  1. Its almost christmas and one of the best things about it are the X-mas Trees right? they are a beacon of joy and as soon as you see them rising among the houses of your hood you know that is THAT time of the year, it feels nice. So I say lets share them, I always love to go to my friends houses and see how each one decorates and light them, so I hope I can see my brony pals trees. Here is mine -.0 is not big and fancy as others but is MY christmas tree and that makes him awesome.

  5. Self explanatory. Im getting an iPad Mini for christmas! Yay! I've always wanted an Ipad.. What are you guys getting for christmas?
  6. In my opinion, during (what I think is) the right time, Christmas music is a wonderful thing. It feels super nice to listen to, and I like the lyrics and melody to many of the songs. They're so jolly, unlike the normal music that you would hear on the radio for most of the year. When do you start to listen to it? I like to listen to it as soon as November starts. Halloween is over, and (I'm American) Thanksgiving isn't a huge enough holiday to have large priority over Christmas, so why not. Anywhere earlier though I find pretty questionable.
  7. Post whatever you recieve this holiday season! I got an early present- What did you get?
  8. So, I was just wondering if anyone remembers the movie, or episode, as it used to be on Netflix, and me and my family always used to watch it every Christmas. (I'm not sure what generation it was) side topic: anyone noticed in the US, it says on MLP: FIM that it's available until August 31st?
  9. So I've been seeing the Making Christmas Merrier campaign going on for a while now and I've personally been feeling sad that I can't contribute to it since I'm a high school student with no money. Because of this, I've decided to make a thread where we can share other good things we're doing for others this Christmas(and beyond!) as well as share ideas on things we can do. As a note, this thread is for everybody and not just those who aren't able to donate. Also, it's not supposed to make anyone feel guilty for not donating. I guess I'll start with saying that I've been trying to be really friendly with someone who's only recently started coming to my church and seems really shy. So what are you ponies doing this Christmas to make Christmas merrier?
  10. I am a big proponent of honesty. I believe that honesty is the bedrock foundation for all relationships--the "master virtue", if you will. In fact, I believe that healthy personal relationships cannot exist if dishonesty is involved. I am even opposed to so called "white lies", and believe that they are corrosive to personal relationships in subtle ways. This doesn't mean that I think people should openly broadcast every thought they have to everyone, á la The Invention of Lying. It's perfectly acceptable to choose not to share certain things. Sometimes it's appropriate to do what I call "Vulcan lying", or the selective presenting and/or withholding of information without actually telling any falsehoods. Another way to describe this would be not lying, but not showing all your cards, either. Now, it's still wrong to deceive people in this way, but it's perfectly acceptable to simply decline to answer a question that you don't want to. When it comes to personal relationships, I believe in complete transparency. Essentially, I view lying as being on the same continuum as violence. In other words, lying should only be done in defensive situations that might require violence if all else fails. If you are in danger, you might try lying your way out before resorting to force. If you are suspicious of someone and think they might mean you harm, then you obviously aren't going to give them honest answers that they could use to hurt you. The colorful example I always like to give is if you're sheltering Anne Frank in your basement and the Nazis come a-knockin', you sure as hell aren't gonna tell 'em the truth. Sometimes, lying is clearly the only ethical thing to do. But under normal circumstances with people you trust and care about, I believe that lying should never have a place. Now that you understand where I come down on the subject of lying, I'll get to the point. I believe that we should stop telling our kids that Santa Claus is literally real when they are little. I believe the myth of Santa is unnecessary at best, and downright harmful at worst. It's something that we need to outgrow. When I float this idea by people, the first counter-argument I hear is that by ending this myth, we would be robbing children of the joy and magic of Christmas, sucking the fun out of their lives, and killing their childhood. This is demonstrably false. Children do not need to think