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.

Hello!

I am finishing up the soundtrack to the Halloween show this year. Well, by finishing up I mean scrapping everything for a 3rd time, but this time I think I got it!! But I need to know is this song too much? It is Name of the Game by The Crystal Method. I will be using the non-expletive version. But the innuendo is still there. Here is a link to the samples on amazon.com.

I already have the expletive version which is a no go. But the other version still may be too much.

And remember, this will be blasting on loud speakers Halloween night.

Depends on your intended audience. If you're trying to keep it kid-friendly, I'd say no, don't use it.

I would say no....

I don't know what the show you have planned it but when I hear that song clip and Halloween it makes no sense.

Nothing to do with it being explicit or clean...I just don't get it...

Hmmm......

I may have left out important information. We do a Halloween show every year and this is a song in the soundtrack during a fight scene in the show.

If you click on my website last year's show is the 2nd video.

There will be dialogue, and punching sounds over the music.

It makes more sense if it's a fight scene.

Is that link under the banner your website?

It takes me to an under construction website for a clothing store?

I determined that I really wanted this song in and that a small portion was no way appropriate.................

I seached and searched and found an instrumental version and I can with the original.

Booyah!!!
