  • 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. Light Of Christmas

    First video using iMovie. Multiple angles and views. Took a long time to edit the videos. I'm not trained in Mac but my kids are who are too busy... Even in HD, the video seems grainy in spots. Trying to figure that out. Enjoy and share please, thanks! Happy December! Merry Christmas!
  2. So i recently went out and purchased a 48 channel LOR with a mega tree thinking it wouldn't be too hard to figure out but i just unboxed everything and its a bit scary. Any recommendations on where to start? Any sequences someone can share so i can have as an example. Thanks any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. Looking for some ideas or photos based on other peoples "command centers". I personally set up my show laptop and controllers in my garage. Its been.... interesting.... getting everything set up. So this year I have decided to build some dedicated mounting, shelves, outlets, cabinets, etc... so that I can more easily set up the computer part and not have to worry. Anyone else have a similar "command center" type set-up? I would love to see photos or have some people share their set-up lessons learned and what not. My current plan (no particular order): Install old cabinet (sideways), remove door and drill holes on both sides. Laptop in here, run power in one side and cat5 out the other Install outlets- I need more! and I need them in a move convenient place. I currently have 2 controller boxes with plans for a third next year, so I am installing at least 3 new dedicated outlets... LOR box mounting... place them next to the previously mentioned cabinet so I can easily run cat5 Big picture (left to right) Outlet 1 power-> laptop cabinet -> outlet 2 ->box 1 ->outlet 3 ->box 2 ->outlet 4 -> box 3 -> garage cord exit (cat5 is running from cabinet to all boxs) (box outs run out the garage ... obviously)
  4. Dead Channel?

    Hello all! At the end of last year, I noticed that one of my channels (channel 2) would not turn on and is always off. I didn't think much of it (silly me!) and set the controller up in the yard again this year. The channel still doesn't work. I can't get it to turn on. I know people have triac issues, and can't get theirs to turn OFF. I reset the board today, and still no luck. Any ideas? I don't have a large load on it-only 1 strand of C6 LED lights. Thanks!

  13. I have 10 Light-o-Rama units for sale, each 16 channels. I will sell them for $185 each plus shipping. They are all in excellent working condition and all have the latest firmware installed. This is an excellent way to get up and running for your first show ever, or if you've been doing it a while, this is a way to add 160 channels to the show! I live in Southern California, if that helps you estimate shipping but if you let me know where you live, I can calculate shipping for you. Message me through the site or call me at 805-368-0347. Thank you very much.
