  • 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.

  1. Gemmy Santa Help.

    If possible I'm going to replace the capacitors and diodes on the board and see if that will make mine dance again.
  2. Cado/Union Blowmolds at Menards!

  3. Cado/Union Blowmolds at Menards!

    Yesterday I went to my local Menards to see what sort of blow mold selection they had this year. As I assumed, not many GFP ones because of them going out of business, but to my surprise, the had a Cado/Union Santa, Snowman, Mrs. Claus, and Noel Candle! I'm going to try to get the Santa and the snowman this year at least. Are they at any one else's local Menards? I do feel sad GFP is closing next year, But i'm glad they'll have Cado ones. what do you think about Cado/Union?
