  • 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





About my display

Found 8 results

  1. Hello everyone! I’ve written a book! It’s the story of a decorator who moves from Florida to Maine and, unfortunately, buys a house across the street from an unhappy elderly woman. As he begins to put up his display she goes ballistic and starts a campaign to shut it down. How the people in the neighborhood, who prior to this really didn’t know one another, come together over the conflict is the heart of the story. I believe this is the first Christmas book inspired by and written for Christmas decorators and, of course, it’s called “The House on Christmas Street.” If you’d like to know more about it, please click on this link. You may also pre-order your autographed copy there as well. Books will be shipped to you at the end of October. http://judypancoast.com/tune_room_store.htm Thanks for reading this! Judy Pancoast
  2. Hi guys. I’m planning on changing my usual static display into a music synchronised controller based light display ready for Christmas 2018. I’m a complete rookie on this subject and wondered if anyone had some pointers on where to start. Obviously we use a different voltage over here 240v so I don’t know how much kit in the US will work over here. Any feedback would be great. Thanks and Merry Christmas:-)
  3. I got the light show part of my display up and running last night. Simple 16 channel LOR setup for a few sections on the house. I wasn't going to synchronize it to music and just run animation on it. Well I've since changed my mind and need suggestions for an FM transmitter. Looking for one around $100 at most but maybe more if it is a lot better. It would be placed in the garage and the street is only about 50- 75 ft away, 100 if i put it at the back of the garage. I'm a newbie to FM transmitters so any help is appreciated!
  4. So I’ve been going through music and putting together a list of songs I want to tackle for the light show next year. I have 19 songs that I definitely want to try to use. This would make about a 45-46 minute show. I also have a list of 6 songs that I may want to do, but probably will not. Am I over stretching? I hope not!!! Need help and guidance... Probably looking at tackling 48 to 64 channels.
