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.

I have a inflatable that was ripped with the wind.  The cold front came in before expected and by the time I got home it was ripped.  It has a rip on the side about 12 inches or so.  What is the best way to fix it?  I have gorilla tarp repair tape.  Will the work?  Is their something better?  Is their something to add along with the tape?  All help would be appreciated

best thing in the world is Tear Aid, they make it either for fabric or vinyl.   not cheap but worth the price.

I had the big snow globe and it ripped in the front.  I used a needle and fishing line to stitch it together.  Held up well with very minor air leak that didn't affect it at all.

I had a large Snow globe that got a rip a couple of years ago and used the silver tape you wrap around duct work - worked great - BUT I bought a smaller Brand new Snow globe last year (AIRBLOWN) after Christmas sale - brought it out for the first time this year and the darn motor will not blow - Lights and everything else works fine but the motor won't blow air.  Any suggestion on what I might do other than toss it?  I don't want to spend a ton of time on it.  My Snowman did the same thing this year but I gave it a good slap and it started working (hehe) - The snow globe did not work after I splapped it. :unsure:

follow Big Js advice and you will be  on the right track on the snow globe, sometimes the bearing tend to freeze a little WD40 helps to.  I may have a blower if you need one.

I have seen a peice of sand, cause it not to rotate, took it apart and put hi-temp never seize ,if possible, on the motor bearing. Most are sealed so usually you cant. PM anything you can and it will last longer.

Big J - Xenon, Thanks for the suggestions.  Like I said, I pulled it brand new right out of the box, plugged it in (and nothing) - I will say, the lights all work but not the blower.  I am running late getting my display up but I should be completely finished by Friday night - I plan to try and get it working this weekend - I am going to take both of your suggestions and see what happens - if it works I will surely let you know.  Thanks again!!

Does the fan make a slight buzzing noise? You would have to put your hand on the fan to feel it/ hear it.

Xenon,

 

OK, I have tried everything to try and fix this BRAND NEW motor on my inflatable.  I guess I am going to have to get a different motor for it.  Here a picture of the motor and info on the motor.  Are we still looking at $10 plus shipping?  I really don't want to throw this inflatable away. - I just pulled it out of the box!
