  • 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.

It's been more than 24 years that I started doing my Christmas Display and been a childhood dream of mine to do this. I know that somehow when they see and experience it, brings a lot of joy and happiness to their christmas and a lasting imprint to their hearts.

I thank the Lord for the hands and sight that guide me to create something out of lights and so that I can continue this ministry of mine thru the coming years. Every year this is my devotion to Santo Niño, that I promise to complete by 12 midnight of December 24th. This year due to the weather (rain, wind and frigid temperature) , completed the display by December 31st.

Again Maraming, maraming salamat po (Thank You). Clem P. Viñas

To Mom(Mommie Ruth) & Dad (Daddy Ponching), my Lola Esyang, Lola Mamang , Tito Cleming, Tito Jr, I dedicate this to you all, that somehow you could see it looking down thru the heavens "Merry Christmas"
