When Christmas trees were no longer trees

A few years ago some cities began to dispense with the "Christmas tree" to place metal or plastic structures with a certain air of Christmas tree, read with conical or triangular shapes. Sometimes it is to offer an aspect of modernity, in other to facilitate their management (is removed and the following year remounted), in others by the tourist attraction to power Christmas ornament boasts the world's highest, impossible to achieve with a natural tree. This year has come to light that transition following the holiday structure of Grand Place in Brussels, which has replaced the traditional natural Christmas tree placed annually.

Potatoes wrapped in bacon

Ingredients:  8 slices of bacon cut  1 stick butter  5 large potatoes  1 pinch of salt

Preparation To begin preparing such delicious miniature potatoes, the first thing to do is peel the five major units you own and bring them to boil for a few minutes, or at least until the potatoes are soft, smooth and with the right consistency. After the potatoes are boiled, place a bar of butter in a large bowl and placing of a potato at a time, mash with the shredder, but I recommend using just a fork. Then continue adding other units until it achieves a consistent mash.Ah! And do not forget to add a pinch of salt. Certainly Christmas is a great recipe! Good appetite and Merry Christmas! :)

History life

It's the most endearing Christmas. But Father Christmas, or Santa Claus, is a figure very recent, daughter of two writers' imagination Yorkers, granddaughter of the Dutch devotion wandering, and real thanks to a satirical and advertising for Coca-Cola.

The figure of Santa Claus was built on that of St. Nicholas, the fourth century Turkish bishop whose myth and cult spread throughout medieval Europe.

Since the middle of the XIII century, St. Nicholas Day focused on children gifts.

A satirical cartoonist, Thomas Nast, between 1863 and 1886, gradually created the basic image of Santa Claus through his illustrations published in Harper's magazine.

First Santa Claus designed for Coca-Cola Image of Santa Claus with the grandchildren of the painter

The appearance of a retired salesman named Lou Prentice Sundblom was the basis to create, in his oil paintings between 1931 and 1966 - the modern figure of Santa Claus, Christmas advertising popularized by Coca-Cola and American cinema. The painter portrayed his own children and grandchildren in advertisements and Prentice's death, added to the face of Santa Claus their own Nordic features.
