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.

Never heard of them before reading your post, but after seeing the product must say I am intrigued.  I'll be keeping an eye out for any testimonials as well.

Never tried it, but the results seem to be similar to BlissLights Firefly projector.  I have it in blue and LOVE it.  I've attached a picture to give you an idea as to what it looks like sitting 20 or so feet from the house.

If we have a police chopper over our house, I've got bigger problems than my laser light :D  I'll arm myself and call in reinforcement! Nothing exciting happens here in the far northern suburbs of Atlanta.  I hear sirens about 3 times a month and it is usually coming from an ambulance.

I sell BlissLights and they are out of stock across the board until mid-January. 

They are a wonderful product! Instructions say not to attach them to a dimmer pack but I haven't actually tried it yet.

 

However, they are THE most popular part of my display this year. We have ten in a very condensed space and it is truly magical.

How did you folks get your BlissLights to work? Mine is pretty much useless!

 

Oh no!  Really?  I just plugged in the little prong things (same as landscape lighting) into the blisslight transformer and plug that into an extension cord.  Where did you buy yours and are you dealing with temps less than -15 degrees?  Dumb question I know, but thinking of every reason it may not work properly.

It's all about positioning. What color is your unit and how is it setup? Also, is there a lot of ambient light?
