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.

Oh man, I want that scarecrow!!!!!!!!!!!   

If you get a chance could you tell me if it lights up.  I always wondered if light would shine through this guy.  The Halloween version of this scarecrow is great, but you only see his head when it's lighted.

Thanks!

This guy is the L&G version. So unfortunately you does not light-up and I put him outside and 1 storm he got cracked. He is now permanently inside with all the "rarer molds" I have!

I should have phrased it better and asked if you ever tried to light it.  I know that this scarecrow doesn't actually come with a light, but I wondered if you take a bulb and put it in through the bottom opening if light will get through.  Of course I am assuming there is an opening at the bottom where the stake goes in.  I always liked this version better and pictured myself lighting it by making my own hole for a light.  This is why I asked.  I don't know anyone with this scarecrow, so I hope you don't mind me asking. 

I hope yours wasn't damaged too badly!  Ouch!
