  • 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.

  1. Being merciful to people, also demonstrate compassion toward the hurting and needy. Be inspirational to those who are in ill health, people who have lost a loved one, and those who are in a disheartened state or in life challenges. Emotionally wounded people cannot help but be highly sensitive. Words hit them like whips. It is vital that they be treated verbally with the careful tenderness you would use if you were dressing gaping physical wounds. Once we understand the seriousness of emotional wounds, it’s surprisingly easy to employ the Christ like graces of turning the other cheek and using the soft answer that turns away wrath. God wants us to show compassion to those who are hurting and suffering, as if we are serving Christ himself! Our willingness to show mercy to others signifies that we ourselves have received mercy. When we are spiritually sick with a hardened heart, we are under the bondage of an unforgiving spirit. What typically happens is that a double standard settles into place. On the one hand, we want God to have unlimited patience with our shortcomings. Here’s my whole point. There is no place for Christians to build walls, point fingers, condemn, judge, and cast others away. Seeing someone in need and offering help is a great way to put compassion into practice. Spend some time sharing, helping, and treating people with good intentions. A friendly smile to a stranger, holding the door for a person carrying bags, or letting someone pass you on the highway. These are simple ways of showing compassion for our fellow human beings. A kind word or even a Christmas display can change the outlook of a persons life for the better.
  2. This info didn't come from snopes. This information was verified thru a person at a corporate office at a walmart distribution center in Midway,TN And as far as the economy goes, you need to do your homework and look at Gatt, WTO, Trilateral Commission.
  3. Walmart will not be carrying any villages this year, and the same for lowes carrying the aminated villages, (ferriswheel, swings, train, zinger) this year, Since walmart bought 40% of lowes (Stock / Stores) their cutting back there line up on all christmas. Also we see theres not many incandescent lights left to buy on the shelves anymore, because On 12/19/2007 president bush had congress to ban all incandescent light(s) for a new energy law, starting on 1/1/2012
  4. In the Bible it is written there are two calendars. The goverment goes by the moon (lunar) and the nights are named after planets, (monday thru sunday) ( janurary thru december) The calenday of God goes by the Sun (Solar) this is the light of the Elect. The first day of the Solar calendar starts on the spring equinox. not janurary the first.
  5. On 12/19/2007 president bush had congress to ban all incandescent light(s) for a new energy law, starting on 1/1/2012
  6. People with asthma are often allergic to ****roaches. Keep your house as clean as possible to discourage ****roaches from hanging around. Also, did you know that the FDA allows manufacturers a certain percentage by weight of ****roach parts in chocolate? The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has set limits "...to establish maximum levels of natural or unavoidable defects in foods for human use that present no health hazard." Such unavoidable defects include insect fragments in our food. Preground coffee is all processed from huge stockpiles of coffee which are infested with ****roaches, it’s impossible to separate them so they all get ground up together and the preground coffee you buy is actually a blend of coffee beans and ****roaches (the same goes for chocolate of course!). Here is a few samples of food the (FDA) allowes you to eat Blackberries (Drupelet, Canned or Frozen) 10 or more whole insects or equivalent per 500g Chocolate – 60 or more insect fragments and 1 or more rodent hairs per 100g Curry powder – 100 or more insect fragments and 4 or more rodent hairs per 25g Fig paste – 13 or more insect heads per 100g Red fish / ocean perch – 3% of the fillets examined contained 1 or more copepods accompanied by pus pockets Whole ginger – 3mg or more of mammilian excreta per pound Macaroni and noodle products – 225 insect fragments or more and 4.5 insect hairs per 225g Mushrooms (canned and dried) – 20 or more maggots of any size and 75 mites per 100g Ground pepper – 475 insect fragments and 2 or more rodent hairs per 50g Ground thyme – 925 insect fragments and 2 or more rodent hairs per 10g Canned tomatoes – 2 or more maggots and 10 or more fly eggs (1:5 if both found) per 500g Chocolate anyone ? I posted this to let people know the truth of what their eating. Eating animal (fats,Sugar) is the cause of all Bacterial disease's, (cancer) in the Colon. The (FDA) allows the use of Bacterial Lime in sugar. Animal fats have parasites in their blood stream. It's what you dont know that can kill you. www.therodofiron.org
  7. You are Correct ! www.therodofiron.org
  8. Christ was concieved on the 25. born in september 25-29
  9. Here is a website that has a lot of villages pictures, go to www.rivercityvillagers.com and click on the photo gallery.
  10. I seen one of the lowes in TN has already taged there bins with christmas tags. one of the workers said the shelves had to be stocked by October the first. I also seen one of the walgreens stores is putting some christmas items on the top shelves.
  11. Sugar comes from two different sources. sugar beets, and sugar cane stalks. All cookies, cakes, have this sugar as a added source. The companys add a live bacteria to this sugar called ( Powdered Lime ) this is the same used in concrete materials. its also used for killing sage grass in hay fields. This bacteria lives on the amino acids, vitiamins, minerals, of our flesh body, untill they break down the structure of our organic organs. ( Liver, pancreas )over a time period disease ( live bacteria ), takes over the colon as it breaks down our red blood cells. Read on the labels what you eat and drink. All soft drinks have this same powdered lime bacterial in their products.
  12. Leviticus 3:16 And the priest shall burn them upon the altar: it is the food of the offering made by fire for a sweet savor: all the fat is the LORD's. Leviticus 3:17 It shall be a perpetual statute for your generations throughout all your dwellings, that ye eat neither fat nor blood. Leviticus 11:7 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven-footed, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Leviticus11:8 Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you. The swine is a scavenger made to clear the earth. it has no sweat glands to filter out the posion from its blood stream, and its stomach cannot regerate its food. the swine is full of 19 different parasites. in other words (Maggots) www.therodofiron.org
  13. We bought one and used it in december last year. its works better using the computer to animate the scrolling board. it says for indoor use only, but i had in 25-35 degree weather and it worked fine. Everone was impressed with it. www.therodofiron.org
  14. Two years ago we did a 400/800 (CT) Current Transfer system, with a 37.5 transformer system. with a Digital electro meter base. It's set up for 4 / 200 amp breaker boxes. last year we had 100.000 light and they was on from 6 pm to around 10 evernight. It took 26 / 20 amp breakers to do the display. leaving the lights on this long at night didnt strain the meter base at all. In fact for the month of december the electriic bill was $ 397.00 for the display.
  15. Hello Roger: Welcome to PC. Were not to far away from you, we are on the west side of Greeneville. in Parrottsville. In 2009 we are adding new silhouettes displays, scrolling boards, Christmas movies on tv in places, more led's on trees, new airblowns. Im working on a new display, its a 23'x100' Dinosaur park. We hope to have 200.000 lights this year. If i can help you in anyway let me know. Stan & Jan Lewis