that Santa is real in order for Christmas to be fun and magical. Children need no extra incentives beyond reality in order to get excited. Children seem to do a pretty darn good job at getting excited by My Little Pony, Batman, Spider-Man, Transformers, Disney Princesses, Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc, without thinking for a second that any of these things are real. In fact, parents typically take great care to make sure that their children know the difference between reality and what they see on TV and in movies. It's universally agreed upon that to be confused in this regard can be dangerous and harmful to children. We reassure our children that the monsters in movies can't really get them, and that they, our children, cannot fly like they see superheroes doing. Then we turn around and tell them that one jolly fat man can defy the laws of time and physics and do the things they see in movies. Surely I can't be the only one to see a problem here. Circling back, children need no extra help to get excited about these fictional characters. In fact, children tend to get head-over-heels obsessed with fictional characters, and the fun isn't sucked out just because the characters aren't literally real. I can personally attest to the fact that I was far more excited about Batman, Ninja Turtles, and lightsabers as a kid than I was about Santa Claus, but I never thought that those other things were real. Christmas needs no help to be fun. It can stand on its own without supernatural aid. Decorating, yummy treats, and piles of toys are more than enough to make any child excited. More importantly, though, I believe that telling young children falsehoods about Santa can be harmful in a variety of ways. I believe that it can prime young minds to be less skeptical, more gullible, and less apt to think critically. Now, admittedly, this is just a hypothesis, and I have no specific evidence to back it up. What I do have solid evidence for is the following: the Santa myth can actually be frightening to children, as well as cause their trust in their parents to be shaken. When I was very young, and believed in Santa, I used to be scared at the thought of him creeping around our house. It didn't matter to me that he was just supposed to be the jolly gift-giver. To me, he was a stranger, and I didn't like the idea of a stranger in my home. In our house, it was traditional for stockings to be placed on the foot of our beds. My parents would sneak into my room when I was asleep to do this, but what they didn't know is that I was often still awake. They had told me that it was Santa that came into my room, and this idea scared me. I would squeeze my eyes closed and tense with fear until the intruder had gone. Why I never thought to approach them about this, I can't say. Evidently, young children do not have the presence of mind to explain or interpret such things. They simply accept what they're told. Parents can be frightening their children with this myth without even realizing it. When I reached the age of doubt, I asked my mother point blank, and she told me the truth. I remember this conversation very vividly. It was in the car before she dropped me off at school. When I realized that they had lied to me about Santa and where the gifts came from, I was bewildered, confused, and frustrated. I was actually angry with them. And hurt. I trusted them, and I felt like they had betrayed that trust. Most people dismiss the entire Santa issue. They just wave it away, claiming that it's harmless fun. But for some kids, it's not so harmless. I actually felt hurt. I couldn't believe that my parents had lied to me. I felt confused, and began to reevaluate other things they had told me. Could I be absolutely sure that there hadn't been any other lies? My trust in them had been shaken, and it took me a little while to fully get over it. How long, I couldn't say. More than a month, less than a couple of years. I can't be any more accurate than that. I just don't remember. But I do remember feeling very upset for awhile. And let me be clear: I wasn't upset that Santa wasn't real--I was upset that I had been lied to by the people I trusted the most. Now, looking back on it at 33 years old, it seems rather silly, of course. I know my parents are honest and trustworthy, and I have a great relationship with them. I know they weren't being unethical, deceitful people; they were just going along with the cultural tradition because it's what their parents did, and it seemed fun and harmless. But we need to wake up and realize that a child's perspective is different, and some children don't handle it as well as others. It may surprise some readers to hear that every single one of