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.

Amloid candy pails

Recommended Posts

Walmart finally got some of their Halloween items out and they had a few of the Amloid candy pails made from the GF molds.  They had nothing of interest to me at all otherwise.  The orange pail in the first picture came from Walgreens, the other five came from Walmart and were the only selection that they had.  The two in the second picture came from Kmart.  All of the pails were made in Mexico, Amloid has a factory there.

I saw pumpkin pails and also cauldrons at walmart.  They all had Amloid molded into the plastic.  I also saw a cool M&Ms pumpkin that I think could be lit up.  It is intended to hold candy and has a large opening on the back.  I think a plate could be made to cover the hole and hold a light.

What we have found so far in the Amloid candy pails.  The pails in the first picture all came from Walmart, the pails in the second picture have the Kmart and Walgreens pails in the stack on the right with the top two from Kmart and the bottom two from Walgreens.

The pail before they bought GFs kinda looks like the $1 ones from Target.
