  • 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. Hey community, This is my first post and we are new to this, so if I'm doing this wrong and/or not in the correct place, please let me know kindly and I will edit as needed. Our company is called Victory Corps. We are over 100 years old and are the leader in manufacturing floral sheeting, fringe, and garland for party, events, and parades. Our floral sheeting can be used as a back drop, table overlay/runner/skirt, or to wrap a column or set on the floor for texture. Our garland and fringe are used for borders, skirting, hanging as streamers, and much more. We are also excited to announce that www.MyDoorDecor.com is restocked with new designs for single car garages, double car garages, split car garages, and single indoor/outdoor front doors. We have partnered with the old owner to increase capacity, service, lead times, and quality. We are sold on Amazon under VICTORY CORPS and www.MyDoorDecor.com. We manufacture everything in the USA (MINNESOTA TO BE EXACT)! www.VictoryCorps.com https://www.facebook.com/pg/victorycorp/photos www.MyDoorDecor.com I look forward to hearing everyone's comments and feedback. Thanks!
  2. I have two 24x30 light up polar bears for sale. For years on Thanksgiving eve my dad and I would put them up every year in our front yard close to the public sidewalk. In our flower planter we would put an inflatable penguin. Each day the bears would get closer and closer. The neighborhood kids loved it cause they knew come Christmas eve, the bears would be in the planter and the penguin would be deflated! It was cute. Now my dad is gone, and this tradition is no longer with his house being sold. So I would now like to send these two on their way to start a new tradition somewhere. I am asking $30.00 each plus actual shipping cost. There is wear on them, but they are in good shape and select light twinkle. Is there anyone out there that would be interested? You can contact me at [email protected] Mike's Creations
  3. Looking to purchase lights directly from manufacture. Also looking to buy outdoor decorations. Thanks nunzio
