  • 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.

Does anyone have any christmas blown mold for sale in the FL area.

I don't know what you are willing to pay but here are a few in Florida. They proably still have them because they are higher than what I would normally pay.

You might just give this one a call and see if anything is left.

Also the Restore Habitat for Humanity store in Casselberry (near Orlando) has a Santa and a Reindeer but it's not posted online anywhere. Maybe call them and get a better description or even a picture sent to you.

THREE WISE MEN SET CHRISTMAS NATIVITY PIECES

Local Pick up only. Lebanon, Tennessee

http://www.ebay.com/...5#ht_3489wt_974

I just now stumbled upon this auction on Ebay. It ends in approx.16 hours. So far, there are not any bids.

Starting bid is only 99 cents, so I just HAD to post here hoping someone can get these 3 items for a steal.

I have never bought from the Ebayer selling them, so I can't offer any input about that, but according to Ebay, their feedback score is 98.7, based on almost 199,000 feedbacks..

My apologies if I didn't post this correctly. I've never posted an outside ad like this on here and with the auction ending so soon, I didn't want to waste time trying to read how to do it. The most important thing was to try to find these a home. LOL :-)

Have a great Christmas !!

Try Garden Ridge and Kmart. Those are about it in the South. Try to attend some of the mini PLUS events next summer.
