  • 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.

7 FT 2.1M Airblown Inflatable Neon Snowman w/ Black light

Recommended Posts

While looking around for good deals, I found this at CostumePub.com for a very low price (deep discount 49% off) at $16.05. Total $28.74.

Note: I didn't carefully read the details. Like other inflatables I thought it would have a string of 2 or 3 UV/blacklight LED lights inside. This doesn't have any lights inside the inflatable. It come with a UV/blacklight LED projector that you put on the ground.

I can say it doesn't look like the picture shown on the website. Somehow it feel more like Halloween than Christmas.

I forgot that I have another UV flood/spot-light (different wavelength at 385nm) so I decided to test the snowman again. Now it look a lot like the advertised picture shown on the box. I'm guessing whoever took the picture didn't use the included UV spotlight (395nm or higher).