my friends had similarly unpleasant experiences regarding Santa Claus, and their learning of the truth. None of them, not one, remembers it fondly. They all have negative stories to tell, just like me. One friend of mine was a very interesting case--he was actually relieved when he found out that Santa wasn't real. This was because he thought that Santa watched him all year long (as the song goes), and that if he did something wrong, even accidentally, Santa wouldn't bring him any presents. He was scared and paranoid all year because of this. When he learned that it was his parents that bought the gifts, he was relieved because he knew that his parents' love was unconditional, and they would forgive him for mistakes, and still bring him presents. People might not realize that children think this deeply about things. Well, live and learn. I simply see no upside to filling children's heads with this confusing nonsense. It can be harmful, and I guarantee that children will have all the fun in the world without it. I am given to understand that the Santa myth is not commonplace in other parts of the world as it is here in the U.S. I know someone from Europe who said that no one ever thought Santa was real in her home country. Parents just didn't do that where she grew up. But Christmas was still fun and figuratively magical for them. She moved to the U.S. when she was still a child and was completely blindsided when she found that her schoolmates literally believe in this dude with flying reindeer and elves from the north pole. Her parents had to sit her down and explain how some cultures do this nutty stuff. As usual, the United States, while seemingly ahead in certain ways, such as having freedom of speech enshrined in our constitution, is also sorely lacking in reason, rationality, and logic. To be blunt, America is bat crap crazy in some regards. Let's stop telling our children that Santa is real. Just let it be a fun fantasy--a fairly tale, just like any movie they'd watch or book they'd read. The same goes for the Easter bunny, the tooth fairy, or any other made up nonsense we tell kids. If you are a new parent, or plan on becoming one, I highly encourage you to be honest with your children. And telling yourself that it's harmless because you're giving them the gift of fun and magic is just self-delusion; it's still lying, and it's still wrong. Together, let's end the Santa mythos.
  11. Last time, on the 17th of December, we had our guest Bowl Licker over. He caused some ruckus, but no-where near as the current one will cause no doubt. But if you want to know more about Bowl Licker, click here. Today, comes my favorite Yule lad, who is none other, but Door Slammer himself. Oh yeah, I think his name says everything there is to know about him. He. Likes. To. Slam. Doors!! Especially at night, that asshole xD The seventh was Door Slammer, a sorry, vulgar chap: When people in the twilight would take a little nap I would ask you to stay tuned for the next Yule lad who arrives tomorrow on the 19th, but because I am going to Portugal today , I won't be around :). So this will have to do for now, so check out this link for the rest of the Yule lads and happy Yule everybody
  12. Last time, on the 16th of December, we hat Pot-Scraper visiting town Check him out here . But today we will be meeting Bowl Licker (Askasleikir in Icelandic), I think his name should be quite obvious. He hides under beds and waits for people to put down a special bowl known as "Askur" (a bowl with a lid on it) down and then he steals it and eats whatever he finds down there.... hopefully if it is edible. Bowl Licker, the sixth one, was shockingly ill bred. From underneath the bedsteads he stuck his ugly head. Stay tuned for the next Yule lad who arrives tomorrow on the 18th of December and let me tell you, he is a personal favorite of mine ;D
  13. Last time, we had Spoon-Licker stay over with us. Check him out here. Aaaaaand today comes the arrival of our fifth Yule lad, Pot-Scraper (Pottaskefill). He steals pots and scrapes for leftovers in them to eat. What a guy indeed :'D Pot Scraper, the fifth one, was a funny sort of chap. When kids were given scrapings, he´d come to the door and tap Stay tuned for our next Yule lad who arrives tomorrow on the 17th of December
  14. As always, another Yule lad visits town and this time it is Spoon Licker. Our last one was Stubby, be sure to check him out~ Our fourth one is Spoon Licker (Þvörusleikir in Icelandic). He steals wooden spoons known as "þvörur" and he licks whatever is left on it. He is extremely thin due to malnutrition xD The fourth was Spoon Licker; like spindle he was thin. He felt himself in clover when the cook wasn´t in. The next Yule lad will arrive tomorrow on the 16th
