  • 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.

    when a specific mold is no longer produced, no you can't get parts for it. Lets say they got rid of the Mr/Mrs C duo, you can't order those glasses (even though they use the same one for the larger Mrs C but this is hypothetical). Even if they have the molds stashed away, that mold is not in production so therefore its components aren't either... makes since. Most parts are molded in colored plastic so thats where the real trouble is, if they have no use for blue plastic they wont use it... and won't 'warm' up the machines for one order. that snowman of yours was discontinued in I think 2006/7... right before Menard's started carrying the selection If they discontinued him later I bet they would have carried him. Painting it blue will work, see now reason why it wont.

    This might open a can of worms, and it may seem a bit too redundant but me being such a nice guy (contrary to misguided belief) I decided to post pricing on the parts you CAN ORDER from GF. I had great luck with ordering so I decided to post the prices as reference. Before I continue I can not stress the rule "it's all on who you talk to" today I got a sales rep that was one nut shy of a fruit cake (not to go into detail but WHOLE molds where offered to me). Anyway... I called the showroom line, it was automated (press 1 for this, press 2 for that...) but eventually I got to the replacement part line (which was offered in the menu upon calling). The parts I got can be used for any mold, not just GF. Most of the molds they carry are old Empire so theres a good chance spare parts are interchangeable . Now the prices WILL vary.... they have for me. Choir heads: ~$8 Carrot Noses: $1 Buttons (halloween bear, snowmen): $0.50/each Angel Wings: $2/each Runners: $4-8 (I ordered two, one set of two was $4, the other was $8? Shepherd's crosier/staff: $1 Snowman Pipe: $1/each This is what I ordered, so the prices are correct. Over the past couple weeks I ordered 2 choir heads, 2 angel wings, 2 pipes, 4 buttons, 2 sets of runners, 3 carrot noses, one shepherds staff and a partridge in a pear tree! Im sure these are parts as well.... Victorian Caroler coat buttons, (SB) realistic deer antlers, Mrs C's glasses, animal noses (bears, if they are not molded in), maybe the 'doll eyes' in Mrs. C, and reindeer stands (maybe, I couldn't order reigns)... these items I have no use for and no need to order, but I'm sure some of these can be ordered as well. So the bottom line is you CAN eventually order, I have ordered give or take 15 items and half of them won't go on GF molds... So, good luck. Hope this helps.
