, in many ways, recuperated and continued thriving,” Tranh told TV Guide, “but the same can’t be said for its citizens.” We’ll leave any current real world parallels there to your imagination. Tranh also spoke about how Kate ends up in the orbit of Clint, saying that she has put in years of training specifically so that she can become a superhero. “Kate is looking for ways to implement those skills,” Tranh says. “That’s when she runs into Clint, who has no clue who she is and doesn’t really understand her obsession for him.” Hawkeye is taking at least some of its inspiration from the celebrated Matt Fraction and David Aja comics that kicked off in 2012. Those stories are an absolute riot, and fans of them may note that the friendship between Kate and Clint isn’t exactly without its hurdles. It’s easy to imagine Kate becoming quickly disillusioned with an exhausted Clint who might just be hoping to put the chaotic events of the last five years behind him so he can spend time with the family that had been taken from him. The Hawkeye cast also includes Vera Farmiga as Eleanor Bishop, Fra Fee as Kazimerz Kazimierczak, Tony Dalton as Jack “Swordsman” Duquesne, Florence Pugh as Yelena Belova (whose involvement was teased during the Black Widow post-credits scene), Alaqua Cox as Maya “Echo” Lopez, and Zahn McClarnon as Willie Lincoln. We wrote more about all these new characters here. Marvel’s Hawkeye premieres on Disney+ on Nov. 24. Just in time for the holidays!

Additionally, each item comes individually wrapped in tissue paper. It's placed on the bottom to ensure no movement or soil spillage during transit, but the plant itself is left open above soil level to receive the light it needs to thrive.

Some of those we hire only work a week and then are gone. One young lady went through the hiring process, then the training, began work the next day, went out for her lunch break and did not return. Some of the people leaving us are finding jobs with set hours and better pay. I can't fault them for that. Three of my local fast food places have had to close early on several days due to lack of employees to run the operations. One of the fast food places is advertising pay up to $14.50 an hour. There are plenty of jobs, just no one wants to work these.
