  • 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. Everything I've found on the forum is fairly old so hopefully this will bring some new life to this topic. I have the HolidayCoro singing light bulbs and snowman, looking for someone that has a nice visualizer prop file that will help me sequence these characters in the LOR Sequence Editor. I am more than willing to pay for a good prop file that includes all 8 channels for the snowman and another prop file with all 8 channels for the singing light bulbs. The prop file should be a complete image of each character with the proper channels assigned and lights drawn as in the HolidayCoro instructions. Even something that is close that I can modify will be good at this point. Thanks in advance for any help
  2. I'm going to add one channel for shooting star icicle lights on my house as part of my 2017 show. Does anyone know how to build an LOR visualizer prop where the lights of the icicles drop or fall? I tried simply drawing vertical strings and duplicating them over and over (like 80 times) but they are only on or off. I want them to show in the Visualizer just like the will on my house, dripping downward. Any suggestions?
  3. I need your suggestions. I'm want to have a life-size (because, you know...he's real) Santa, seated on a bench. He would be outside and would be used by visitors to sit next to and have their pictures taken. I don't think parents would think to put their kids on him but you never know. He would sit in my backyard during the evening and I'd pull him off just before Virtual Santa would come on. In 2014, I walked out on to my porch dressed as Santa after Virtual Santa would end as if he was leaving my house. The crowd went nuts when I did this last year. Once the crowd had gotten their photos, I would go car to car making sure everyone got a chance to see Santa. I thought that this year that I would wave to the visitors and invite them to follow me into the backyard. I would then sit on the bench for photos. My back can't handle standing for more than a few minutes at a time and I thought that it would make for a better picture to be seated next to Santa with his arm around you. I'm looking for inexpensive suggestions to build a Santa stand-in for me to be available for pictures during the evening when I'm not there as Santa, Thanks! Chuck aka WhitePlainsNY