  15. It is time for our next Yule lad. Our last one was Gully Gawk who you can see in this blog. Today on December the 14th comes Stúfur (Stubby) visiting town and he is quite the little fella! He likes to hide, using his small size and he will find pans to steal and scrape off any food leftovers he can find to eat. Stubby was the third called, a stunted little man, who watched for every chance to whisk off a pan. Stay tuned for the next Yule Lad who arrives on the 15th

  17. Well hello there people of all ages, boys and girls . This blog is about Santa Clauses. Now, many of you may be familiar with your own type of Santa Claus from your own region. However, here in Iceland, we in fact have 13 Santa Clauses, who arrive separately each night from December the 11th to December 24th, when the last one comes to town. And then they all start departing from town, one by one until January the 6th . Today, the Yulelads are known for being kind, bearing gifts to good children who behave, if they put their shoes by the window. However, naughty children get a potatoe, so that they will be encouraged to do more good in the future, for only kindness and goodwill is rewarded. But the yulelads did not use to be this way, once in the distant past, they were my country's biggest troublemakers during the Christmas season. Each of them had their own way of terrorizing the populace. Their mother and father and even their cat were no different, being one of the worst you could run into. Still today, children must be good and not be naughty, otherwise their mother Grýla, who is a big troll, will come with her sack, collect all the naughty children and then go back home with them and eat them. So remember, be nice or Grýla will eat you. The Yulecat is not a really nice creature either. If somebody does not get new pair of cloths for Christmas, the yulecat will eat those people, for not wearing good new cloths (our culture is a bit brutal and weird). But these blogs will be focusing on each Yulelad as they come seperately. So let us start with introducing them as a collective, shall we? Let me tell the story of the lads of few charms, who once upon a time used to visit our farms. They came from the mountains, as many of you know, in a long single file to the farmsteads below. Grýla was their mother - she gave them ogre milk - and the father Leppalúdi; a loathsome ilk. They were called the Yuletide lads - at Yuletide they were due - and always came one by one, not ever two by two. Thirteen altogether, these gents in their prime didn´t want to irk people all at one time. Creeping up, all stealth, they unlocked the door. The kitchen and the pantry they came looking for. They hid where they could, with a cunning look or sneer, ready with their pranks when people weren´t near. And even when they were seen, they weren´t loath to roam and play their tricks - disturbing the peace of the home. Now, the first one who comes today, would be Sheep-Cote Clod (Stekkjastaur in Icelandic) He is known for his stiff legs, not being able to bend them. He comes on the 11th of December, to harass sheep and steal all their milk The first of them was Sheep-Cote Clod. He came stiff as wood, to pray upon the farmer´s sheep as far as he could. (Stay tuned for more daily uploads of each Yulelad as the poem continues, if I miss out any days, I will make it up by including them all in one go Merry forward Christmas ) Next entry
  18. Post a photo of your Christmas tree!
  19. With the recent trailer showing and hinting that (with their version of Secret Santa being done among the Mane 6 and Spike) To me, this makes the most sense for the direction they are going with for this special. But hey, If I'm wrong, I'm wrong. Although I think I may be on the button or close to it. But what do you think? Did you agree with my speculation, or do you have a different speculation on who else got who. Let us know. God Bless.
  20. So during The Best Gift Ever Special, there's gonna be a Secret Santa thing going on between the Mane Six, Spike, and maybe Starlight, so in this blog we're gonna try to guess who is gonna be who's Secret Santa? Here's mine as an example: * Twilight Sparkle --> Pinkie Pie * Pinkie Pie --> Fluttershy * Fluttershy --> Rarity * Rarity --> Rainbow Dash * Rainbow Dash --> Spike * Spike --> Applejack * Applejack --> Twilight Sparkle If adding Starlight in it then: * Rarity --> Starlight Glimmer * Starlight Glimmer --> Rainbow Dash So this is my guess! It's not very likely to all of them right, but let's see if we could get some of them right! So what's your guesses? Try to keep it random! Try to do pairings that don't interact alot because that's more likely to happen!
