  • 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.

Clean Out The Attic! Led And Incandescent For Sale!

Recommended Posts

Hopefully I have gotten your attention...

 

I have decided that I no longer like holding on to 150,000 lights in my attic when I only use probably 1/2 of them, so I am looking to get rid of them.  What can I promise you?  I will not send you a light string that doesn't work on my end.  I will take every string (which are all individually wrapped in zip lock baggies) and I will plug it in.  If the lights work, great, if not, tossed to the side.  All of the lights are used, but were used extremely lightly (no pun intended).  As I mentioned, in between seasons, I individually zip lock bagged all of the strings.

 

Here is what I have with pricing:

 

$7 each (60) strings of full wave 70 count C6 LEDs in red color (these are from one of our preferred vendors)

$7 each (60) strings of full wave 70 count C6 LEDs in green color (these are from one of our preferred vendors)

$7 each (60) strings of full wave 70 count C6 LEDs in warm white color (these are from one of our preferred vendors)

 

$8 each (16) strings of 100 count 5mm GE LEDs in red color

$5 each (36) strings of 60 count 5mm Walmart LEDs in red color (don't let the Walmart name fool you, these are bright and dim quite nicely with a snubber)

$5 each (48) strings of 60 count 5mm Walmart LEDs in green color (see above)

 

$2 each (12) sets of incandescent net lights in red color

$2 each (12) sets of incandescent net lights in green color

$2 each (12) sets of incandescent net lights in white color

 

$1 each TONS of other mini incandescent lights... probably mostly red, green & white as that is what I used in my display...

 

PM me if interested... this might take some time for me to go through all of the lights, but I will move as quickly as i can...

One other thing.  If you are in Florida, please let me know that because maybe there are some other items that I haven't posted which are too large to ship (custom made flood light assemblies and twig trees with red green and white incandescent minis on them)

I assume you're referring to the twig trees?  I am making new twig trees into RGB twig trees.  My old trees still have incandescent lights on them and I'm not sure whether to strip them and sell the white wire lights (which are harder to get) or sell the twig tree as a whole with the white wire lights on them... if someone was local, I figured they might be interested... they are too big to ship I think...  Same with the custom dual flood light assemblies.

It would look as though they're all used.

Ya, sorry, the bulb looks just like a normal mini light, smooth.  No faceted like most LED minis.  And they are green, which I forgot to put... :P
