  • 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.

    I was born in Western, PA and moved to Gergia in 1999. I am married to a wonderful woman named Jenny and we have three kids, Joe, Abbie, and Mary Beth.
    I got into decorating as a child thanks to my grandmother and mother. We always had lights, nothing over the top though. I always wanted a great display and now my house is the one everybody comes to see and I love it.

  • About my display
    In 08 our plan is around 70,000 lights and so far 112 channels of LOR. We have 2 mega trees, 32 mini trees, LEDs, mini lights, you name it. We also have the peanuts gang and a singing Elton John and a nativity that has been in my family for 30 years. I hope to add more as the year goes on.

  4. Iso help with music box for lights

    Hmm that's going to take some thought. It sounds like you are very limited to be honest. With LEDs you shouldn't overload the box. My guts is its rated for 10-15 amps. Can you add to it? I know Donne of those boxes you can buy satellite boxes for them. If not I would plug in 6 strings of lights and play with it. Pick up on how it flashes the lights then make you plan from there. Sorry I couldn't be more help but I'm use to controllers and total control of the lights. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

  8. Securing molds in a better way

    I use fiberglass pole 1/2 from tractor supply for my soldiers. I just stake therm behind each one and use thin line tired around the soldier and the pole. They also have sand in them as well. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

  10. LEDs stringers

    So you are thinking of going 2 colors so you can toggle from one to the other? I think either will be fine. I use mini lights but it's personal preference I would think. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
