  • 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.

Anyone know this blow mold?

Recommended Posts

I just came across this Santa blow mold which I've never seen before.  Does it look familiar to anyone?  I sent off a message to the seller asking if there is any info on it.

Pretty sure it's TPI. Pre-1988 TPI didn't date their molds or add a manufacturer, they just printed the made in Canada. There were other Canadian companies like alderbrook Industires and IPL but IPL left their molds blank and Alderbrook Had Empire Stamps.  That basically leaves TPI as the most likely manufacturer. The artwork looks very similar to TPI molds from that era.

Donna, that is the 20" TPI #4935 "Christmas Wreath" and it is shown in their 1994-1996 catalogs.
