  • 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. Have you seen these before?

    27 1/2 Ok, it's Christmas eve, I ask my wife if she'd like to go look for a couple of chairs to add to the dining room set. We visit a local antique shop and what to my wondering eye should appear? These two cement candlesticks. Roughly 27 1/2 inches without the bulbs. Recently re-wired with new cords and sockets. There's a metal pipe up the center to run the wire. We found them to be unique and a once in a lifetime find.

  3. A find I wasn't expecting.

    I went to the local consignment shop just to see what was there. Most of the booths were the usual with some small indoor Christmas items. turned the corner and what to my wondering eyes did appear, these two Empire red candles with the pointsetta design. The price was in my budget so I brought them home. They have 1969 molded into them near the logo, not sure if its the year or part number.
  4. Anyone selling these?

    Hey all...newbie here. Came across this site when looking for these specific blowmolds. They are Noel candles made by Empire. I think they are from around the 60s. They have gold at the bottom and a yellow and orange flame. Two would be ideal but even one would make me happy. Thanks for looking and let me know. I am in Indiana by Chicago.
  5. Who Manufactured These Candles...

    Does anyone know who manufactured these candles...
  6. Pvc Candles

    I decided to make a set of PVC candles based on something that was posted with an instructional video. The video shows the candles being made with PVC and using GreatStuff foam to imitate the dripping wax. I tried that and it did not work well for me. I tried one other spray foam product and it looked nice but was not durable. So I decided to try using hot glue to see if the would work. The hot glue is very durable and it will maintain its shape once it dries. Also, it looks like wax! It was very easy to create the dripping of wax effect I wanted and it has the durability I need to hold,up to all the storage, setting up and taking down. I did not want these to be easily damaged by a mere bump. They turned out very durable and look pretty good. I decided to make these in white for my sister-in-law. I used furniture grade PVC since I wanted them to look nice without the painting! I also found color PVC in 1-1/4 that comes in red, blue, green and yellow. I plan on making a set for myself with red PVC.
