  • 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.

Closest I found were these- and they are not as nice.

Mini pathway trees

They are Led "appearing stars" so I assume they blink randomly. He has 5 of them if interested Vette-kid

These look like they would be cool but can't find a source here in the USA

Could do these/or a DYI version to save on costs.

Hmmm, those mini spirals look pretty cool! For the wire frames you could do then up with El wire or led neon.

If I see the guy out I'll have to ask him about them.

What is the height you are looking for with the trees? Neon? LED? Rope light?

Hadn't thought about it that hard, just lined what he had. I'd guess those to be about 12 inches. 12-18 is probably a good target if i were to do something. At this point that's probably a next year project if I'm making something. I just don't have the time for a project in the next month.
