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.

GFC BAT H1074

I was going though some boxes of Halloween items I got last fall at GFC in Norfolk. I found that one of the bats in the box had the formula on the back of it.   244805325_blowmoldBAT.thumb.JPG.20ef5e7972aa9d2324e36521cf2b4935.JPG

Yes, I remember when another member posted about buying samples from them when they were closing and on the back was info about the color mixture.  That's a nice keepsake.

What’s funny is that they had some samples blow mold there. But I was more focused on the items I had on my wish list. I was overload with all the blow molds, Christmas trees, and blow molds I had only seen in old catalogs.  All the samples I saw did not come with light cords and most were odd colors or mixes of colors. If I have thought about it I would have pick some up. Also, I could not believe the great deals. It was the only trip I been on where I had to rent a U-haul trailer to take everything back to Atlanta. I wish I had planned more than a day at the GFC.
