  • 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.

    THIS ADVERT HAS EXPIRED!

    • For Sale
    • Used

    I have a 200 amp box with 16 separate circuit outlets. I used to put a temporary pole up for my display and used this for my main source of power for my display I no longer need it and was hoping someone might be able to use it. I know it is a bit late. I am asking $200.00 for it. I live near Erie Pa Bill

    $200.00

  2. I have 3 sets of arch lights for free I live near Erie pa Bill 814 572 0119
  3. Hey relxerd I'm in Lower Burrell (Braeburn Heights) 75,000 lights where abouts are you I woulld like to check your display out. Bill

  4. Hanging ice lights

    This might sound kinda dumb but I have been using wooden close pins (type with the spring clip) for the past 6 years. The nice part is when you take them down all you have to do is pull one end of the light string and the clothes pins stick to the wire. Thes also work over the edge of a gutter.
  5. Yes that is what I meant, I will start my search thank you
