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'm the one that told big J 

A friend of mine works for Home Depot and they will match competitor prices and promotions even the 11% mail in rebate when they have it but you have to ask for the mail in rebate.

I may be making a trip to home Depot tomorrow. I have lived in my house for 3 years and it seems like we have been replacing lights weekly. I finally bought some leds and not a problem since. I want to replace the rest to help out on the electricity bill.

I hate menards because of the owers political views, however, I love it when I can make him give me money back on the 11% rebate.  All in all in the past year using sales, rebates and the 11% rebate, I have spend about $600 there, but I have now gotten $300 back from them so I guess I have to bite the bullet!
