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.

I think shipping would kill the deal for me.

I'll let everyone else jump on this one because another deal is coming down the pike.

hey there guys and gals that have PM'd me I will get to your PM's this evening after work.. I have a huge full day of conference calls, meetings, and have some PHP code to write and demo.... so dont worry if I havent responded right away to you....

-Christopher

P.S. to some that have concern of me leaving the hobby.. please understand im Not leaving the Hobby.. my home will still be very decorated for Christmas time inside and out...

I am simply putting the 'Christmas' back into my Christmas Display.. and putting the Hobby back into this instead of the obsession it has become for me.... I know how my mind works... I am a VERY driven individual.. too much to a fault at times... in this case with my display I have come to be driven to build the "best"(in my own eyes), most powerful, highest Tech display in my area... and thats a problem because it would never stop for me... and I didnt allow others to help with design,setup, planning, deployment, or teardown.. in my own mind I wanted it to be "MY" display and no one elses... and thats just plain not who I am and it came to be it was not very Christmas-Centric.

OK I forgot about 2 LOR PC controller kits that I ordered during the LOR sale.. they just got here today... still sealed up in the box... they are the PC board kits (they need to be soldered).. and contain the High-Power Heat-Sinks...

I will take $200 for both + shipping (or local pickup).. I prefer not to separate them, since they are still sealed in the box...

and to those who have asked, I am Keeping my Cosmic Color ribbons... since these run standalone i can use them as accent lighting for my home (through DMX) or as standalone in a static display.. I am also hanging on to my RS-485 adapters as well as the Server I used to run the show..
