  • 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.

  • 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.

Fs: Rgb And Dc Lighting Supplies

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


Earlier this year I bought a bunch of stuff from Ray Wu not really sure on what I would use.  I have slowly but surely made my decisions over the summer, purchasing a bunch of new stuff, keeping some of the original stuff, etc...  I have the following items that I really don't want to keep sitting around in my garage and would like to let go cheap.  Most of these supplies are applicable to any and all kinds of DC lighting.


1.  4-core 20AWG white wire hook-up wire as shown in the link below.  I have two of the 50m spools which were $15 each, so $30 total...  I will cut that in half.  $15 total.



2.  5V 25W IP68 waterproof power supply as shown in the link below.  I have three of these that were $7.50 each, how about $15 for all three?



3.  100 pairs of the 2-core white waterproof pigtail connector pairs as shown in the link below.  These were $30 for 100 pairs, how about $20 for all 100 pairs?



4.  100 pairs of the 3-core white waterproof pigtail connector pairs as shown in the link below.  These were $50 for 100 pairs, how about $30 for all 100 pairs?



5.  faceted milky white C9 bulb covers for pixels as shown in the link below.  These were $12 for 100 covers, make me an offer.



6.  faceted clear C9 bulb covers for pixels as shown in the link below.  These were also $12 for 100 covers, again, make me an offer.



7.  faceted milky white C7 bulb covers for pixels as shown in the link below.  These were $10 for 100 covers... make me an offer.



On all of the above, my main motivation is to get them out of the garage... I hate keeping stuff around that I have decided not to use... this comes after years of hoarding stuff and dealing with the pain of trying to clean it all out after years of build-up.  If you feel you want to offer something below my prices, definitely do so!  Who knows, maybe nobody wants this stuff and you might get something even cheaper than the dirt cheap pricing above!  PLEASE PM ME IF INTERESTED...


Thanks for looking.
