  • 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.

  • 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.

Custom Sequencing Available Starting Mid July

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I am about to mark my 3rd year doing light shows on July 4th. This July 4th will be my 3rd annual Independence Day show and this Christmas will be my 3rd annual Christmas show. I really enjoy syncronizing music and would like to extend my services to the PC community. Beginning mid July I will be available for custom sequencing. I realize that most of you don't know me personally. I will be happy to synchronize a test sequence of 30 seconds to a minute so you can determine if you want to use me or not. While I enjoy synchronizing all music I tend to do my best work in musical scores with no lyrics. ex. transiberian orchestra, pirates of the caribbean. I tend to get the most compliments on music like that. Here is a link to my christmas '10 video

. I have video of my 09 fourth of july show on there as well (which isn't that grand because it was my first show). I do have video of my 2010 independence day show but it is too long for youtube. My christmas '10 video is poor quality and was shot new years eve after controller problems and snow after snow (which is unusual for TN) had wounded my show.

If anyone is interested or has any questions just let me know. I hope to build a quality reputation amoung the PC community for custom work.
