  • 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.

  5. Let there be peace in PC.

    I'm sorry we're veering off course (again...) We're trying to set a world record for the longest thread. Let's keep things light hearted. There are many other forums available at PlanetChristmas for questions, venting and general conversations.
  6. Merry Christmas, Chuck. Thank you for making ours merry, too. i really appreciate all you have done for us and the rest of the Christmas decorators. Darlene Pino

    I'm sorry if anyone missed my earlier post. I'm not sorry for the zero torerance policy used on people breaking any of our three rules at PlanetChristmas, but... I am sorry for letting the negativity and lack of respect for others get out of hand. This is now being addressed.

  12. Hi Chuck. I was updating my LOR signature on my profile and wanted to update my channel count as well as light count. When I edited it, it would only allow me to post one or the other. Error message said I could only post one image. Is this something new or am I not doing something correctly? Please advise. I made a smaller image combining the two, which is fine, just not as nice as the original one with both images. Thanks for any info.

  13. Hey Chuck, First off, Thank-You so much for maintaining this website for us Christmas lovers. It has been a God-Send in keeping me motivated and full of ideas. Second, I have a request to make. in the Forums, there is no section for "Help, I need ideas!" or suggestions and such. For example, I wanted to pose the question of what to add for 2010 and see what ideas trickled in but have nowhere to do so. Any way we can add this? Thanks! Jeff Holmes
