HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Thought for the day….” If you cannot see the bright side of life, polish the dull side”.

Did you know that the world’s largest and biggest Christmas present  is the Statue of Liberty. France gave the United States the Statue of Liberty in 1886, or that all the gifts in the Twelve Days of Christmas verses would equal 364 gifts.  Santa Claus is based on a real person, St. Nikolas of Myra (also known as Nikolaos the Wonderworker, Bishop Saint Nicholas of Smyrna, and Nikolaos of Bari), who lived during the fourth century. Born in Patara (in modern-day Turkey), he is the world’s most popular non-Biblical saint, and artists have portrayed him more often than any other saint except Mary.

It is estimated that the single “White Christmas” by Irving Berlin is the best selling single of all time, with over 100 million sales worldwide.  In Canada, Santa Claus has his own postal zip code, H0H 0H0.  There are two islands in the world named ‘Christmas’. One in the Pacific ocean and the other in the Indian ocean.

And a different photo to end with….a ‘normal’ photograph of buildings and a blue sky given the editing treatment and a twirl effect.

HAPPY CHRISTMAS
