  • 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.

  4. Hi Xenon, Question for you. I have approximately 40 new inflatables, probably 30 Christmas, 10 Halloween that I'm looking to sell together. These are all open box returns that ave been tested. Do you have any interest or do you know of anyone that may be interested? My email is [email protected] I can send you the list if you like. We are stepping away from the inflatable business for a while to concentrate on other categories. It would be one hecuva deal Thanks, Dan

  7. Hi, Yes sale is still on but we are showing at a large show in Las Vegas this week so if all goes well these will be gone by next week. If anyone wants to place an order I would suggest moving on these soon. Thanks, Dan
  8. 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.
  9. 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
