  • 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.
  • 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.

    The large Aluminum mold are used in the mold machine like #24 or #28 (Milacron) in the above flyer. Hears a link to a YouTube using a large blow mold machine that is very similar.

    I am almost 65 years old, and not a big Walmart fan, but it is about the only store around here. Never seen a Walmart do this. They had about 100 "fresh" cut Christmas trees. Instead of marking them down, they were giving them away. Hats Off to the East Rome Ga Walmart

    I hear these complaints about Walmart a lot. Oddly, I’ve never heard anyone actually post the number (undoubtedly in the thousands) of people employed by Walmart. Walmart is often accused of “keeping people poor”, but employment at Walmart is not compelled by the government. The people working there applied for jobs, interviewed for the jobs (where they had opportunity to ask about wages, benefits, etc.), and they accepted the jobs. Corporations that provide jobs don’t keep people in poverty. People keep themselves in poverty—if they chose to stay there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
