WEFOUNDOld Christmas By Washington Irving


The Chestnut Hill East Train Station is located in a suburb of Philadelphia, PA, that it is named after. The Commuter Station is situated about eight-miles northwest of the City Center at the intersection of 58 Newton Street and the Bethlehem Pike. The Chestnut Hill West Station services the other side of the wealthy and historic enclave….

  After noting the reader interest in a recent post about Spindizzies and Tether Cars, and a photo of an operating model airplane, for today’s feature we turn to miniature car models and a pair of 1960s videos. Many of us when we were younger collected and played with the distinctive and well-made Matchbox Models made in the United Kingdom….

We have looked into the two-way causeway to South Padre Island, Texas, previously and efforts to promote tourism beginning in the late-1920s. The two endeavors were stalled by the Great Depression and a hurricane in 1933 that wiped out the raised wooden road. Today’s lead image shows another method used to transport automobiles out to…

Even after coming up with 101 Operation Christmas Child shoe box ideas for Samaritan’s Purse, I’m sure there are lots of things that I didn’t list, but at least this will get you started. I have packed boxes with my kids for many years, but this year, I will be packing my boxes so much differently.

This year, my heart will remember the many box openings that I was blessed to witness firsthand when I went to Ecuador with OCC last February. I’ll see those beautiful faces and truly joyful smiles of the children I met as I fill each box. Please know that these boxes mean so much to the children and their families. They really do.

Santa Claus is generally depicted as a portly, joyous, white- bearded man—sometimes with spectacles —wearing a red coat with white fur collar and cuffs, white-fur-cuffed red trousers, a red hat with white fur and black leather belt and boots and who carries a bag full of gifts for children. This image became popular in the United States and Canada in the 19th century due to the significant influence of the 1823 poem " A Visit from St. Nicholas " and of caricaturist and political cartoonist Thomas Nast . [2] [3] [4] This image has been maintained and reinforced through song, radio, television, children's books, films, and advertising.

Santa Claus is said to make lists of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior ("good" and "bad", or "naughty" and "nice") and to deliver presents, including toys, and candy to all of the well-behaved children in the world, and coal to all the misbehaved children, on the single night of Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this feat with the aid of his elves , who make the toys in his workshop at the North Pole , and his flying reindeer , who pull his sleigh. [5] [6] He is commonly portrayed as living at the North Pole , and often laughing in a way that sounds like "ho ho ho".

Saint Nicholas of Myra was a 4th-century Greek Christian bishop of Myra (now Demre ) in Lycia , a province of the Byzantine Empire , now in Turkey. Nicholas was famous for his generous gifts to the poor, in particular presenting the three impoverished daughters of a pious Christian with dowries so that they would not have to become prostitutes. [7] He was very religious from an early age and devoted his life entirely to Christianity. In continental Europe (more precisely the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, the Czech Republic and Germany) he is usually portrayed as a bearded bishop in canonical robes.
