  • 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.

  • About my display
    It's new this year, I recently purchased 3 16 channel controllers. We'll have a modified mega tree and mini trees in the yard. I have 4-30" bells with 1000 lights on each that will be on a wire between 2 trees.
    I have a 10/12 pich on my roof which gives me a good pallet for my new stars I purchased from 3G Lighting Creation.

  2. I Found This At A Christmas Shop While On Vacation.

    I've made these before out of Bass wood. It's lightweight and easy to shape. I made a round template from tooling ply with my router and used a straight cutting bit, with a bearing, to cut the shape. I used 2" thick material and used a 1 1/2" radius cutter to round over the edge. The nice thing about Bass wood is that it's easy to shape with a sander to get that final look.
  3. Yes my controllers are out in the elements.
  4. I think you nailed it [email protected] I just needed someone else to verify it. Thanks
  5. yes. Channel 2 on controller #1 and Channels 1-16 on controller #6.
  6. This also started after we had a little rain this weekend. But why has it taken this long to show up.
  7. I have a spiral tree that stays on between songs. It's very faint but all 16 channels are on. This is the third year with the tree and the first year with this problem. Is this an issue for anybody?
  8. Let It Go Disney Frozen

    I would like to have the audio file of this version. I already have it sequenced to the generic track but would like to cue it up and see if is in sync with my sequence. Email it to me. Thanks [email protected]
  9. Snowing Snowman

    I sold it last week to a person in Florida.
  10. Snowing Snowman

    I was holding this for a guy who wanted it, but haven't heard from him for over a month. Let me know if there is anybody interested. Thanks
  11. Snowing Snowman

    He blows snow from a tube in his hands. It looks like he's blowing a handful of snow. The snow comes in both types, one melts in 7 days and the other melts in 7 minutes. The concentrated snow mixes with distilled water and is poured into the reservoir in the bottom. One bottle lasts about an hour.
  12. Snowing Snowman

    If the shipping is an issue I could absorb the shipping cost if that helps anybody.
  13. Snowing Snowman

    We purchased this snowman this year and it works great but couldn't figure out how to incorporate it in my lightshow. It ran for 15 min if that, i'll let it go for $249.00 + 1/2 shipping and i'll throw in 12 bottles of snow for free.
  14. Since I have a smart guy replying i'll tell you the rest of the story. I built a 10' spiral tree this year and you wouldn't believe how many local people want me to make them one for next year. They don't want to spend the money on a LOR set-up so I figured just put it on a chase loop.
