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.

Hill Country has a slight yellow/golden hue that is more close to the incandescent, while the diamond white has a more brilliant white only look. I am working on a video clip to show all three whites next to an incandescent.

So what is the difference between the Blitzen Blue and Powder Blue in the M5 lights?

Also will the Princess Pink be available in the M5 or is the Sugarplum Purple close to the same color?

Dan

Blitzen Blue is the traditional LED bright/rich blue color. Powder Blue is a softer lighter color (Think teal without any green). Princess Pink is available in M5 and is definitely pink.

Hi Deb,

Hope you had a great Christmas with your family!

The Icicles are 2in bulb spacing on drops, 6in drop spacing; drops are 3, 5, and 6 light per drop. 7 feet bulb to bulb, 8 feet total. Most folks use 7.5 feet as a design measurement to get even spacing between strands in a long run. The "rare" colors yellow, orange, purple, and multi all require a minimum of 12 strands. If you are close to this please email me [email protected] and we will see if we can partner you with someone to get the minimum needed.

We have been receiving a lot of requests on the C7/C9 retrofits and have sourced a reliable factory for both sizes. We have a sample pack shipping from China and once we put them through our QC we will beginning selling in the pre-order. Initial price on a Red C7 will be $0.72 and Red C9 $0.91. We hope to have these in place by Jan 1, 2012 and post a complete color/price list which will leave plenty of time for you to add to your order.

Jacob J. Dell

On these retrofits will the c9's have 3 LEDS or 5 LEDS? I hope to be purchasing green and red c9 retros...to the tune of about 225 each...should my budget allow. Also I will be looking for some c6 or 5mm. I was hoping to use the same company for all my purchases this year so I am anxiously awaiting your price list on the c9 retros.

Sorry for the delay on these we didn't expect much interest, but were very suprised by how many folks need these for their display :cool:

Jacob,

Can you please clarify the "Minimum order of 12 strands is required"

Is that 12 strands of the same color and count or can this be a mixture of various sizes and colors????

Hi Dave,

The "Minimum order of 12 strands is required" only applies to rare colors of icicles (yellow, orange, purple, and multi) as shown on page nine of our catalog (http://www.magicinthesky.com/lighting/2012.pdf). Anything else we have you can buy one strand at a time.

Jacob,

Have you now excluded all of the "white wire" led's from the 12 strand minimum??? or is the minimum still applicable ??

Any luck on a video showing the different White's vs Indys?

Thanks.

I'm having trouble using the Excelsheet. It says it's corrupted. I've tried several machines and got the same error.

I had to pull the sheet remotely from my phone to fix a c6 icicle price and something went wrong at the webserver. Am working on something to fix over the weekend. The PDF or online system are the best fix for now... if you email me I can send you a copy [email protected]

Jacob, I tried to place my order last night and Google Checkout won't let me because it say's that I don't have a valid shipping address for Magic in the sky. I'm in Canada and my address listed was correct. I think there is a problem with them thinking you are not going to ship to Canada.

I sent you an email about it.
