  • 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.

  • About my display
    Started decorating the outside of my house in 1982. Last year I had 55k (28k static and 27K computer controlled) lights and had my low power FM Radio Station (107.9). This year I am adding another 32 channels of LOR and will be doubling the number of plywood cutouts.

  2. Could RBG be the answer?

    Greetings all, I have been off the forums for quite a while because of a new job. I am so far behind in the techno lingo, I really don't know how to ask this. I will be doing a speech in December to a group of senior citizens from a church. My topic will be the "Colors of Christmas". I want to be able to light an Aluminum Christmas Tree in White, Gold, Red, Green, and Blue. Can I do this with RBG and what would I need to do this so that I can change the colors as I progress through the speech?
  3. 2015 Mississippi Mini Great Fun

    On Saturday August 8, the Mississippi Mini met in Madison, Mississippi and was a great success. Over 20 in attendance with Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and Tennessee being represented. This photo was made from Hayden Richardson's Drone. Afterwards, it was back inside where there was air-conditioning, fellowship, and a lot of learning.

  5. Projector Needed

    How about posting a brand and model number? Thanks for the help.
  6. Projector Needed

    Does anyone know of a projector that can be turned on by either LOR or X-10? I show video clips during my light show and this year I will not be on location to turn it all on. Any suggestions?
  7. Who Has Started

    I put up my transmitter antenna today and hoisted a 6 foot star forty feet up into a tree...
  8. My Display Got Mauled!

    Karen, you read my mind.
  9. My Display Got Mauled!

    Update: I live in central Mississippi out in the country. In our county, we have leash laws but, I don't think anyone but me follows the law. The person who owns the dog did not apologize or offer to pay for the damage. I got a message a couple of days later that the dog was struck by a car on a state highway. I hate that. A dog is a dog and will do the things that a dog does; especially one less than a year old. It was the owner of the dog that is responsible. Perhaps their loss will teach a lesson that I never could.
  10. Yesterday about 4:00 my display got mauled by a neighbors dog that is allowed to roam free. Lost 2 inflatables. I stopped the dog before it could tear up number 3. I hate that dog.
