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.

Thank you, ALL!

Got to bring my father home yesterday after 98 days in the hospital since February 7 of this year. The sad thing is that we came home under hospice care. With my fathers age and health problems there is nothing more than can do for him. He made the decision to do this because he is tired of fighting. 

With this decision means no more dialysis so it will not take long foe the enevitable to happen. Thank you all for all of the thoughts and prayers you have lifted up for my father. Please just keep my family in your prayers, especially my mom. They were married 55 years back on March 17. There is a lot of love there and she will be lost without him.

Thanks Planet Christmas Family,

Jerry

Just an update on my father:

He passed away on Sunday June 3, 2018 at 4:25 pm surrounded by our family and friends here at home. He lived like 4 1/2 days from coming home. No regrets in anything because he was happy to come home. 

Just continue to keep us in your prayers if you will.

Thanks again for the thoughts and prayers.

Jerry
