  • Christmas 2017 countdown has begun. Most people reveal their displays the day after Thanksgiving. 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.
  • 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.

    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.

  7. 4' and 6' LED Twig Trees in Multi Color and White for Sale

    Hi Guys, Sorry, for some reason the replies aren't getting forwarded to my email. Sorry for the confusion, the price is each, not for a full case, I wish they were that price :). The branches are actually quite long. For a 6' tree the top of the tree is probably 4+ feet in diameter. These are not big box type trees. The twinkling on the multi color gives a great effect. Sorry for the confusion!
  8. Couldn't figure out how to edit my previous posts with the LED Lights so I am listing these separately. We have a limited amount of our LED Twig Trees available that we would like to sell in the off season. This is a very popular item for us. It is made by the same factory that manufacturers our LED light strands and is exclusive to Holiday Projectors. These trees are very well made, all steel construction. Each branch is hand wrapped so there are no exposed wires except for the lead plug in. The multi-color trees have about 10% of the lights that change colors which give it a neat twinkling effect. The white is static. The trees are available in white or black trunks/branches. The pricing for Planet Christmas members is 50% off. There are 4 to a case pack and saves quite a bit to ship in full case packs rather than singles, due to the size. Shipping for a case pack of 4 is about $25. A single tree can be anywhere from $12-20. LED Twig Trees.pdf
  9. LED Light Sale of a Lifetime

    Hi All, To answer some questions. Yes, the LED's are one piece, they are not replaceable. I have been buying from the same factory since 2006 which should tell you something. The multi color whites have cool white LED's in the strand, not warm white. Spools are $20 each, in cases of 4. That would be $80 a case. I'm going to list some other items in a bit that may be of interest to you guys...any questions feel free to ask away.
  10. LED Light Sale of a Lifetime

    Hello Everyone, I wanted to share a great opportunity buy if anyone is looking for LED lights in 5mm, M6 and C7. These lights are all Brand New in boxes or shrink wrapped spools. Please see the attachments for the Qtys and pricing. I'm quite confident that it is as low pricing as you'll ever see from my research. All the LED Lights that we sell are single, I Mold construction. Wire gauge is 22. These are very well made lights, we have been using the same factory for 10 years now without issue. The reason for the low pricing is two fold. One our spools were mislabeled so we cannot sell them to retail, but this obviously doesn't matter for home use and our box lights did not arrive until mid November, so we are looking to lighten our load a little bit with those in the off season. All sales will need to be in case packs, which are 4 for the spools and either 18 or 24 for the boxed lights. If you have any questions please fire away. [email protected] Thanks, Dan Spools.pdf Box Lights.pdf
  11. Led Gumdrop Pathway Lights & String Lights

    Thanks for the feedback, I'm confident you'll like them but like anything in made in China, I always hold my breath They just got loaded on the train in Long Beach so they are on their journey eastward right now. As soon as we get them I'll let everyone know. We are just about at 50% pre-sold on the pathways. Thanks again, I hope you all enjoy them for many years!! Dan
  12. Led Gumdrop Pathway Lights & String Lights

    Your not confused. I am selling them to Darryl. He is the only other person that will be retailing these for me. He is correct, they are arriving next week. Enjoy, and let us know what you think. Thanks, Dan
  13. Led Gumdrop Pathway Lights & String Lights

    Hello Everyone! I hope this is an appropriate place for this thread, if not I apologize. About 6 years ago on a business trip to China I came across what I thought were the most beautiful Christmas Lights that I have ever seen. At the time I was a product developer for a US based Christmas company. Although I lobbied hard to acquire the rights for these lights, the tooling and design was owned by a foreign company and they wouldn't sell or license us the rights. Not wanting to step on our factories toes I let go of the idea of selling them. The closest that they ever came to the US is Costco Canada and EBay. I have since moved on from that job and now run my own Christmas business through HolidayProjectors.com. Many years had passed but for some reason this January I decided to see if the factory that made the lights was still in existence, and if they were, did they still had the molds to make them. After some serious effort, the factory and the molds were both successfully located and I will finally have my hands on these lights! Your probably thinking, what makes these lights so special? I guess my best description would be is that they look like actual lighted gumdrops, sugar coating and all. I think half the reason these lights are so beautiful is that there is so much effort that goes into making each one. Each light is colored to the exact matching pantone color of a gumdrop, sprayed with "sugar crystals", clear coated, sprayed with more crystals and then clear coated one last time. When mother nature finally wins out, which she always does, it wont be so bad, each LED is color matched to the gumdrop color so any sugar loss won't be so visible as it will be lit from within by the color matched LED. Our initial run came out so nice earlier this year that we decided to do matching pathway lights as well. They came out even better than I thought they would. Each one is 8" tall, 10 in a set, and covers 30 linear feet. We even put female plugs on one end so you can connect 90 linear feet of pathways with one AC adapter. They look awesome coordinated with the matching string lights. 2013 is going to be our test run for these and if all goes well we will be going full throttle for 2014. If there any Planet Christmas members out there that would be willing to test these I would greatly appreciate it. Since these haven't gone through a full season of use I am hoping to get some serious feedback; good, bad or ugly. I have set up a 20% discount coupon code for all members, just type in "planetchristmas" and it will apply the discount. Please remember, the pictures do not begin to show what they truly look like. The Gumdrops be featured in the FoodNetwork's Holiday magazine issue which is set to hit the stands next week, I'm sure their pictures will be much better than my photoshopped ones! The lights are set to arrive some time next week but we are taking pre-orders now. We only have 500 sets of each type, 25 count, 50 count and 10 count pathway lights, so I'm hoping to be sold out by December 1. Any questions, feel free to message me or send me an email.
