  • 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.

  2. Hello to all members of this great forum and this great Christmas Lights portal Sorry, this text was created with an online translator, because unfortunately I do not speak American or English. My name is Thomas and I would like to call attention to the German-language Christmas house Portal Weihnachts-Lichter.de . The portal has been online since 2009 and this year saw its biggest change since it had to rest for two years due to family events. On Weihnachts-Lichter.de, the owners of the Christmas houses are presented by me, with additional picture galleries and if possible also video galleries. Use the following urls to get to the overviews of the picture and video galleries of the corresponding Christmas houses: Picture galleries Christmas houses Video galleries Christmas houses You have to click on the corresponding links to get to the galleries. Who would like to have a look! At the top of the website, there is a Google Translator button, so that the pages can also be translated into your languages. I would be happy, if you like it and wish you all a wonderful holiday season. Warm greetings from Germany
