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.

Lor Sequences

Recommended Posts

:) After seeing all the different displays on the internet I like so many others got bitten by "Christmas lights" bug. I have always had a static display at my home but last year I bought a LASOC from HD and got hooked. I decided I wanted to have more control over the sequences of the lights and made up my mind that I would have to move up to a LOR for 2011. Well in theory that sounded really easy. I downloaded the S2 software from LOR and decided to master the craft of sequencing lights. SHOCKER! You guys make it look so simple, BOY was I surprised!

Anyway to get to my question, I reviewed the tutorials on LOR website and even downloaded some of the sequences that other had uploaded for the newbies. After downloading several of these I tried to run them but kept getting an error message that there was no "audio file" to run the sequence.

Can someone help me out as to why the sequences want play. When downloading am I doing something wrong and not getting the music downloaded along with the sequences or is not included.

Eveyone said you need to get started early in the year, now I know why!

Your help would be greatly appricated.

For LOR to playback, it needs a sound file associated with it. So if you downloaded Silent Night by Josh Groban, you would need to find the same MP3 or wav Silent Night by Josh Groban file and associate it with your sequence.

Otherwise, the song would not be in sync with the lights

Most purchase legal copies of their songs from rhapsody or amazon. If you use Itunes, you will need to convert the song from MP4 to MP3 or wav.

If the song was edited, then you would need to contact the original programmer for assistance.

It has been said, sharing songs is like taking your family of 10 to a buffet and paying for 1 meal and sharing it with 9 other people. It's not right to steel from the artist who does this for a living. I always purchase what I use because it's only fair to them.

have a good one!
