Greetings Dearest Online
Family and Friends: We at Arious Entertainment hope you are
enjoying the wonderful Christmas Season, and we extend wishes of Joy and
joyousness of this sparkling season is just at its peak, because Christmas
is only 2 days away. And you must agree that there is something extra special
about the majesty and miracle of it all…right?
This historical celebration of peace and good will brings true and
permanent joy to all our hearts as we spend time reflecting, sharing,
toasting, giving, rejoicing…laughing…talking and enjoying every
special moment with our loved ones, and close friends!
yeah...this magical time of year fills us with a sense of joy and
merriment, which engulfs our entire being.
Indeed it is truly a time for GIVING, spreading good cheer,
reverence, LOVE, forgiveness and gratitude.
This lovely season (CHRISTMAS) is THE SEASON OF HOPE, and the true
meaning of the SEASON IS FAMILY [In my Opinion.]
Therefore, one must exhibit unconditional LOVE, plus reflect and
give Thanks for their families; as well as for all they have, and have accomplished.
Oh yes, family! I
can just imagine how super exciting it must be for the families of the soldiers,
and even the soldiers who have returned home from Iraq. The
feeling of euphoria must be filling their souls this 2011 Christmas
Woo'hoo'...the joy of this season! Of which, for the 2nd year I am not feeling. However, this
morning while running errands; my husband Todd turned the radio to
a local station that only plays Christmas carols during this season (97.1
FM); and I got a little tingling of something. In fact, I found
myself singing along with the artists; so clearly I felt something.
As for the scenery around me---hmmm, the soft glow of the lighted exquisite decorations in
my home simply calms me after a long day.
And during the walks with the pet at night, I am mesmerized by the
decorated yards and homes of our neighbors…marveling at the hard work
they have put into making their homes sparkle.
Ahhh, the kindness that is exhibited during this time is awe
aspiring; and the greetings are amazingly genuine. Sometimes,
I wish this season last the entire year...LOL!
that Christmas is a global celebration; obviously traditions and customs
may change from place to place. However,
the festive spirit is the same all around the world. Without a doubt
since Christmas is only 2 days away many of you are busy preparing [hard]
to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas in your own varied and
whichever way you celebrate, we at Arious Entertainment Group (AEG)
sincerely wish you a very happy, healthy and joyful
holiday. All of us at AEG hope you have the special opportunity to spend some
quality time with your family and friends; relaxing and preparing for a

year I have taken the time to point out how the different cultures celebrate the meaning
of Christmas…the joy of Christmas; and how it is done in their
special and unique ways. This year I will continue with my yearly tradition [which
you will find below], and I am hopeful you will read, learn and enjoy!
many the religious significance is the true and deeper meaning of
Christmas, and that Jesus Is The Reason
For The Season!! Yes, it is said the
true meaning of Christmas - A time of God showing his great love for
all mankind, and most importantly the celebration of the birth of the
Christ Child "Jesus."
“Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings
of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior,
which is Christ The Lord. Ad
this shall be a sign unto you; ye shall find the babe wrapped in
swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” –Luke 2:10-12.

Christmas - God
sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great
joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the
excitement of knowing about this great event. They knew this was no
ordinary baby. The prophets had told of His coming hundreds of years
before. The star stopped over Bethlehem just to mark the way for those who
were looking for this special child. This special child took the form of
man to make it easier for us to love him, and because of love for him we
love our fellow men. Click the following link to read more: details http://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/devotions/noebel_meaningofchristmas.aspx).

true meaning Christmas" Luke 2: 4-19 says: (Courtesy of CBN.net: http://www.cbn.com)
"So Joseph also went up from
the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David,
because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to
register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting
a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and
she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and
placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
And there were shepherds living out
in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel
of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be
afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the
people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is
Christ the Lord.
This will be a sign to you: You will
find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger." Suddenly a
great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God
"Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his
When the angels had
left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another,
"Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which
the Lord has told us about." So they hurried off and found Mary and
Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him,
they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child,
and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But
Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart."

Hanukkah - Hanukkah
begins every year during this special season on the 25th of the Jewish
Month of "Kisley and is celebrated for eight days and nights.
Therefore, this year Hanukkah began on December 20th at sundown and ends
on December 28, 2011.
The Festival of
is the most widely celebrated American Jewish holiday, possibly because it
is a fun, child-centered occasion. It is celebrated with excellent food,
exchanging gifts, and lighting beautiful menorahs (special Hanukkah
candelabras) filled with brightly colored candles. Unlike some of the
other Jewish holidays, which require intense spiritual reflection or
it is easy to celebrate.
Many Jewish holidays commemorate events invested with historical and
religious meaning, and Hanukkah is no exception. Hanukkah
"rededication," and it commemorates the rededication of the
Temple in Jerusalem after its desecration by foreign forces. The
celebration also reaffirms the continuing struggle to live by God's
commandments and to lead Jewish lives.
When all is said and done, perhaps the most important message of Hanukkah
may be found in the name of the holiday itself: Dedication. When Jews have
dedicated themselves, through faith and action, to the pursuit of high
religious and human ideals, Judaism has been strong. That imperative, to
strengthen our religion and our people, remains an important challenge at
this season, in every generation.

Dr. Maulana Ron Karenga in 1966. Each day of Kwanzaa focuses on
Nguzo Saba, or the seven principles- "matunda ya kwanza" which
means first fruits, Kwanzaa is rooted in the first harvest celebrations
practiced in various cultures in Africa, and it seeks to (1) enforce a
connectedness to African cultural identity, (2) provide a focal point for
the gathering of African peoples, and (3) to reflect upon the Nguzo Saba,
or the seven principles, that have sustained Africans. Africans and
African - Americans of all religious faiths and backgrounds practice

"A Christmas Blessing"
During this Christmas season,
May you be blessed
With the spirit of the season,
which is peace,
The gladness of the season,
which is hope,
And the heart of the season,
which is love
Somehow, not only for Christmas
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you.
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart's possessing
Returns to you glad.

Oh dear, I want
to let so many of you know that I appreciate your feedback regarding my
thoughts of the Reggae Show we attended recently here in our area; which
featured Reggae Star “Richie Spice” and the overly
talented “Morgan Heritage”.
This NO band thing (Reggae Musicians singing to tracks) seems to not
only be affecting me; as well as the road the Reggae music taking;
including the disrespect to the fans, music and poor promotions of the
music (on a whole). This discussion I will have to "table"
this week; after all it's CHRISTMAS! However, I promise I will get
back to it; and share many of your thoughts, ideas, gripes/negatives,
positives, etc. As a matter of fact, I plan to get back on this
discussion during the 1st of the year.
I am truly happy that so many of our beloved soldiers have returned home
to their families; and will be spending Christmas with their loved
ones. Yes, indeed, President Barack Obama has been true to
his word regarding our soldiers being brought home in time for the
holidays. Oh, the joy this brings to my heart is absolutely amazing. I
know many families are extremely happy in America today. As for
the many who remained behind, especially in Aghanistan; may God Bless
them and keep them safe. I pray they too are returned home soon.
