    ducks from asian owned grocery stores even if they're frozen tend to have there heads and feet attached still, nor do they write on the package how many lbs they are each.

    Sharon (Hebrew: שָׁרוֹן,) is a female name that can be spelled with one "r" or two.

    In some countries (like Israel), Sharon is a unisex name and it means "forest" in Hebrew.

    Many of the most popular Christmas carols are composed by Americans including:

    The Christmas Song, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, Winter Wonderland, White Christmas, Frosty the Snowman, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, The Little Drummer Boy, Silver Bells, Feliz Navidad, and many more.
    If bees did go extinct, we could always hire people to dress up as bees and pollinate flowers with tiny feather dusters. Sure it'd be more expensive, but there are also millions of idle teens.

    But Carol of the Bells is from the Ukraine. Yeah a lot of our celebrated carols were composed in late 19th and early 20th century, by people like Burl Ives and Bing Crosby. I didn't know about Feliz Navidad though, seems Mexican.

    @Marmotini Feliz Navidad was written by the great New Yorker/Puerto Rican Jose Feliciano. Puerto Ricans are Americans.

    I still haven't seen it yet; it's on my 'to do' list.
    Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

    "It's a Wonderful Life" was a box office bomb for RKO, losing over half a million dollars.