  21. If there are any people who collection Christmas village or towns during the holidays I do during the holidays
  22. *blows away dust* Whoa, I guess it's been a while since I've done of these... Anyways, hey everypony, Woohoo here with another Musical Manslaughter, because you can't spell 'slaughter' without 'laughter' and these songs are jokes. Now I know it's been a long time since done one of these. It's mostly because I haven't found any songs that really make me angry. Then December arrived... and you know what means? Yep, it's that time of the year. For the most part, I like the holiday season... except for one thing, the music. The incessant overplaying of the same dozen-some songs and like 100 different versions of 'em in almost every public place, which drives me up a wall. While there are a few Christmas songs that I enjoy, there are some that I absolutely despise. For this entry, I'm going to tear into two of my most hated Christmas songs, one classical and one modern. Let's break it down. Let's start off with the classical Christmas song. This is a song that everyone and their great-great-great-great-grandmother knows... and that song is "The Twelve Days of Christmas." This is a random version of 12DOC I picked. Not hatin' on Bing Crosby All my life, I've never really understood this song and why it's so popular. I just don't know why. Alright, enough of my rambling, let's break it down. Since I don't want to waste too much of your time, I'm just gonna type the lyrics from the 12th day. On the twelfth day of Christmas My true love gave to me Twelve drummers drumming Eleven pipers piping Ten lords-a-leaping Nine ladies dancing Eight maids-a-milking Seven swans-a-swimming Six geese-a-laying Five golden rings Four calling birds Three French hens Two turtle doves And a partridge in a pear tree *inhales deeply* Where do I begin? Guess I'll start from day one ... and I will portray myself as a disgruntled boyfriend. 1. A Partridge in a Pear Tree: What the hell is this? All I wanted for Christmas was an iPhone and you give me a bird and a tree that require me to take care of? What's wrong with you?! I starting to question my love for you... 2. Two Turtle Doves: What? Now I have three birds to take of?! What's wrong with you?! You could've gotten me two turtles and I wouldn't complain, but no, you went for the birds again. 3. Three French Hens: At least these birds are edible but now that's six birds, SIX BIRDS I never wanted! That's it, I'm breaking up with you! 4. Four Calling Birds: That's ten birds now!! I need to file a restraining order against you. 5. Five Golden Rings: Wow, a gift that's not aviary related, although I'll probably just sell the rings so I can buy bird food. Maybe you're not so crazy after all... 6. Six Geese a-Laying: AW COME ON! Back to the birds again!?!?! Now I have sixteen birds squawking and shitting all over my house! And they are fucking too? What mental asylum did you break out of? 7. Seven Swans a-Swimming: Twenty... three... birds... and swans are assholes! Enough is ENOUGH! I have had it with these motherfucking birds in my motherfucking house! Seriously, which asylum?! 8. Eight Maids a-Milking: You finally stopped giving me birds, but now you're giving me people?! Also, what are they milking? Did they bring their own cows, too?! So now I have 23 birds, 8 cows (possibly), and 8 people. 9: Nine Ladies Dancing: Wait, where are you getting these people from? Unless... you're a human trafficker! I'm reporting you to the FBI! 10. Ten Lords a-Leaping: You mean like Sith Lords on a trampoline? Have you seen those guys? They don't look like the leaping type... 11. Eleven Pipers Piping: As if the birds squawking wasn't enough, now I have 11 more people playing the most obnoxious instrument in the universe! 12. Twelve Drummers Drumming: STOP THE MADNESS!!!!!1!11!1! ~*~*~*~ *inhales sharply... again* So let's go over all the gifts I've received. One pear tree One trampoline Five gold rings Eight cows (maybe?) Twenty three birds Fifty people ...And most of these things don't even relate to Christmas, especially the birds. Don't they fly south for winter? All I wanted was an iPhone and you give me all this shit. If your true love gives any of these things to you for Christmas, then he/she is an animal hoarding, human trafficking, noise polluting psychopath. My advice, break up with them, report them to the FBI, an have them committed to an insane asylum. As for my thoughts on the song, let me show you in .gif form... For my whole life, I never understood this song. This is not only one of the most nonsensical