  • Christmas 2017 countdown has begun. Most people reveal their displays the day after Thanksgiving. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.

  9. Why I mainly use Pro lights

    I have been doing silicone at the ends under the end caps for years, at least 8 now LOL!!! I really, really don't think that's the case, because its happen 3 times, with only these lights, not any others Ive ever used. Plus on the last two sets they were both in use , the first maybe 3 weeks, the second set prolyy 1 1/2 -2 months, and on top of it, I cant see how the connectors would become loose with all the tape holding it together.
  10. LOR Sequencing

    Which software am I supposed to use to set up a sequence? I download the free version to test it out first but do not know which one I am supposed to use for it and how I would draw my house/yard with everything in it? Any tips or guides. I am apparently slow and cannot figure out where to start at. THANKS!!!

  12. Why I mainly use Pro lights

    Looks like the connector wasn't making a good connection with the wires inside the rope light and caused it to arc and burn.
