  • 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.

  1. Home Depot Christmas 2014

    The Santa is a favorite too... And the Polar Bear cookie jar scene would go good with the Penguin cafe...

  3. Looking For Life Size Mary And Joseph

    Yes it was made by Gemmy back in 2010 I believe... I haven't found a life size set available anywhere besides ebay every now and then.... http://worthpoint.com/worthopedia/8-ft-realistic-life-sized-nativity-gemmy-airblown As for the smaller set that JDarling mentioned....that also was made by Gemmy and sold at Lowes for Christmas 2011 and 2012 season. A much smaller version of the original set.
  4. Looking For Life Size Mary And Joseph

    These are not inflatables. They are made of PVC pipes. Gemmy sold the set at Lowes a few years back. Regret not getting one, hoping to find one online to add to this years nativity area.
  5. When Are After Christmas Sales

    Picked up 125 boxes of minis from Walmart today and a few boxes of the Gemmy icicle lights....Stopped by Lowes they had a bunch of green incans out at half price...Picked up an airblown at Home Depot also... Does anyone know when Lowes and Walmart usually go 75% off...
