  • 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.

Who Uses The Lor Mini Director Mp3?

Recommended Posts

I got one in a trade last year, but never got around to hooking it up this year.  I too would like to hear experiences in using it.  positives/negatives. 

 

I can see one problem being changing the show on the fly.  When traffic would get really bad, I'd take a song or two out to keep the busy street down the road from getting blocked.  Can't really do it with the Mini Director.

I have used it the last two years and love it. I like it because I can use my computer to change sequences etc. while the show it playing.   I make changes on the fly with another SD card, just takes a few minutes to adjust quantity of songs and then change out.

I'm glad to see that my purchase is in good company.  I have read the manual that came with it and want to verify that you guys are using a 9v power supply plugged into a timer to start your show.  Also, is the majority just changing out the SD cards with new shows instead of using the 1,2,and 3 trigger inputs.  Is anybody doing anything different that just plug and play?

I have been using it and very happy with it. leaves my computer free for me to play with. i have been reading that if you get into really high channel counts it does slow down. But we are talking pixel level channel counts.

I lovd it. I personally kep two cards...one with the show runninga nd another in case I wanted to do a swap....I tended to have people ask for "call me maybe" or "Gangnam Style" alot, so I kept those two on a seperate card ($9) and could just fire those two up when needed.

 

I loved it. Ran the amp off that and split the speaker and the FM out to the street. No need to tie my computer up.

you can use a power cord and timer or it will run as long as one of your controllers has power, this year i just put my controlers on timers but in the future i will buy a power cord for the director unit and put it on a timer would be the best solution.