Christmas songs ever, but one of the most nonsensical songs ever! I know the 12 days represent the days between the birth of Jesus and the arrival of the Three Kings, but what do all those gifts mean? It's even more cryptic than "American Pie," which I already reviewed earlier this year. Whoever wrote this song must have been wasted on a few jugs of moonshine. It's also so damn repetitive. Hearing the same lyrics over and over is so tiring that I'm already bored by day four. Now for the final score... But I'm done yet. I have one more Christmas song to tear into... The final Christmas song I'm tearing into is from the wonderfully non-dystopian year of 1984, and that song is "Last Christmas" by Wham. This will be a doozy for me... let's break it down. Last Christmas, I gave you my heart But the very next day, you gave it away This year, to save me from tears I'll give it to someone special Really? That's how you want to open your song? With that lame-ass chorus. Like I said in a previous MMS, I'm not a fan of songs that start with the chorus. *sigh* Where do I begin with this... You gave me your heart? That's absolutely disgusting! That's almost as bad as all the birds and humans my ex gave me. Why would you give someone a vital organ for Christmas?! Speaking of vital, how the hell are you still alive?! "Stop being so literal, Woohoo. It's a metaphor. They just gave love to their partner for Christmas and they ignored it." Really? Love for Christmas? All I wanted was a damn iPhone! I may be forever alone single but shouldn't give your partner love like... everyday? No wonder they gave it away. That's enough on the chorus, onto the verses... Once bitten and twice shy I keep my distance but you still catch my eye Tell me, baby, do you recognize me? Well, it's been a year, it doesn't surprise me (Merry Christmas!) I wrapped it up and sent it With a note saying, "I love you, " I meant it Now, I know what a fool I've been But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again ~ A crowded room, friends with tired eyes I'm hiding from you, and your soul of ice My god, I thought you were someone to rely on Me? I guess I was a shoulder to cry on A face on a lover with a fire in his heart A man under cover but you tore me apart Now, I've found a real love you'll never fool me again You know, a thought just occurred to me. The more I listen to this song, the more I wonder: How is this even a Christmas song? There's nothing really Christmassy about this song other than a few uses of the word "Christmas" and the use of sleigh bells in the beat. To me, this song just feels like a lame breakup pop song you'd hear on the radio pretty much any time of the year. This is my unpopular opinion but I don't really consider "Last Christmas" to be a true Christmas song. It just doesn't have the Christmassy feeling that other Christmas songs have... at least the songs I like. Out of all the Christmas songs I hate, "Last Christmas" was the song I dreaded hearing the most. I can't stand hearing the original version by Wham or any damn version for this song. Even if an artist I liked covered it, I'd still hate it. In fact, there was a year in my life where I didn't want to celebrate Christmas because it would mean I would be hearing this song a bazillion times again. Yeah, those were dark times for me. So, do I still hate this song? Well, what do you think?! Now for the final score. Just a few points lower than "Twelve Days" but still bad. Lol, 69 And that concludes this entry of Musical Manslaughter. If you like these songs, that's fine. Hope you all have a Merry Christmas. Maybe next year, I'll get that iPhone...
  23. It is the holiday season and holiday movies are being played or promoted everywhere. Happens every year and for good reason, there are some great holiday flicks. One of my personal favorites, Polar Express, is a film I like to watch every year around the holidays. With each movie we are able to enjoy, comes perhaps movies we can't get into for whatever reason. For you, what are some holiday movies that are near impossible to get into and truly enjoy? For me, this is easy: A Christmas Story. A classic for many people and it takes place (but not filmed) in my state, that's cool. It isn't a bad movie by any means, but wow. It just...has so much friggin hype around it that I can't enjoy it really. A whole 24 hour marathon of the film is overkill to the max and it makes me tired of hearing about it. I also think the film is quite mean spirited but I suppose it pays off in the end. I just wish it wasn't so treated like a film above all else.
