  • 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

Found 3 results

  1. Hi everyone, been a while since I've posted. Rotator cuff surgery went well, physical therapy done and full motion back. Still working on building up the strength. Hired a personal trainer at the gym to help me with this. Oh, well, been a busy few weeks here, this years display will have 2 additional shepherds, 2 more sheep, another bunny, 2 more camels. Also 2 animated nut crackers guarding the singing trees. So now wire frame wise, there will be a total of 22 wire frame units out this year. In addition to 12 green and red wrapped tree trunks also animated, 4 singing coro animated trees, 3 sparkle balls, and all the other glitz. OH almost forgot, 24 cartoon characters on 3 8' sections of white picket fence all hand made. And all this will run off of 2 20 amp circuits, each circuit pulling about 8-10 amps. ALL LED. Love it. So what are you adding this year? Mike's Creations
  2. wireframes for sale

    Wireframes for sale! There is a snowman, Santa, sleds, and several deer available. Christmas is gonna be here before you know it, so might as well get ready now! I have decided to take my display in a different direction this year, which makes my wireframe collection available to you. The snowman is 5' tall, and folds up for easy storage. Santa is 5' tall and really a nice touch. There are 3 sleighs (small, medium, large) that are equally impressive. There are 7 deer in various sizes, some with moving heads others not. The snowman, Santa, and the large sleigh are really rare, and I have never seen them before. They are all used, and some may need to be restrung with new mini-lights. I restrung a few, which was an easy task I did watching a football game on a Sunday. I am looking to sell the entire lot for $200. Drop me PM/email if interested. Pickup only, or I can deliver for $50 if you are in a 50 mile radius from 44133. IMG_2742.MOV
  3. Leds For Exploding Star

    Oh great ones! I have a four layer exploding star and I want to use pixels on it. This star will top my 16 smart strip flat tree. Anyone done this type of wire frame with pixels before? The largest star is 58" across. I could do LED rope or EL wire but I really want to do pixels (dumb). Thanks!
