  • 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.

  1. Household RGB light strip

    Hi, this is Anna from CA. I put a 10-ft tree in the living room. I would like to decorate it by the colorful lights. Any recommendations? I do not want to use the weary, monotonic bulbs. Thanks!! My tree last year
  2. We have tens of thousands of used, non-functional, LED Christmas light strings for sale that can be repaired and reused. Typically, this takes about 5 minutes of your time and a cheap repair tool that can be purchased online. These light strands retail from $15-$25 each. These are available for $1 each strand. CALL SHADRACK PRODUCTIONS FOR MORE INFO AT 423-652-0120. If you prefer certain styles or colors please contact us and we'll try to work something out. Sorting through this pile is not an easy task, as you can imagine by the pictures. Also, if you prefer to buy in large quantities, please contact us and we will attempt to make some kind of deal for you. Most of the repairs will consist of one or more of the LED lights themselves needing to be replaced. Some repairs will be as easy as replacing the fuses in the plug or reconnecting a broken wire. These are light strands that have been used outdoors in our displays and have failed for one reason or another. For the sake of expediency, we simply throw them in a pile and replace them with new strands. Various styles, types and colors. All are 110V and utilize standard north American type plugs. Don't forget to contact us and ask about bulk deals in higher volume! Buy more - Save More! CONTACT US FOR SHIPPING QUOTES TO YOU PRIOR TO BUYING! WE CAN SHIP.
  3. I was looking at the plans for the Winfield Yard Lamp. You cut all the pieces and use pvc pipe for the pole. Just wondering if anyone has done it and if so, could offer any tips. Thanks all!
  4. Home Depot's annual Christmas Light trade in runs from Nov 5 2015 to Nov 15 2015...you can save between $3 to $5 on a new LED set when you trade in your old incandescent set...details below: http://blog.homedepot.com/save-on-led-christmas-lights-when-you-recycle-your-incandescent-lights-2/ I have my eye on a few new LightShow items that I'll purchase with the discount...
  5. I am looking for a recommendation on a brand for nice quality 50' and 100' incandescent mini-light strands. Thanks so much for your time! By quality I mean.. anything and everything you have to share.. from gauge of the cord itself and how nicely it lays flat and straight, to easily replaceable fuses, to dependability and life expectancy, to ease of getting replacement bulbs and doing maintenance on the strands, etc, etc, etc.
  6. Led wire connect to spt?

    An Led element in my light display has unfortunately had a section of wire chewed by a squirrel and needs repair. I have spt1 wire and was wondering if I could connect the led light string (the thin typical Christmas light strand wire) to spt to make a custom length connection? Would there be a problem? Wasn't sure if light strand wire was polarized and if so, how to determine which wire of the light strand has what polarity
