Reagan: Christmas Address, 1981

As a last minute addition to the Christmas posts here at the CH 2.0, here is the 1981 Christmas address of then President Ronald Reagan. Reagan actually stood for something, unlike the current occupant of the office of President of the United States. H/T: Weasel Zippers

Christmas Concert: The Three Tenors

As a part of the Christmas celebration at the CH 2.0, here is a concert featuring the Three Tenors, Luciano Pavarotti, Placido Domingo, and Jose Carreras.

Christmas 2013

Merry Christmas!  Here is the reason for the season, so to speak… 2:1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed. 2:2 (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) 2:3 And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city. 2:4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) 2:5 To […]

NORAD Tracks Santa: 2013

For over five decades, NORAD has tracked Santa for children all over the US, and now, the world. For more than 50 years, NORAD and its predecessor, the Continental Air Defense Command (CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight. The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the telephone number for children to call Santa. Instead of reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.” The Director of Operations at the time, Colonel Harry Shoup, had his staff check the radar for indications of Santa making his way south […]

The Green Mitten Mystery: A Christmas Story

Our friend and contributor, Don, has written a children’s Christmas Story.  He has graciously given the CH 2.0 permission to publish it here. One Thursday in December, on the first morning of the first snowfall of the Christmas Season, four kids were walking to school. They were three brothers named Jon, Roy, and Jake and their younger sister, Hope. Jon said, “It sure is cold, I wish it was warmer!” “I’m glad that it’s cold”, Hope replied. “Are you crazy?” “No I’m not!” Hope said, as she stamped her foot. Jake said, “Remember what Dad told us? The first snowfall […]

How about some nice holiday fun?  Here is Jeff Dunham and Peanut reading, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Enjoy folks!

Churchill’s Christmas Eve Address: December 24, 1941

I saw this, posted by Publius, at Big Government, and thought I would share it here.  We’re all facing struggles at this time, but in 1941, we were facing something darker.  To reflect that, here is Winston Churchill’s Christmas Eve address to the American people, dated December 24, 1941. I spend this anniversary and festival far from my country, far from my family, yet I cannot truthfully say that I feel far from home.  Whether it be the ties of blood on my mother’s side, or the friendships I have developed here over many years of active life, or the […]

PC Christmas: The Twelve Days of Winter

I caught this over at The Other McCain, and thought I’d share it here. It would be funnier if there weren’t a lot of PC truth to it.  And, by the way, I’m probably being “hyper-partisan” and raaaaacist for posting it.  So be it. Why don’t you join me and make this viral?

Sunday Links: Christmas Commercial Edition Revisited

Happy Sunday everyone! We’re going to continue our Christmas theme for the link post. Last week, we had a collection of Christmas songs, in the week prior to that, we had some vintage Christmas commercials. I’m going to go back to the Christmas commercials and give you an entirely different set. This time, were to go farther back in time, as well as into the 90s into the 21st century. This is my favorite time of year, and I can literally not get enough of this stuff. I hope you feel the same way.   It is also perfect opportunity […]

Santa Declares Bankruptcy

I need capital! Santa Claus, founder and CEO of Santa Claus Industries, has announced that he will be filing for chapter 11. With liabilities of over 300,000 million and assets of only $1,245 Santa says that he really has no choice. “The business has changed” said Santa. It used to be I was the only game in town.  And I was younger and had a good time delivering presents to all the boys and girls.  But lately?  The competition from Amazon is killing me.  And I’m older too. Last year I wasn’t able to finish Christmas until December 27th.  I […]

Christmas Carols: Four Guys and One Piano

I saw this over at Kim Komando’s place, and thought it was interesting. It features one piano, and four guys, playing  Christmas carols.  Take a look for yourself… This was done by the Piano Guys, and you can visit their site as well.   

The Most Metal Christmas Carol Ever? You be the Judge!

I caught this metal version of a Christmas Carol over at the Kim Komando website. She claims to be the most metal Christmas Carol of all time, but I’ll leave that judgment in your capable hands. Here’s the video.
