  • 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.

David, The Christmas light hangers worked great and were a snap to use! I am glad I purchased them. I hung the regular icycle lights from them and had no issues. I will use them for several years to come. Thank you for making a product like this otherwise I would not have been able to hang up my Christmas lights that I enjoy so much. I just had the leaf guard installed this year then went "Oh My, how I am going to hang my Christmas lights?" Then I found your product and knew they would allow me to hang them. Thanks again for a great product, Brenda After many years of not decorating for Christmas for various reasons, we decided to tackle it this year after our three-year-old granddaughter requested it. It was my job to pick everything out and when I purchased the lights and decorations the gutters with leaf guards didn't even cross my mind. I just assumed they sold the appropriate hangers in the stores and that my husband would get the necessary installation supplies. We ended up going shopping together for the hangers but couldn't seem to find anything that would exactly work. We went back home, drug out a ladder, and took a good look at what we were facing and that's when he decided he was going to have to customize it somehow. His idea was one that would have worked but it would be time and labor intensive and he didn't have a lot of time to spare. And it involved making a permanent change to the gutters to which I was opposed. He got frustrated with me for shooting his idea down and told me unless I found something better that was our only option. I knew he was right but couldn't stand the thought of having to drill holes into our only two year old gutters so I immediately started looking online. My first two search sessions came up empty. A couple of mediocre ideas were out there but nothing that really lived up to our need. I was just about to give up looking for the night and go to bed when I did a third search and found your website. Thank goodness! Your hooks work beautifully and as you can see the lights are straight as can be. My husband said they were easy to work with and only required a little tightening after the lights were in place. And we can easily re-use them in years to come. The lights were put up on November 25th and they lasted beautifully through 40 mph winds and rain the very night they were hung! This picture was taken on December 6th, 11 days into hanging and still looking great. Thanks again for your clever invention and for making them available. They brought about a peaceful resolution to our dilemma! Merry Christmas! Kristi
