Did you know?
  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • 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.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. 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.

---you can either set it to as blank sequence such as full on or sequence the lights to the message as said above.

---you can attach the clip to the end of a song using Audacity or some other audio editor software and it will play after the song end. Both do about the same thing in the end.

OK everyone, I get the message, I'm hooked. Now can someone give me details on how to get them to play between the songs? I have 64 ch.of LOR, outdoor speakers, and transmitter.I just have no clue on how to get them transmitted. Sorry I'm just new to all this and still need lots of help PaulJ

Whether you sequence them or not, just treat them as any other song when you set up your show. For example, in the show editor, you select song 1, voiceover 1, song 2, song 3, voiceover 2, etc.

Ken: Isent you an email. Sorry about them hanging. I checked them from my end and they worked just fine. It may have been I hadn't logged into the site that they play from, I didn't check them until I had logged in. Sorry for the problem. Hopefully the email will help.

I sequence mine! Sometime I just have the lights throbing sometimes full sequence. Sometimes I just have the sequence completly blank while the VO runs.

Slink

I sequence my 'bumpers' as well. They all have music beds so I just sequence as if it were a regular song. The one exception is my "Linus sharing the gospel", where I have the star of our mega tree 'throbbing' as if it were speaking the words, and most other (non-static) lights dimmed or off, except for some that represent the kids choir ooohing to "Hark the Hearald Angels..."

I too received my voiceovers from Kevin yesterday and they are awesome.

Very professional, high quality, and certainly will give your show that professionally produced quality.

His prices are very reasonable for the number of voiceovers he provides and he is fast to get them to you.

Now if I can just get LOR, Zara Radio, the EDM transmitter, and all the lights set up and running I should be golden :eek: !!!

Okay enough for the plug, lets get back to work.
