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.

Lowe's Has Lights On The Shelf

Recommended Posts

I stop at my Lowes every morning on my way to work. They have trees out, and that's it. They did have about 7 pallets on the ground all Christmas stuff, but looked like they where taking inventory. Way up high there must be 25 pallets full of Christmas. 7 or so pallets are all lights. I need 160 strands of red incan and 60 green incan. Wanted to buy them last year after Christmas, but none to be found.

I've read in the past that if you talk to the floor manager about your intent on making a large purchase, that they might give you a price break. Give a try and see what happens. Doesn't hurt to ask.

A correction to the price of lights. Clear and Multi are $2.69. The solid color lights are $2.98. Today they had in stock blue and gold I bought some of those.

Hi Michael,did you notice that they have gone to a new vendor?Project Source who makes their home lighting is making their minis now.Our Lowes had a lot of the Project source minis and the old Holiday Living minis.Be interested to see how they compare.

The colored lights are all Holiday so far. The clears were the other vendor. I have been buying green, gold, and blue. If you buy colors, buy them real soon. They start to disappear pretty quick.

The Holiday brand is 22.1 ft with lights, 2.7" between lights, and 18" lead wire. This is from a box of green lights with green wire. They are 2 amps per string of a hundred.

Lowe's in Milledgeville, Ga is just starting to set up their Christmas display. They have the layout for different lights, looks like a lot of space for LEDs this year. Haven't seen their big items yet. Kmart looked like they had at least half of their Christmas up and waiting for Halloween to move out so they can bring the rest out.

Stopped by a Lowes in Norfolk, Va. Nothing out to get excited over. Had a few things of ornaments but I did not see any lights or trees. I will be checking another Lowes tomorrow as well as Big Lots.

My lowes is finally stocking lights. if you guys need to buy a large amount of colored lights like I did, 150 boxes red and 62 boxes green. order them online at Lowes website and do pick up in store. you are then guaranteed to get them. I went to pick mine up today, and they are still pulling down pallets trying to locate all of my lights. he said once they run out, there out, and cannot order more. after me there are only 18 boxes of red left. he said all lights have to be on shelves by October 1st for his store.

It appears that the Christmas light aisle in Lowes is about 70% LED and 30% incandescent this year. There were also gaps in the incandescent mini sections.

Guess Michael B. has been heading south to gather up more lights......
