  • 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. Shooting Star Ver2.0.mp4

    From the album Aabeck's album

    Update of the shooting star in my LR window for Christmas. I added a few more modes. This is run on an Allen Bradley SLC5/05 and controlled by 2 PC's and a Windows10 tablet running AdvancedHMI. Sorry about the focus, but the camera couldn't keep it's focus range on the flashing lights.

  2. Halloween_LR_Lights.mp4

    From the album Aabeck's album

    Display of my LR window for Halloween. Runs on the same Allen Bradley SLC5/05 as my LR Christmas lights. The run from October 15th until the 31st. The upper strings that change color can have the timer changed by 2 PC's and a Windows 10 tablet running AdvancedHMI. The spider web has 2 spiders that don't show too well unless you get really close. I have a few timers sequenced to make the web flicker to look like what I think the bad electrical service in a haunted castle would do.

  3. From the album Aabeck's album

    This is a set of 6 circuit multi-function chase lights I have across the bottom of my Christmas LR window. It is run on an Allen Bradley SLC5/05 with 2 PC's and a Windows 10 tablet running AdvancedHMI. There are 5 modes the display goes through, with a light test mode that can be toggled on by any of the HMI's for testing the lights, especially to make sure they're in the correct order. This is made up of 6) 100 light strings running on 120 volt outputs.

  4. ShootingStar.mp4

    From the album Aabeck's album

    Shooting star I have in my LR window. It's run by a Allen Bradley SLC5/05 controlled by 2 PC's and a Windows 10 tablet all running AdvancedHMI. The entire display is made of strings of lights cut into 24 volt sections (the shaft sections have a couple extra bulbs each for geometric reasons and to have the bulbs not full brightness.) The green LED's were added because I had 2 unused PLC outputs on the output card controlling this.

  5. Christmas_LR_Window.mp4

    3 sets I have in my Living Room window for Christmas. Running on an A-B SLC5/05 with 2 racks, and controlled by 2 separate PC's and a Windows 10 tablet all running AdvancedHMI. The 7 element set across the top of the window is also activated for Halloween (with 7 cat lanterns) and Easter (7 Easter eggs). The display is programmed with separate start & stop times for November/January and for December. They are programmed to be on from November 22nd through January 3rd.
