  • 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.

About my display

  1. Hi guys. I’m planning on changing my usual static display into a music synchronised controller based light display ready for Christmas 2018. I’m a complete rookie on this subject and wondered if anyone had some pointers on where to start. Obviously we use a different voltage over here 240v so I don’t know how much kit in the US will work over here. Any feedback would be great. Thanks and Merry Christmas:-)

  3. I got the light show part of my display up and running last night. Simple 16 channel LOR setup for a few sections on the house. I wasn't going to synchronize it to music and just run animation on it. Well I've since changed my mind and need suggestions for an FM transmitter. Looking for one around $100 at most but maybe more if it is a lot better. It would be placed in the garage and the street is only about 50- 75 ft away, 100 if i put it at the back of the garage. I'm a newbie to FM transmitters so any help is appreciated!
  4. Hi Everybody, I just want to make sure all the new folks here know how grateful I am that you guys continue to use "The House on Christmas Street" in your displays! And I'm always happy to send a free mp3 to anyone who wants it...just write to me on my website, which is just my name. I have a few other songs that you might want to consider using in your displays as well! https://soundcloud.com/judy-pancoast/mrs-santa-claus-1 https://soundcloud.com/judy-pancoast/03-the-little-christmas-village https://soundcloud.com/judy-pancoast/blessed-be-god https://soundcloud.com/judy-pancoast/where-is-santa-claus I'm happy to send free mp3s to any decorator who wants to use any of them. Thank you thank you thank you! Oh wait...I've got one that's good for Halloween displays as well! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXOgyjhVj5k Have a wonderful day! xo Judy Pancoast
  5. Help! Gemmy mp3 to mono

    I have a Gemmy light show controller box and I want to have my own music but I'm having troubled converting my mp3 to mono with using audacity. I open audacity and import my mp3 file and then click stereo to mono and I listen to it afterwards and it sounds like bunch of bass and can't really hear the words being sung. Please could someone help me out and point me in the right direction.
