Christmas Costumes

  1. Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

    Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!
    ChristmasChristmas music is a lot like Marmite, you either love it or you hate it and here at Hollywood, we certainly do love it! Our stores will be blaring festive music all season long, so get on board and make your own Christmas playlists. There are literally thousands of festive tunes to get you through the winter. If Classical is your cup of tea then there are traditional carols galore to relax to by the fire. For something nice and soothing try the gentle voice of Bing Crosby with “White Christmas”.  If you like your music a little funkier then you’re in need of some 80’s pop holiday hits from the likes of Slade. You can’t even be too metal to like Christmas music as there are hundreds of metal covers and even some original tracks too like Twisted Sister “Heavy Metal Christmas” which is a play on the 12 days of Christmas. Here are our top 10 Christmas songs: Bobby Helms “Jingle Bell Rock” So this song might make you think of Mean Girls or even that “adult” version but put that out of your mind, because this is the original and best! Every line of this song just shouts Christmas and we all know it’s one you can dance to. The repetition and simplicity of this song make it so catchy that you can’t help sing it all season long. Bing Crosby “Winter Wonderland” That beautifully smooth voice and catchy tune make this is a song you can listen to all winter long without the guilt of dragging out the Christmas songs. This is a tune that makes you feel warm inside, like any good Christmas song should. A must have to any festive playlist.Christmas Mariah Carey “All I Want For Christmas Is You” What do you get for the lady who has everything? You, apparently! A beautiful message that all you need is love at Christmas time and sung by the lovely Madame Carey too, what’s not to like? We all know that this song gets sung in jest to friends and co-workers at the office party more than eligible lovers, it is just a great feel good Christmas anthem that you have to love! Slade “Merry Xmas Everybody” Now, this is a good Christmas tune in its own right, but we all listen to it in anticipation of hearing singer, Noddy Holder, shriek “It’s Christmaaaaaaaaaas” We always get it wrong, we know we do, but we like to play the game (SPOILER: It’s at the very end of the song) It’s a typically British song, perfect for a good old fashion British Christmas.

  4. Get to Know Your Christmas Characters

    Mr and Mrs Claus   Deluxe Regency Plush Santa SuitYou may call Mr Claus, Santa Claus (his full name), or Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Kris Cringle, or perhaps just simply Santa. This is the main man, the myth, the legend of the Christmas period. So what do we know about him? He brings gifts to the homes of every good child on 24th December. The modern Santa Claus is a combination of the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas whose name came from Saint Nicholas (a Greek bishop and gift giver). It is then thought that this figure then absorbed elements of the god Odin during the Christianisation of Germanic Europe. God Odin was associated with the Germanic pagan midwinter event known as Yule and led a Wild Hunt described as a ghostly procession through the sky. Traits of this historical character mixed with the British folklore character of Father Christmas resulting in our modern day internationally recognised Santa Claus. Since the 20th century and largely down to ‘Santa Claus is Coming to Town’ (1934) Santa Claus is thought to make a list of good and bad children. He has a team of elves that help him make and deliver the presents on Christmas Eve and has a workshop that is hidden in the North Pole – especially from non-believers Continue reading →
