  • 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.

    almost 60 blowmolds not to many lights and 3 inflatables
  1. Motorized Flying Santa

    I think the ghost is a great idea, but it doesn't weigh much. Also after looking into garage door motors, they work a heavy load, but for short times. So maybe if you're only flying short distances it will work. I plan on doing more research, I'll post here if I figure anything else out
  2. Important: Industry Information On Painting Hdpe

    Hmmm, very interesting, I painted a few last year and the paint certainly scraps off a lot easier. I wonder if this would help
  3. Sweet Score!

    YAY Clete making his presence known again. I've got the hanging SANTA that was 49.95 back in the day. I love him. I think next year he's going on a motor and moving around the yard
  4. Anybody Using Dumb Rgb Nodes To Illuminate Blowmolds ?

    Ahhh my brain hurts with possibilities :-)
  5. CT Mini

    Bringing up a blast from years past. But I'm heck bent on seeing this happens. My wife just leased a 1200 square foot place on the Boston post road in Orange, ct. If there's enough or any interest we should totally hash out details of a good weekend date some locals can get together and shoot the ship.:-) Any takers?
  6. Robbed Last Night!

    oh no, thats terrifying... last night after my show had ended i was heading to bed and noticed a car sitting in front of the display. it was around a half hour after the show ended.. so it was fishy... then i noticed the tell-tale sign of HOOLIGANS.. it seems like they were having trouble keeping a cigarette lit. i hope you nab those guys, i have a security camera system, bought it last year, but they aren't HD, so i doubt i would be able to make out a plate, but it gives me peace of mind knowing those glaring red lights are always pointing toward my donation boxes and display. good luck i hope you nab them.
  7. It's Been A Great Week For Finds!

    awesome.. those are so great. they look similar build to my santa, but with a lot more character
  8. Past 2500 Cars Tonight..

    Second that. Sounds like a fun stat to have
  9. Display In News Paper Blow Molds

    Excellent, solid display of some really neat blowmolds. I love the two snowmen under the sign
  10. Great Christmas Light Fight

    So sad that it didn't sound like they changed the format. Last year they were very stringent with the rules. Also they were very tight on help. Paperwork and checks. So sad.
  11. Great Christmas Light Fight

    i didn't get to see it yet, but it sounds like they didn't work out the kinks as we were hoping they would... you would think an even playing field would be first and foremost... either way. i have to figure out how to watch it
  12. Great Christmas Light Fight

    sure was a great experience. i just hope they changed the format, last years episodes were a hodgepodge of different types of displays. i through together a long email to the producers how to fix it for this year. hopefully it didn't fall on deaf ears... i just really wanted that sweet trophy
  13. Great Christmas Light Fight

    yeah, we were episode two. it was an amazing experience.. we lost
  14. Great Christmas Light Fight

    Just found the DVD copy of our episode last year. Need to re watch it and feel the burn all over again
  15. Don Featherstone Raccoon

    How many boxes of unopened molds do you have :-) I'm glad he's not ultra rare, otherwise I would have either returned him to her, or sent him to you
