Did you know?
  • 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.

BEST M5 LED's ever!!!!

Recommended Posts

http://holidaylights.com/stdled.html

Guys, we are so lucky to have this store local in Tulsa. They've been in the game for about 20 years, and I bought 4 sets of the GREEN LED/WHITE WIRE Led's 2 weeks ago and was BLOWN AWAY. Talk about hard to find colors, wow. They have purple/white, red/white, green/white, blue/white, sparkle white, etc etc etc....

The quality, the colors, the dimming, NO FLICKER Led's I got were bulk packed in bags, reasonable $15/70, and were good enough to make me get on here are start raving!!!

Someone needs to figure out who is selling these to this guy!!!

Check them out!!!!

They appear to be GKI single mold pro, which were replaced this year with the flexchange series. I have a few of both the single mold and flex change lights left on sale.

The link he gave wasn't really for M5, they were for the 5mm. It's a nice light, we installed a few hundred of them this year of the warm white variety...

I have about 9-10 sets of warm white flexchange style on white left. We don't stock the other colors on white wire because no one ever buys them!

Currently they don't sell M5's. But I will say that the 5mm looks better than the M5 holiday creation strands we also use. But this is just my opinion!

I saw some purple/green-wire 'mini style' LEDs at a local Christmas store...but they

wanted $36.95/set. I'd love to find some purple/magenta/pink and/or green and/or

a true yellow (in the style that looks like just a bare LED) at a reasonable price

LOL for the Magenta & Green the only reason i have the few sets id do is because

i 'made' my own sets by converting mini's (pain in the fingers LOL)

I have a couple cases of purple G12 FWR sets I will make a deal on, I think I have for $12 now.

But, I sold all my purple 5mm sets, nice lights! Tune in next year!

I just noticed on the website it says that if one goes they all remain lit. I read on here and several other places that if one goes they all go. That was regardless if it was retail or commercial led product.

So if I order the holiday creation brand what will I get.

The diogen and HC brands all stay lit with burnt out bulbs. The GKI sets stay lit was long as the bulb is still in the socket.

Don't know what a G12 is LOL but i'm gonna take a guess: a 12mm globe shape?

will have to keep a watch for the 5mm's next year...esp if it beats my "build it yourself

by converting mini's" cost (LOL cost me more to do that than if i was to buy those

Walmart white 5mm's at full price ... but i really wanted a set of magenta/purple

not white)

How do they stay lit when they're wired in series?

Do they have a shunt in them like incandecents?

name other than just 'LED globe' :) LOL
