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.

Here's a picture of my neighbor's from last year, it's still the same thing this year, so there's no difference. But anyway, they're all made by Empire. Enjoy! :)

I changed the choir three times. First they were to be under the front window with the deer lure behind them. I moved the lure to the north woods area and stood it up behind Mr and Ms Claus. The choir was moved back and was under the window with the Nativity displayed inside. Then I made the stable and moved the Nativity outside and the choir was pushed to the side. Kinda behind the north woods display.

Of all my molds I will still be putting these out when I am 100 hobbling along with my cane!!

The snow might get in the way though!!!

Here is what I ended up with for the display this year.

I hope to have more and a better setup for next year.

Things got too far behind this year so everything was a rush to get setup.

My 2009 Choir, not much different from prior years.. It will be drastically changed in 2010, at least that's the plan.

Hard to see, but the Choir grew from two last year to eight this year, with two

Beco Angeles, hiding under the overhang, out of view. This year we tried placing them up in the air,(On PCV Pipes) but during the month they all jumped off, and by the end December all back placed on the ground. We will work on a new display method for next year.

Carrie wins for biggest choir but I like Bill's version of using different things in a choir. Could make for interesting LOR display.

Thank you for the compliment Brad.

I can only wish that I can acquire as many as Carrie has in her display. :D

I know it ate up a bunch of channels for mine this year and I only got 2 songs semi sequenced to use them. Too many things trying to do and not enough time to make it all work the way that I wanted it too.

The first two videos on my site used the choir for animation even though it was just a hit and miss thing for this year. I actually got all the molds due to the song Closing of the Year just so I could do it.

I can see that I will redo things and make them much more involved with the music for next year though. They do have a lot of potential for entertaining with the music.

Carrie I love your chior setup. I cannot imagine what you could do to make it any better. What is your plan?

Bobby

Bobby, thank you, coming from you that means a lot to me.

I've been doing my choir pretty much the same way for a long time. I am hoping to acquire about 20 more choir peeps this year..doesn't matter what kind, big or small, makes no difference to the plan.

As I love the TPI trumpet angels and they are an integral part of the "choir" because of LOR sequencing, I plan to split the choir into two sections. On either side, I am going to create (I have to built some new frame works) a new arrangment with my trumpet angels..something, that if it works, will be unique and to my knowledge never done before.

If it works out the way I see it in my head, it should be really beautiful.

I struggle to keep my choir people standing straight with thier heads facing forward, next year I will try a new method of displaying......I am enjoying the elevated look.
