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.

That is a great price on them, I just wish they had a smaller count to buy than 50.  I could probably get away with 25, bu 50 is probably pushing it.  Thanks for the links.

There's going to be a group buy announced shortly (Feb 1) on Renard SS series.  Two of the Rendard SS24's will eat a back of 50 and give you back two as change.

Correct.  A Renard SS 24 has 24 110VAC channels; two controllers would use up 48 of the 50  vampire plugs in the bag, leaving two left.  Group buy on the Renard SS 24 (can run in DMX mode) will happen starting Feb 1.

so, unless I am mistaken.. We buy 2 renard SS24 controllers and we get 50 vampire plugs.. or am I just totally lost? 

 

I guess I helped confuse the issue.  I was reacting to Toozie21's comment about not wanting to buy 50 plugs.  I was giving him a reason to do so.  The group buy won't include the female plugs for the 24 outputs; they are obtained outside the group buy, just like the controller cabinet is.  I have five of the SS24 controllers, as well as 5 LOR CTB16PC controllers.  All the SS24's use vampire plugs on their outputs.  The LOR controllers would have, if I had realized I could buy them for that price, instead of using Dollar Tree extension cords.

Yeah, They usually discount them after Christmas until they sell out and that's it until October sometime. Must of been enough demand this year  for them to bring in some more.
