Santa Claus

 Santa Claus


The story tells that Nicolás secretly gave a bag full of gold coins to three women
"whose father did not have the resources"  when they reached the age of marriage. It is said that the priest entered through a window
 and put the gold bag inside the girls' socks, which hung over the fireplace to dry them.


Records indicate that the transformation occurred in the year 1624. "It was in the seventeenth century
 when the image of Santa Claus arrived in the United States from the Netherlands, - a country in which Sinterklaas or San Nicolás is venerated,
 a character who brings gifts to children on December 5. "

However, in 1809 the writer Washington Irving deformed the name of the Dutch saint Sinterklaas in the vulgar pronunciation of Santa Claus.
 This could be considered the birth of the name.
 Then the poet Clement Clarke Moore made his contribution in a poem where he talks about Santa Claus as a dwarf and thin,
 but who gives toys on Christmas Eve to children and travels on a sleigh pulled by nine reindeer including the leader, Rodolfo.

In 1863 Santa Claus adopts his new physiognomy thanks Thomas Nast,
a cartoonist who designed the character for his Christmas strips in Harpers Weekly.
 Their new clothes would have influence of the bishops of yesteryear and without relation with San Nicolás de Bari.

The story and celebration began to spread by the hand of Santa Claus,
 with the fat character, barbel and red after an illustration made in 1870
 by the German-American cartoonist Thomas Nast on the basis of a poem by Clement Moore.

Santa Claus has been widely used as a commercial tool. At the end of the 19th century,
 from a US announcement of the Lomen Company, a US company in the refrigeration sector,
 who incorporated the tradition that Santa Claus would come from the North Pole;
and Christmas reindeer would be popularly popularized as a means of transportation for Santa Claus.
In 1930 Coca Cola acquired the rights of this living object and in its advertisements began to use it.

Last News ! .. Santa Claus in economic troubles, Does this remind you of a situation in real life?

Last News ! .. a Santa Claus in economic troubles,

Does this remind you of a situation in real life?

Dear friends a few days before Christmas, we learned some details about Santa that no television channel announced,
 with the loans he asked the banks to buy his house, he went bankrupt and had to pawn his sleigh to return the money as you can see here,
 and only stayed with the deer.


As Santa was left in ruins, and since he has so many friends, one of them lent him his little horse to finish his job of distributing toys like every year.

His friends when seeing him so sad invited him to a Christmas party where he enjoyed music,

 he danced as far as he could, he ate tamales tacos, lechon, rice with beans and even broke a pinata and his joy was so great,

 that again he heard his so famoza laughter JO-JO-JO-JO JO!

When the party ended Santa could not return to the North Pole,

 and asked to spend the night with one of his friends that his job is to make snow flavors and know him as the snowman,

here you can see him even with I dream, since I got up early because I had to be ready to distribute the toys on the night of December 24th.

And with the help of his friends, Santa was able to continue with his work of distributing his toys.

         Well I hope this story is fun for you, but sometimes real for some parents.

I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a great New Year.

   Merry Christmas !

They filled the streets the day after Thanksgiving.

For the year of 1961 among the police officers
responsible for traffic regulation, popularizing around 1966,
and extending to the rest of the states from 1975.

to the accounts of the stores, which go from red to black numbers thanks to the surplus.
Black Friday is not a holiday,
but many entrepreneurs see this day as a holiday along with Thanksgiving,
giving employees a day off, in fact increasing the total number of potential buyers.
It is usually the day of greatest commercial movement of the whole year.

Thanksgiving, or Thanksgiving Day, is a public holiday celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States.

It originated as a harvest festival. Thanksgiving has been celebrated nationally on and off since 1789,

 after Congress requested a proclamation by George Washington. It has been celebrated as a federal holiday every year since 1863,

 The event that Americans commonly call the "First Thanksgiving" was celebrated by

 the Pilgrims after their first harvest in the New World in October 1621. This feast lasted three days,

and—as accounted by attendee Edward Winslow it was attended by 90 Native Americans and 53 Pilgrims.

The New England colonists were accustomed to regularly celebrating "thanksgivings"—days of prayer thanking God for blessings .

Thanksgiving is a date to be with the family. Thanksgiving in New York is synonymous with parade, and tasty dinner and of course your favorite wine!

At dinner the most traditional dish is the roasted turkey

or baked. It is filled and accompanied with other tasty things.

  like the cornbread, the cranberry sauce, the green beans, the mashed gravy (which is a sauce made from the juice of the turkey)

  and some other depending on the area.

  The dessert is the pumpkin pie, although it is also common to prepare the apple pie.
