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.

Lowes Christmas 2010

Recommended Posts

Lowes has some really cool inflatables and I would love to have some of them, but I can't justify spending $128 on an inflatable. That's 2/3 of the way to another LOR controller or 45 boxes of mini lights. I'll probably be able to find one at a garage sale in the next few years anyway for next to nothing. I was able to get the $80 Nativity Scene for $5 in March!

Am I not remembering right, or did Lowes raise their inflatable prices signifigantly this year? They seemed signifigantly higher when I went through Lowes today.

Yes, Lowes is trying to get ahead of the game. Only store with high prices.Home Depot has normal prices like they should be. Lowes raised their price so they can get the price they want when the half off sales come and people really buy inflatables.

I just bought 2 more from Lowes yesterday. Don't want to fight the people or not be able to get the ones I want by waiting. That makes 4 from Lowes and I need one more to finish up there.

Lowes has beat the system of not getting the price they want when the sales come around.

Now that Lowes is is fully stocked I will be making my purchase almost $600 but can't chance waiting to see if the ones I want are still left at 50% off. If they are i will buy more and then sell them, plus they have a 90 Day Return Policy so you can always bring them back and get an adjustment if you know the right store that will do that for seasonal goods

That would also be one I purchased at Lowes too. I think I will be bringing back the Christmas Tree Lot this year and the RV will fit perfectly in there. Congrat on your purchase
