  • 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.

    well I don't have one at the moment but hope to remedy that soon!!!

    I do custom sequencing using LOR software and have been doing this now for 3 yrs going on my fourth year!
  1. Next person who contacts me regarding sequencing and locks in will get a large discount (30% or more). Who wants it?
  2. I am offering sequencing for the 2016 season and am taking a few new sequencing customers for the year. Visit http://www.syncrolights.com for information, and I am going to be offering those who contact me and lock in services for the year a 15% discount on all sequences. I might even go a bit more, but I am only offering this to the first 4 people who contact me. Email me at [email protected] or you can message me here, or find me on FB! Let me know and Happy Sequencing Everyone!
  3. Christmas T-Shirt

    Thought I'd put this out there for everyone! Key that I see is have to have 100 ordered for the order to go in. I am getting one I know that, maybe even 2! http://teespring.com/playwithlights
  4. If they want to go, they need to decide and really soon. If they want to just come for the trip, then there will be plenty of shopping and things they can do while you are off at The Academy. I will be there myself as will be my girlfriend. It'll be fun!
  5. I have 3 slots that opened up for sequencing for the 2014 year. I am offering them as first come, first serve. There will be discounts given on the sequencing, so don't hesitate to contact me today. Contact me on here or [email protected]
  6. Timing marks are important. For most, they are the critical thing that allows us to do the song. For some, it's not easy getting the timing marks for the beat, voices, various instruments, etc. I am willing to help with this. I can do the timing marks for nearly any song and can go into detail on what you need. Message me or go to http://www.lightenupexperience.com/8.html or email me: [email protected]
