  • 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.

Sequences tied to Music Frequency??

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I posted this same question on the LOR forum so some of you may be seeing this twice. But, I am hoping to cast a wide net....


I am curious if anyone knows of a capability for either LOR Software or third party software that can "read" all of the frequencies of a given song and help with sequencing.

Specifically, in my head, I envision having groups of lights tied together by the frequency of the music. For example, for the low pass bass (drums) I'll have one group of lights which flash to the beat of the drums. In another grouping, I'll have lights matching the mid-range of a song (i.e. rhythm guitar) and finally, another grouping for the higher frequency (lead guitar).

My desired end state is to be able to have multiple sequences all tied to the greatest rock group of all time... Metallica!

In a perfect world, I would have 5 lights all tied to the Drums. One for the Base, one for the snare, one high hat, etc.. and the lights would all be sequenced to the drum track.

Is any of this actually possible?


Oh, and lastly, aside from LOR and WOWlights, is there any other sites where I can purchase sequenced music? Or really, any place that I can request/purchase custom sequences?

I don’t know of any easy way of doing that. I did try something with my choir stand 4 types of choir section bass, tenor,... I used the beat wizard but it toke to long for me to make one for a short song. I would email LOR help desk and see if they have any good ideas.

A lot of places (eBay, and google search has a bunch)have on-line sequences for sale. But you pay for what you get. I would check reviews and see what people say. Attached is one that has YouTube of sequence that are nicely done. I hope you have luck in finding it and let us know.
