  • 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.

    Have always had a static display, added music last year, adding synchronized music this year
  1. Our New Song For This Years Display

    No WLND-DAVID your eyes are not deceiving you...We have giraffes pulling the sleigh. There are three of them but the first one fell over d/t a strong wind a few nights ago. We had already stopped running the show and the weather has been too bad for us to get up on the roof and upright the little guy. lol
  2. Our New Song For This Years Display

    That's really cute. I may just have to add it to my display next year. Here's another one you might like. I had a lot of fun sequencing it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGoSlpxK70c&list=UUpd30wpa2jG4b3vwox_ohyQ There's a lot of controversy around "All About That Bass" but I really like the beat and fell in love with one of the parody's. You might like this one too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAmqx13Cbeo&list=UUpd30wpa2jG4b3vwox_ohyQ
  3. Let there be peace in PC.

    I'm sorry that my post disappeared when I tried to edit it (maybe it's because I'n new to the thread) lol, but thank you Tim, although I'm not the one deserves the apology. I believe that most of the members here on PC are good hearted people.
  4. Hi and welcome. I'm new to this forum too. Watch out though. You may get hooked on collecting blow molds if you're not already! lol

  5. I'm really excited about Judy's tour. I'm adding videos to my display for the first time this year and had wondered if I should try to do one for her song. I liked ypur video and it convinced me I should! I'm worried about how I'm going to get it to start when she's ready to sing that song, but hopefully it'll work out. I wanted to add each of the elements that are in her song to my display too, so I'm in the process of doing wood yard art (not really art (just going to paint them white) for the "manger and choir of lovely angels". I don't have any carolers, but I don't have anymore room in the yard either! :)

  6. I got my shipment yesterday and just wanted to let you know it arrived in good condition. Thanks again
