  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. 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.

Adding an FM transmitter to a Gemmy holiday light show?

Recommended Posts

Hello I have a Gemmy holiday light show. When I am outside people always stop and say what radio station does the music come through? I hate having to tell them it only comes out of a speaker outside. I would like to add an FM transmitter to it. I would like to know if this can be done and if so which one is recommended? I would like to get it and hook it up as soon as possible so I would need to purchase it from a store. Thanks for all the help with all the other questions I have asked on Planet Christmas. You guys are all very helpful.

In place of the speaker, if it is a 3.5mm stereo plug, you can use a CCrane Digital FM transmitter. There is a mod, that you just have to Google for that will boost the power. On the other hand, just get a Y cable and plug your music into the Gemmy on lead, then plug the CCrane into the other lead and it should work like a champ. I would suggest that you look at getting a Light O Rama controller as you can do so much more with one than the Gemmy. IMHO.
