  • 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.

  1. My 2017 display

    I broke my display down into sections since I've never figured out a good place to stand to get a pic of my *entire* front yard without a tree being in my way. The daylight Santa & sleigh I found a couple days before Christmas at an antique store / craft mall type place. I told the hubby that it could be his Christmas present to me! The second one is the area next to the driveway (at Halloween I call it the Mosh Pit since it's where all of my blowmolds live) Every year, it seems like I have one that I call 'A**hole Santa' - never fails that there's one the refuses to stay lit! And the bulb is perfectly fine. The last 2 years it was the little guy in the front (who also didn't like to be vertical) but he passed on the trophy. I also have 3 of the 32-ish inch nutcrackers along the fence. And finally - the front of the house. The "fangs" are simply tomato cages wrapped in lights & sitting in flower pots that my daughter & I put together one night. I think they turned out pretty neat.
  2. My Christmas Lights

    Since everyone was talking about how quiet it has been. I decided to share my displays (minus a few new additions from GFP) and hopefully others will follow.

  5. Requiring Blowmolds

    Greetings Planet Christmas Blow mold family!!!! Question for everyone. How would you handle this situation? There is a family that lives not far from us and they used to set up an impressive display. They are older and she worked at Walmart and was talking to my mom one day and said they still had the items but weren't in the shape to put the display up anymore. She mentioned a yard sale but nothing as of yet. She hasn't been at work in quiet a while either so no contact with her. Would you all if you were me stop and ask about the items or just wait? I don't want to seem pushy or overstep any boundaries. Up for any suggestions. Thanks, Jerry
