  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • 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.
  • 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.

what program do you guys use to edit the song you are sequencing? (ie shorten or take parts out) can it be done right from S3? also I know you need to adjust the gain of all the songs to keep everything one sound level. any suggestions?

I use Audacity, it's free and runs on several operating system and has a ton of features.  You can also get several additional plug-in's to increase its functionality.  It has multi-track capability which makes it easy to split channels, remove parts and drag them to line up the timing perfectly.

I actually use SoundForge, which may be overkill for something that simple. As for the S3, I have "MP3 Cutter and Ringtone Maker" which on my S4.  I am pretty sure it works just fine on an S3.

should I put my music through MP3 Gain before sequencing or it doesn't matter? it's not going to change anything except the volume level. also had a similar question. in the show editor can I set a startup sequence for when it begins and random song selection after that? I would also like some type of voiceover to randomly play between 2 songs. I wasn't sure if they have like Santa or something or my kids saying merry Christmas. should I just create a sequence with all my lights on and the audio is the voice over and have it randomly in the song selection? thanks guys.

You can run mp3 gain anytime. It can run in batch mode so you can do your entire audio file. As for random I remember some discussion on how that would work but don't remember outcome. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk 4
