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.

I updated my LOR to S5 this year and my Mega Tree quit working so we have tried everything to fix it.  While trying something today, opening S5 not saving anything because nothing appeared to be working and when I closed it now none of my lights are working.  My controllers are just blinking.  I can go into the hardware and hit refresh and they will stop blinking and I can even manually pick lights but when I close it they start blinking again?  Is it something with my Comm 3?  Anything helps!!!

TRY RESETTING THE COMPUTER, THE DIFFERENT PROGRAMS CANT SHARE THE COMM SO IF ONE IS OPENED BEFORE THE OTHER THEY WONT WORK.  THE LIGHTS BLINK WHEN THE COM IS NOT TALKING, SO EITHER IN-BETWEEN THE SHOWS, OR WHEN IT IS OFF THEY SHOULD BLINK

And by mega tree, RGB or traditional lights?

how are you running the RGB mega tree?  what type of controller?  

I had an issue when I went from S3 to S4, my internet port quit working to connect to my RGB network switch.  Can you ping the RGB controller from the computer?  Also, check your network settings in the new S5.  My guess is you are missing the network for the RGBs in the new S5.

as for nothing working...ensure the LOR Control Panel is loaded (the little blue/red light bulb).  It has to be off to get the hardware utility to work, but re-enable your show after you are done.
