  • 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.

    How To Get Certain Colors With Pixel Nodes?

    Recommended Posts

    This is the first year Ive used RGB nodes. Im using the non intelligent type. Does anyone know what percentages of Red, Green or Blue you use to get the color orange? Is there a chart somewhere that shows what to use to get other colors?

    You might want to start with your computer.

    Open Windows Paint.

    Click "Edit colors"

    Select the color you want

    Note the lower right corner where is has Red: Green: & Blue:

    Those numbers should get you real close.

    Im not on the computer that has the LOR software but when youre doing colors other than red green or blue, dont you just turn on specific colors at a certain intensity to get various colors? Like red green and blue at 100% is white. So I thought that like red at 50% and green at 50% would be a particular color. I guess Im not understanding how it works. Can someone elaborate on how exactly to do it. Do you do it through the intensity tool?

    Here is a problem using LOR for programing RGB. LOR uses % on there intensity so you will have to convert the color number to % for i to work.

    Example Orange: Red 100%

    Green 50%

    Blue 0%

    Purple: Red 50%

    Green 0%

    Blue 50%

    You will have to make a chart converting the numbers into % with 255 being 100%, 128 being 50% & so on. The problem with this is you can not get true colors. (this is what I have found)

    You would be better using Vixen or LSP

    I DO NOT HAVE & HAVE NOT tried LOR 3 this program may solve the above statements.

    Just wondering...why not drive these as RGB channels where all this "math" is done for you and you just input a color.

    Another issue is that percentages don't work 100% of the time because of differences between RGB lights.
