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.

Anyone at all interested? I'm surprised. If anyone is interested, please let me know before Friday. If I don't get any orders, I will only be ordering enough for myself. I can order more later, but I would need a definite order before I'll do that.

Jim, I'm placing the order tomorrow and I'll let you know when they arrive. You're more than welcome everyone, thank you for your orders. I will be ordering fifty sockets, so there will be more available for those who need them.

If anyone needs sales references you can ask Carrie, Tom or Jen.

Thank you!

Just want to let everyone know the light sets have arrived. I have attached a picture to better show them. These are available in whatever bracket configuration you need, so if anyone needs a specific mounting configuration, let me know. The sockets have corrosion-proof copper screw shells and accept CFL's. Seasonal industry standard 48" SPT-1 20 AWG cord and YLECL model YL-8K fused plugs, fuse included.

I'm glad I can offer them to everyone. :) Believe me, I understand how things are with the economy. I have been lucky in finding some handyman jobs here and there to survive, but that is it. I will try to always have the light kits available, so if anyone who can't afford these now should be able to in the future, they'll be there.

Thanks you guys and to everyone else who purchased kits, glad to have all happy customers.

Considering all the trouble people have been having with their E26K light sets, I just want to remind everyone that I still have some light sets left. Plates are sold out, but I will get more on request.

If you need them for Christmas, I recommend getting them now. They have been going fast.

Make sure you post when you get more plates. Your plates are a bit thin but they work great and at the price you offer them, again, I'll just order more : ) THANKS for making these available!!

Guys, I am not currently selling these, I apologize.  I hope to offer them again in the future.  For the time being this seller (not me) carries the General Foam light kits.

They are priced extremely high, but if you must have one they are available.
