  • 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.

blow mold repaint rookie

Recommended Posts

I picked up a truck load of blow mold (approx 18) local and many of them could use a new paint job.......not to mention we got snow last and the cabin fever has set in. What is the choice of paint for the pros on here that repaint a good bit? I have a few pics but not of everything and you can see much of the repaint is touch up only. ..................

Have you bought any Krylon spray paint recently, because my Walmarts have quite carrying them and instead replaced them with that universal spray paint that does not have a good selection of color choices?

Ive used Rustolium, acylic paints from crafts stores, asst. air brush paints, but have never tried Krylon yet.

After reading many posts about Krylon , I think this will be the year I give it a try!

 

+1 on heating blow mold up first, it makes the paint stick better, my method is to let sit in black asphalt driveway for 20 minutes.
