  • 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. Blue 5mm LED Lights

    THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    • For Sale
    • New

    Several years ago I purchased these from Holiday Lighting so they are excellent quality. I never got to that project and my days of large displays is coming to an end so need to sell these. When I received them I unwound them and cut off the tags so they would be ready to go, just never got there. They are new and have never been used. Full Wave 5mm Blue LED Christmas Light Strings- 70ct These 5MM Conical LED Christmas lights have 70 premium grade LEDs per set, 4” bulb spacing with a 6” lead and tail wire, equaling a total length of 24 feet. Regular Male/Female Plugs attached, and low energy use (4.8 watts per set), allows for easy installation (can connect up to 45 sets end-to-end) and connection to a standard 120v Outlet. The Weather-proof 1-piece construction of these LED Christmas lights make them great for both indoor and outdoor use, and because they are full-wave rectified, you will get brighter truer colors with no flicker. Fully Dimmable, and compatible with popular light animation programs like LightORama and Animated Lighting I have 24 sets of them and they are currently being sold for $12-$17 depending on how many you buy. I will sell them individually for $8 a set plus shipping or sell all of them for $160 plus shipping. If interested shoot me an email [email protected]

    $8.00

    I have about 40 sets of red led mini lights, 60 count. 25 sets are still in the box and 15 sets aren't. Easier to ship without the boxes so you decide. I believe these sets come from Walmart as I purchased them on here some years ago and never got them worked into my show. Asking $3.50 a set plus shipping. Let me know how many you want and can get you an estimate on the shipping cost. [email protected]

    $3.50

    One thing you very seldom see is icicle lights in solid green. I have 8 sets of green Icicle lights for sale. They are in incandescent mini lights. Each set contains 100 lights, total length is 10 feet and lighted length is 9.5 feets. The strings appear to be longer then most sets with some over 2 feet long. I am asking $6.00 a set plus shipping. All 8 sets will fit into a flat rate medium box and I think that is about $13.60 flat rate to anywhere. If you are interested you need to email me [email protected]

    $6.00

  4. Anyone From Michigan Around?

    Guess you would know where to find me then. Actually I still have them and some other things if you are interested. Going to take me a while to get them all together and spring would be a better time to pick them up but if you are still interested let me know, [email protected]
  5. To CCR tree or not to CCR tree?

    I think what you were asking is should you invest in a CCR tree for your show. I added one to mine 3 years ago and it really took my show to a new level. It is something that gets people really talking about your show and will really increase your traffic if you have some great sequences. To program them takes a lot more effort and is what really makes them. Programming is my handicap so I purchased most of mine because I wanted to have some that were really nice and I am not so vain that I feel the need to think I did them all myself. I have a nice parking lot that people can pull in and watch the show and close to Christmas I hand on average 30 - 50 cars in my lot most of the evening. If you get them make a little more of an investment and be sure to get the Grinch sequence as it seems to be the hit of the show.
  6. Anyone From Michigan Around?

    This area seems kind of dead. Was wondering if anyone in Michigan was wanting any used lights. I have lots to get rid of, most in great shape yet. Have lots of odds and ends to give up to. If anyone is interested send me an email [email protected]
  7. Jeanerette, La. Planning On 2014 Display To Go Sync!

    You purchase the WOW Christmas package and you are really wasting a lot of money. If your not handy enough to build some of things that they are going to sell then I have to wonder if you have the talents to even carry it off. And your going to find the stuff they are selling is not really that plug and play where it will require so little work for you. If you build your own props this summer they are going to be just as plug and play as what you going to get from them. Of course if money is no object then go ahead but after you fork over that amount to them be ready to fork over more then that to complete your display.
  8. Rgb Dumb Pixels

    Thanks for helping. I take it the ones from Ray are water proof? Also I see a lot of then are either DC 5v or 12v. What is the difference or your choice? I have had people you if contacted ray directly you could save a little on shipping or will he combine shipping charges? thanks
  9. Rgb Dumb Pixels

    OK I am trying to figure out this RGB thing. I have a lot of stick trees that I would like to convert over to the dumb RGB nodes next year. I have been trying to do a lot of reading on them but every time I do my head spins trying to figure out exactly what I need and where to get it from. Since I had 600 mini lights of each color on the tree I would like to try 600 nodes on one tree first and see how it looked. Could someone please tell me exactly what I need to purchase to put 600 nodes on that tree and where is the best place to buy the stuff as far as price and reliability. I live in snow and cold so that would have to be a consideration. I also want to be able to tie it in and program it with LOR. I hope someone that has been working with them can easly tell me what I need. thanks Duane
  10. Yes I am from Muskegon and have already started getting set up.

  11. Someone else from West Michigan? Can it be? I grew up in Grand Haven and live outside of Grand Rapids. I was hoping to find others in this area to share tips, tricks, ideas and experiences with.

  12. Dennis I usuall figure about $1 a box but what ever you need just let me know. Duane

  13. I take it you are from this area?
