  • 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.

  1. New computerised show

    I hand deliver a Christmas card with a box of candy to all of my neighbors around me every year and make sure that I talk with them throughout the year. I've never had a problem.
  2. I have made them in the past to be used on flagpoles. Send me a email and I'll send you some pictures.
  3. I would like to thank all of you making this year an outstanding one for building frames. As you all know I had to stop taking orders in February for this year. I now have about 25 frames on a waiting list for next year. I can make about 120 frames a year and if I get several large orders like I did this year it could be less as it takes a lot of time to build them. I have tried to keep everyone that ordered up to date on where I at in building the frames.I have 2 guys that have helped with the cleanup of the frames this year and they have been great. Thanks Rob & Tom for you help. I have been building frames 5 to 6 days a week in order to get as many frames made as possible. Some of you have had to wait 6 to 7 months for your frames and no one has complained. I’m very humbled that so many of you trust me to build your frames.I’ve even gotten comments like this; “Thank you for what you do” and “Doug, you do great work and are well worth waiting for”. Orders that are placed on the waiting list will require a down payment of half of the order and can be canceled and refunded prior to me starting the build. I will send you an email when I'm going to start building your order about a week before I start.Again, thank you all for a great year. Hope I will have time to get my own display ready for this year.
  4. Due to the amount of current frames to be made that were ordered by Feb. of 2017, I had to stop taking orders for this year. All orders placed now will be for 2018 or whenever I can get them made Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think this would happen.
