For Halloween You Dress Up in Female Pirates Costume

How many times did you play cowboys and Indians as a child? Did you really ever play this game? I have to admit that I never did. Sure, I dressed up like a cowboy in my female pirates costumes, but there was no one there to play with. My brothers were always off doing their own thing. Maybe that’s why I enjoyed Halloween so much. This is when I got to really show off my out fit and gun twirling talents. I loved to tote around one of those old-school pop-metal cap guns. Remember the ones that ran off the roles of paper caps? Those babies were awesome. You could actually hold down the trigger and snap the hammer back repeatedly with your opposite hand; just like in the old westerns. I did this redundantly.

The Humble Beginnings of Santa Clause
Christmas , Culture / August 4, 2008

It seems that children wonder about Santa Clause during Christmas. It all goes back to a legend that can be traced back hundreds of years to a monk named St. Nicholas. It is believed that Nicholas was born sometime around 280 A.D. in Patara, near Myra in modern-day Turkey. He is very much admired due to his kindness and humility. One of the best known of the St. Nicholas stories is that he saved three poor sisters from being sold into slavery or prostitution by their father by providing them with a dowry so that they could be married. He became well known to many people as protector of children and sailors. In our time, St. Nicholas transformed into Santa Clause, the ageless, timeless, deathless white-bearded man who gives out gifts on Christmas. He also popularly depicted on Christmas Cards and also on Humorous Christmas Cards. Bookmark and Share: Tags: Christmas, santa clause
