  • 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.

  1. Some European rarities

    I have 2,4 and 5. They were sold at Rose's Discount Store here in Georgia. They are battery operated LED. I used them in 2015 and 2016. They are pretty cool.
  2. Creepy Halloween '15

    Looks Great! It is awesome that you dedicated the display to Jerry! Justin
  3. Union 2015 Catalog!

    I can't find these in stores anywhere. Wayfair is selling some of them and Christmas Light Creations has few of them in stock, but I thought they would have gotten a little more widespread by now. I found a few on Amazon as well, but the search feature finds them as Union Products and Union United Solutions. I have never heard of the latter. I really had/have high hopes for Cado.... Justin
  4. My 2014 Display...

    Nice Job!
  5. My 2014 Xmas Display

  6. Union Molds Are Back!

    Has anyone heard how Union's sales are doing? I haven't really seen them out in the marketplace. At Home has a few garden items, but that is it. Justin
  7. Aluminum Christmas Tree Question

    I checked the book over the weekend and there was not a mention of product descritption on this type of tree. Sorry. Justin
  8. Aluminum Christmas Tree Question

    Hmm, I have a book on Aluminum Christmas trees at the house. I will look and see if it mentions anything about this type of tree. Also, there is an aluminum Christmas Tree museum in Brevard, NC. They might could help you located pieces since they deal with the materials often. Justin
