  • 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.

DaveMal, Timpwk and cars06,

 

LOVE all three of your nativities, I love the way you spread them out in the display. Only thing I wish was that the cows, sheep and donkey's cords came out of the bottom instead of their backs so you could hide them in the display instead of seeing the cord coming up out of the back.

It's been a good long while since I posted here.  Since I was last here, I have gotten out of the blowmold game and into commercial size decorations, particularly the Bronner's Exclusive Lifesize Nativity Scene.  Here are pictures of my 2016 display.  I had to have the 3 Magi and the Baby Jesus refurbished this year, so they'll look a little different for 2017.

Here is a link to the Facebook page dedicated to my display:
