  • 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.

  • My favorite Christmas story
    As a child I remember seeing my first mega Christmas display. It was at our local mall. I didn't want to leave. I was totally fascinated by all of the lights and decorations. I told my mom I wanted to live at the mall.

  • About my display
    My display used to be much larger. Now my display is much smaller because Garage Door Decors keep me very busy during the Holiday Season. I miss my big display but it makes me happy to know I am helping so many people with their displays with the Garage Door Decors.

  9. Hello, I set up the website mainly for the Planet Christmes members to make ordering easier. The price on the website is the discounted price. The difference is when I sell them on Ebay there is a handleing charge and other hidden fees that I charge. On Ebay they would end up being approx. $20.00 more when all is said and done. Thank You! Tim
  10. Hello, This is Tim Mann. I've been working on it til all hours of the morning this past week and I will be completing it late tonight or early Saturday am. I am putting together a website to make ordering easier, with the response I have received this year it would have been to complicated to do it any other way. I will send everyone the link to the site. The Website is actually up and running, but I am adding the rest of the designs to it tonight. You can take a look and even order from it now at www.creativeimpactgraphicsco.com I am sorry I missed my deadline last night (Thursday). I do these in my spare time and I haven't had much of it in the last few months, but I am caught up now. Eventually this may become a full time business for me thanks to all of you fine people at Planet Christmas, but for right now I am doing it because I enjoy it. So please bare with me. Thank You!
  11. To All, Yeah! I am finally back. :waycool: Thank you all for your patience, alot of you have been waiting quite awhile for a reply to your emails about the Garage Door Decors. It has been a crazy few of months for me but I have finalized a schedule that I wanted to inform all of you about. This Thursday evening I will have all of the designs and pricing for this years Garage Door Decors. At that time I will be posting all the info on Planet Christmas and I will also send out an email to all of you with all of the designs, pricing and ordering information. Once I receive the order it will take approx. 2-3 weeks for you to receive them (I will do my absolute best to get them to you as fast as possible). This year I am offering: "Santas Workshop" for 2 car and 1 car garage doors, "Snowman Family" for 2 car garage doors and "NEW FOR 2007" "Santas Reindeer Barn" for two car garage doors. These will also be available on Ebay, but if you order directly from me you will receive the Planet Christmas Discount and not have to pay the $15.00 handling fee that I have to charge to cover the Ebay fees. Once again Thanks for your patience and your interest in Door Decor by Creative Impact Graphics.

  12. To All Members: My name is Tim Mann with Creative Impact Graphics. You may be familiar with my product. I make the garage door mural decorations called Door Decor. Anyway, I have had alot of people from Planet Christmas email me this year that are interested in purchasing my Door Decors. I moved (I will never move again) and when I moved Comcast turned off my internet service instead of transferring it. Therefore I lost all of my email contacts and all of the info from the Planet Christmas Members that wanted a Door Decor. I need to put the word out to all the members and let them know my contact info. as soon possible. Can all of you help me? I don't want to disappoint the members I have been talking to. Also I have been getting emails from another Christmas website in Texas and I don't remeber the name of the organization, if you can help there too that would be great. Thank You very much!
