  • 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.

  4. Light O Rama box Daisy Chain Issue

    Cat cords are fine. Units work wonderful individually. its boxes 3 and 4 that do not properly operate.
  5. Okay, I am dead in the water. I can individually set up each box with Unit ID's. So when it comes time for all 5 boxes individually they set up perfectly and run the test properly. So when it comes to running full show. The first two boxes work but the communication between box 2 & 3 there is a constant blink on the Unit 3. Remember, when I set up Unit and hook it to hardware utility for individual box. However, the original issue started on box 2 which i switced that box with box 5. After this switch it started working. I have a feeling it has something to do with new 2016 model Light o Rama boxes What I have done: Reset JP3, Updated Firmware on GP3-MP3 director, powered off unit. Mind that UNIT 1: 2014 Model Unit 2 & 5 : 2015 Models Unit 3 & 4: 2016 Models I need help

  7. HLE Pre order sale 2016

    I have bought roughly 20000 thousand lights from this vendor. In the 3 years of purchasing I have maybe had 5 to 7 strands fail. Their warranty is the best and prices also. Can't say nothing but good about Holiday Lights Express
  8. Saying Howdy!

  11. Still Love Airblowns

    They have a 77 dollar Siberian Husky at Walmart. I just can't wrap my head around spending that kind of loot. Its 9 foot tall. I believe If I get it it would hurt the space I have in the yard. I am having to wood cutouts made of my dogs to install in the show.
