  • 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.

  1. Cool White LED 100 Count

    I found some at Lowe's yesterday and bought every one they had. Maybe I started looking too early? But I agree with the poster above that cool white now seems to be fading away. I bought a box of warm white just to see what they looked like. They're definitely different but far from looking anything like incandescent, which I still have quite a few if in my display. You just can't duplicate that glow.
  2. Cool White LED 100 Count

    Thank you. I'll take a look.
  3. Cool White LED 100 Count

    Thanks. I'll take a look.
  4. Cool White LED 100 Count

    WalMart doesn't have them either.
  5. Cool White LED 100 Count

    WalMart doesn't have them either.
  6. Cool White LED 100 Count

    Well that's not what I wanted to hear.
  7. Cool White LED 100 Count

    I'll find one! Perfect. Thanks. Still don't know why all the other stores don't carry them any more.
  8. Cool White LED 100 Count

    Yes, I'm aware of online vendors. Looking for brick and mortar right now. But thank you.
  9. Cool White LED 100 Count

    Thanks, but those are white wire. I should have specified green. And Walmart doesn't have them either. Target has 70 count but they're always overpriced.
  10. Cool White LED 100 Count

    I'm having no luck finding 100 count, LED cool white lights in any store. The most basic LEDs there are. All anyone has is either 200 count or warm white. Home Depot has every other color but cool white in 100 count. Did I miss the memo about warm white pushing out cool white this year? Anyone have any luck finding any?
  11. What to use net lights for

    I use blue nets for a river of lights on the ground. Very easy to set up.
  12. Home Depot LEDs

    My bad. Yes, the stores have 50 and 200 count dome in white and multi. Everything else is the other style. Thanks.
  13. Home Depot LEDs

    I buy all my LEDs from HD. I know, I know... Unsealed lights. Cheap lights. Etc. I've had great luck with them and they last for years. Anyway, they carry Home Accent brand and they suddenly changed the bulb style on their mini lights. Used to be dome, now they're tear drop, resembling incandescent minis. I hate that style. Too bulky and get tangled on everything. I assume the dome style will no longer be carried, but I thought I'd check here. Anyone see the dome style at their HomeDepot?
  14. Mini Tree Wire Frame?

    Yep. Tomato cages are perfect.
  15. Candy Cane Pvc Mounts

    I use 1/2 inch electrical conduit for anything that needs to be supported. Trees, candy canes, etc.. Very easy to cut it to a desired length and very light weight. Someone here suggested it.
