  • 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.

    Hello, I have a very beautiful and very unique "Santa with Children" (near life-size) fiberglass decoration. I purchased it two years ago with the intent of adding this to my outdoor display. I never did because I thought it was just too beautiful to place outside. It measures 45" x 30" x 30" . Too large to ship. Pick up in Allentown, Pa area. I would meet you within 30 miles of the Allentown area. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have! Merry Christmas

  3. Hello, I have quite a few older wire frame decorations that are just getting too expensive to run with the older incandescent bulbs. I would like to convert them over to LED (C7) bulbs and would to know who has the Best Prices? Because I would need approximately 500 bulbs, this would have be done incrementally over a few year period. Thank you for your response and Good Luck with your display in 2016!
  4. Displays to see while in CA?

    Hi, I am flying out to San Fran on Saturday, staying for a few days then driving down the coast to LA. I was wondering if you could recommend any good static and animated Christmas displays to see while I am in the Bay area, driving down the coast, and in the LA area? You could message me the addresses if you don't wish to post here. Thanks for all of your help and Merry Christmas! John
