  • 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 am Clark Griswold. Along with decorating my house in all white mini lights, C-7s and icicle lights, I wrap about 30-40 pine trees about 30-40 ft up each tree. Of course I have the obligatory inflatables, pathway markers and my Pittsburgh Stelers Santa being projected from my EZ UP projector.

    Hi Folks, We are doing some last minute liquidations for 2019. We have the following items that we can ship same day at a ridiculous savings 10 Watt RGB Flood Lights - 60 available $10 piece. We are selling these in lots of 6. These units are all brand new, have heavy duty ground stakes and remotes. You would probably need to supply your own battery. LEDs are COBY, not some generic Chinese crap. 20 Watt RGB Floods - 19 available. Same as above Any of the above are $60 for a case of 6. Yes, this is a steal, but we are getting ut of this category and want to move these out. We can probably ship them anywhere in the country for $20. We also have modular commercial grade dual head RGB floods like the picture shows. These are super heavy duty commercial grade and are very bright. We have 17 - dual 30 watt lights left and 6 of the dual 80 watt lights left. The 30 watts are $50 each and the 80 watt are $75 each. We paid $135 and $237.00 for these so this is quite the discount. Shipping would be calculated depending on how many are in an order. If anyone wants to make a take all offer we are all ears. Thanks, Dan

  7. Hi everyone, Just in case anyone is interested, I was informed by the folks at Mr. Christmas that they will no longer be producing their projector line. This includes the Panoramic projector, Lights and Sounds of Christmas controller, Musical Laser Projector, etc...I was fortunate enough to be able to buy all of their existing inventory. If anyone is interested in purchasing any amount, please email or PM me and I will be more than happy to work out a good deal for them. They always did a great job with their projectors and it is a shame that they will no longer be producing that line. My email is [email protected] Thanks, Dan
