  • 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.

Looking For A New Place To Buy Led's From

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I'm looking for some help my local store in my town were I usually buy all my lights from has told me that they are no longer going to stock any c7 or C9 LED lights anymore, so after they had a throw a bucket of water on me and I was revived, I figured I'd come straight here and ask the most knowledgeable people in the industry where is the best places to buy LED lights nowadays. Keep in mind of course, I am a user of LIght-o-rama, so not looking for lights to use on a static display, just like most people nowadays I twinkled my lights, dim them and use all the effects that most of us nowadays use. I'm sure I can make it through the season with what I have, and I know people like Paul from creative displays has a huge sale early in the beginning of the year. I'm just trying to find out who else is out there and the best light for my needs. Thanks in advance everybody for your help.

A long time ago I did try using the LED c9 retro bulbs but they do not work well with what i do.. I have been noticing a lot of companies selling their retro LEDs and they claim they are dimmable, knowing all the pain and agony that I go through yearly with my non-replaceable C9, I would happily consider doing retro bulbs as well if that seems to be what's working best in the industry. So im looking for a advice/ help from everybody . :)
