  • 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.

power requirements for Hallmark Illuminations Snowflake Snowballs

Recommended Posts

I picked up a set (3) of Hallmark Illuminations Snowflake Snowballs (2005) last Thursday at the Goodwill Outlet Store.  They were in the original box.  It says they require a Hallmark Power Box.  Unlike virtually everyone else who produces Christmas lights, there is no power requirements information on the box or light cord.  There was a set of instructions sent with the lights but it was not in the box.  Of course I know there is nothing magical about the power box except the price.  The lights are LED and RGB.  Hallmark has a replacement available but the reviews by actual purchasers rate it rather poorly.  I've tried it using 5V DC (USB) and the lights do work but I would like to know the exact output for the original power box.  Anyone here have the older Hallmark Powerbox and could measure the output? 

The eBay price on this is nuts.  They start out around $25 and most of the sellers don't include the power source.
