  • 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 6 Christmas and 2 Halloween and I bought LED flickering lights for them this year. I'll have to take pix, but here are the bulbs:

you can find them cheaper from other vendors - I think I paid $14 each for mine

I did a quick search on e=Bay for "LED Flicker Flame Bulb"   and came up with about 200 items.  They are priced anywhere from $9 to $69 per bulb.   They do look really interesting - Here is a video review of them:

Walmart sold some flicker flame bulbs (for Halloween) that were shaped like a regular (incandescent) household light bulb.  I think they were about $2.49.  I don't think the electricity usage would be significant with just 8 bulbs, however I don't know if an incandescent flicker flame bulb would be bright enough to light up a candle flame.  Incandescent flicker flame bulbs look really cool though!
