  • 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.

Fire Flicker LEDs

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried one of the Flickering Flame LEDs?  Saw them and wished they made them in a C7 Candelabra base.  Would love to replace those little flicker bulbs that hardly work outside when it is cold.  I saw a video of one of them this am and when you turned it upside down, it adjusted so the flame went the correct way.

I still get confused with all the light sizes out there.   E-26, E-27, Mini, C-9, Candelabra, Intermediate, C-6, M-5, Mogul  etc, ect, etc.

 Not sure if this is the right one or not, but it is available in a few different sizes:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/6-5W-E27-E14-B22-LED-Flicker-Flame-Fire-Effect-Light-Bulb-Warm-White-Decor-Lamp/142578326015?hash=item21325499ff:m:m3hZ92VtQz5HXFDPI-JffLw

Try an e-Bay search for LED Fire Bulb -  I see that prices vary widely from vendor to vendor.

I did just this in my blow mold candles. I tried a couple different ones!

Expensive but these were the right fit and look really good plus the flame effect is perfect look for outdoor fire. Time will tell if they hold up. Been out there for a few weeks so far, no issues.

I tried the ones above/or similar off ebay for cheaper but had to remove the plastic cover to make them fit, but didn't like exposed wires like that.

 

 

 

I also bought these - still waiting for shipment LOL from ebay 3 modes and cheaper
