  • 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.

  5. Wide Angle 5MM LED Lights

    Hi Group, I'm still crunching through numbers to determine the overall cost of converting my incandescent display over to LED this year. I've found some great deals on LED C7's and Rope Light. However, I'm struggling to find a ecomnical solution for smaller mini lights like the Wide Angle 5MM LED's. The best price I've seen is $10 for a package of 50 count. I need roughly 75-100 boxes of the 50 count and that comes out to a pricey figure. Does anyone know of a vendor that sells these by the spool (100', 250', 500')? Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks! Lightman
  6. Yes, the pictures reflect the new items in the box that I still have. I also have several plastic containers full of used lights. I'm located in Southwest, Kansas. Please let me know if your interested via IM. Thanks!
  7. Recommendations on LED Light Vendor Online

    Great suggestions. Thank You!
  8. I'm in the process of converting my Christmas light display over to LED lights this year. To start that process, I need to downsize all of my incandescent lights I've collected over the years. I have a large quantity of new and used lights up for grabs. Basically a little of everything needed to start/run/maintain a large display. I can ship large quantities of lights via FedEx Ground in larger Home Depot boxes. I'm not going to list a price, just looking for a reasonable offer for parts or all of the new items. Please IM me if interested in any of the items.

  10. Hi Group, I'm looking for recommendations on an online vendor of LED lights. A google search turns up many but looking for one that maybe has some ties to this forum. This year, I'm planning to swap out all of my old incandescent lights for LED. So with that in mind, I'll be buying a lot of LED's. I'm looking for bulk buys like lights on spools versus boxes of lights. I need to redo all my C7 lights which consisted of three separate runs of 100' with three separate colors on each run. Also, I'll be redoing all of my 2' and 4' Christmas tree's. I'd really like to be able to buy spools of smaller LED's (500 to 1000') and cut to my own lights and do my own electrical terminations. Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed! Thanks, Lightman
