  • 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.

  3. Pink Gingerbread Tree

    Thanks Mel, I dont why that one is pink and I dont think that one is paint fade. Maybe someone repainted it, does anyone have any other pics of a pink one?
  4. Pink Gingerbread Tree

    That sure looks pink but nothing like the tree in the first post. I thought I seen some gingerbread items were remade a couple years ago maybe the pink was made then.
  5. Blow-Molded.com

    Is there still any need of pictures? I could send some if anyone was still adding to the site.
  6. Blowmolds

    Where did you see that sleigh sell for 600 bucks? I have seen them go for around 200 to 250 thats about tops.
  7. Pink Gingerbread Tree

    Some colors fade a lot more than others, or maybe my eyes are going bad.
  8. Poloron Mechanical Santa

    Yes it is.One santa I redid and I was going to redo the other one but I think Im going to leave that one alone.
  9. Pink Gingerbread Tree

    I think I might have some that color, I will have to look. I never paid any attention to it because I just figured the sun did it.
  10. Poloron Mechanical Santa

    This is what the santa looks like, there is one on ebay but they are pricey. Not the best pic but only one I have on my phone.
  11. Pink Gingerbread Tree

    I just thought it was a from sun fade.
  12. Halloween

    Nice setup, you have some very good pieces there. I would be a little nervous about even putting them out.
  13. Seen these today

    The local Menards must have just got this in, still no santa.
  14. Wooden ornement cut outs

    Those look nice, good job.
  15. Some new additions

    I have one more complete deer but the antlers are broke, I need to fix it and I have another deer but for some reason no head. I will add some pics of the sleigh later on.
