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.

Toy Soldier blow mold placement

Recommended Posts

Curious where all you guys place your toy soldiers in your display.  Every year I seem to find nice spots around the yard for all my other blowmolds but the few toy soldiers I have seem to be harder to place .... maybe because they are small. I've seen people putting them around the perimeter of their yards with stake lights and such.  But where else are good spots ?

Lately, I've been surrounding my "Jurassic Christmas Park" with the soldiers and my candy cane cannon to keep the dinosaurs from attacking "Winter Wonderland'.  I promise...I'm not on drugs.

I place mine near the road and up the drive as of they are guarding the display.

I think Felix gave the answer.  Soldiers like to guard things so they are frequently used on the perimeter.  You could also line your sidewalk, driveway, etc.

Line the perimeter of the yard with light strings from one to another. Pretty standard. Also, you can hang them on the side of the house by the corners. Did this before and looks nice.
