  • 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.

Squirrel ate tha end off a string!

Recommended Posts

A squirrel ate the plug end off one of my LED nets, chewed them flush with the plastic plug. Now I can’t tell which wire goes where, it’s a 3 wire system. Any thoughts on how to repair these?

That is why you can't cut that warning label off the strands...the squirrels can't tell that those strands contain lead and will kill them!  :lol:  I really don't see what squirrels see that is so appealing to eat, but I have had them chew through my RGBs (Red, blue, green wires) once as well.

Do you have another set to compare?  Then you can trace the wires back and make them match.

Thats why I always keep spares. Unless its a controller I just replace the lights to keep my sanity. Or fix it after the season. Merry Christmas!

All fixed, traced out the ground, capped it off then took the 2 hot leads and wire nutted then together. I will put a new female plug on after the season. Thanks everyone
