  • 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 think more and more will be doing the Really Big Lights and the RGB color shifting strands.

I appreciate every effort people put in to decorating their house. Some people just don't have the time to dedicate hours upon hours for months on end to put together a show. Other people have accessibility issues that make decorating impossible for them. I was able to get a show going for a couple years now but unfortunately with the addition of another joy to the family and the mahout landscaping that has occurred in our front yard that now completely changes our display setup, this year I may fall somewhere in the middle of that. I'll probably get lights up but won't be able to get a show going this year. For those with even less time or inability to use a ladder or reach window frames then there are the projectors. It is quick, it is decoration, and it displays good holiday spirit. I just wish that they came in more colors and patterns so there was more originality to it.

I see projectors are super cheep now too so I bet we'll see a bunch of those in people's Windows soon also.

Laser light projectors are still the easiest way to decorate outdoors for the holidays. We have seen a lot of people shifting to the white laser light this year to add the elegant look, rather than the colorful RBG laser light projectors. You can always check out the newest projectors at www.lasersandlights.com

I personally have a few of these "lazy" lights. I however only have mine on after 10PM when all the other lights go dark. Keeps the house lite but at a huge cost savings. I have about 4 in total now.

I see a lot of people using the color shifting lights now. They were getting more traction last year. I don't expect to see a boom in them unless the price drops dramatically. Most people don't want to spend a lot of money or time on lights which I'm guessing is why the lasers took off so quick, they are Fast and cheep, that fits the bill for them. The lasers are also easy for elderly and mobility restricted people so they opened up that part of the market also which was previously untapped.
