Great Debates
Why can't a season of peace and goodwill go by without an argument? Whether we're talking the appropriateness of Christmas in the classroom or whether eggs can really go into eggnog it seems we have a lot to debate when it comes the Christmas. We're not afraid to tackle the thornier issues of the season. But we're surprised at how many Christmas controversies we have been able to dig up. In this new series, we get messy with all of them.

This is where we retell their stories on My Merry Christmas -- and how we contribute in growing their legend in our time.

Christmas Traditions
Christmas is full of wonderful and unique traditions. But where did they come from and why do we persist in perpetuating some of them? It is easy to see why we kiss under the mistletoe, for example. But who came up with egg nog and why? Just what is wassail? When did caroling begin? Here we explore the why behind the wonderful traditions of Christmas.

Christmas Music
Music is the one language in common across all lands. Every society in some way uses music to communicate emotion, to convey feeling and to tell the stories of legend. We worship through song. We celebrate through song. And when it comes to making merry at Christmas, music naturally plays a central part. Christmas music is a tradition.

Christmas Stories
Christmas is the most magical time of the year -- the holiday itself centers around the most wonderous story ever told. This story has inspired countless other stories of holiday miracles. Long before the advent of motion pictures and television, the magic of Christmas was shared with the world through the written word of such classics as O. Henry's Gift of the Magi and Dicken's A Christmas Carol. In the spirit of those classic Christmas tales, we proudly present this collection of original Christmas stories. We hope that these stories brighten your holiday and help you to rediscover the spirit of Christmas... when miracles happen and dreams come true.

The North Pole
Santa Claus is beloved by millions of people around the world. In almost every land, his legend is spread through local traditions of warm, selfless giving and the sharing of holiday merriment. He is magic. Even kids who have grown a little long in the tooth sense the wonder of Santa and remain curious of exactly who he is, where he lives and how he remains so cherished with each passing season. My Merry Christmas is pleased to bring you the Internet's largest collection of original North Pole features with all the answers to your deepest questions -- direct from the North Pole!

Elf Ed Zachary
He is not your every day elf. He is a little cantankerous, a little edgy and sometimes a bit, well, impatient. He is also absolutely brilliant. When the more dubious kids out there ask the really tough questions, nobody can explain the mysteries of Santa Claus better than Elf Ed. As Ed likes to say, when you want it Ed Zachary right, he's your guy. But we must warn you. Elf Ed doesn't pull any punches. We wouldn't recommend getting smart with him. He's very old. And he doesn't like people who think they are smarter than he is. Elf Ed writes regular columns for the North Pole Gazette. We reprint a few classics here every year.

Santa Sightings
Believe it or not, there are still people in the world who just don't believe in Santa Claus. For you skeptics, here are actual stories of real, close encounters with Santa Claus. We have asked everyone from NASA to the FBI to validate these claims from our readers. But almost all of them have said you'd never believe it unless you saw it for yourself. We report, you decide.
