  • 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.

  15. Help!! Im feeling Grinched

    You know that I am feeling liek that this year. I have to put up with the people that help me complain and complain that I am crazy that this is to much work, I don't want to do it anymore. I agree with what everyone says that memories are the thing that can never be taken away. I even had a family that came by during Halloween and asked me if I was going to do the display again. Yes, I said and I get super excited that I can make a family happy in Christmas time. We can all agree that its back breaking work and it grueling, and their are things that we can never get done for the next year, but for me its the happiness I bring to others. hopefully Ill be able to get my static display up this weekend, and take my mute pill so I don't have to hear the complaining form the people that help me. Let s see how this turns out. I think about my display all year long and I dread the fact that when I start it I have to here all the complaining while they do it. Let hope that I don't have to extra spike my nog to get through this.
