  • 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. Anybody Else Thinking Of Or Ever Taken A Year Off?

    Due to health reasons I had thought about taking last year off and not putting the display out. Some of our friends stepped up and helped us put up the Display though. Seems they wanted it up as much as we did. I am glad we set it up. 1000's of people came by and smiled for a few minutes. It was worth it to us. You have to do what is right for you. Need a break, take it.
  2. I Can't Get Motivated / What Keeps You Going?

    The main thing that keeps us motivated is knowing we are going to get to see 1000's of smiling happy people again this year. That is all it takes to make us push harder to get it done.

  8. How Do I Actually Connect X-10 To Lor On My Desktop?

  9. When I needed to make something into a video off my security system the first thing I did was get the book out that came with it. That told me what I needed to do so that I could have an avi file and put it on YouTube.
  10. Replacement Blower Motor

    Glad you got something. Hopefully the fan will work on your other Inflatable. If it is the right size should not be to hard to change out then you can put it back on the Pumpkin stack for Halloween.
