  • 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 window display...using LOR in the off season!

Recommended Posts

I own a flower shop and my Christmas displays are always a big hit with the locals. My display is entirely indoors, as I'm on a very busy highway and if it ain't nailed down outside, it wouldn't last an hour. However, I've been wanting to use my LOR hardware for something other than the Yule season...here's what I came up with...nothing related to any particular season...just something to catch the eye of drivers going by...

That was great!! I don't think you repeated an effect...ever! Pretty impressive.

However, I always get the feeling that a giant plant is going to come out and eat anything with blood in it no matter what flower shop I go to. You should sequence Suddenly Seymour...hahaha
