  • 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.

    I was born in Western, PA and moved to Gergia in 1999. I am married to a wonderful woman named Jenny and we have three kids, Joe, Abbie, and Mary Beth.
    I got into decorating as a child thanks to my grandmother and mother. We always had lights, nothing over the top though. I always wanted a great display and now my house is the one everybody comes to see and I love it.

  • About my display
    In 08 our plan is around 70,000 lights and so far 112 channels of LOR. We have 2 mega trees, 32 mini trees, LEDs, mini lights, you name it. We also have the peanuts gang and a singing Elton John and a nativity that has been in my family for 30 years. I hope to add more as the year goes on.

  2. We were on the 2006 version not sure about 07. 2006 was our first year. Pretty lame by today's standard and display. Lol. Still at it though. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
  3. too many lights?

    If you are running all LEDs I would never worry about the load on a channel. I've been running LOR for 12 years and have had very little issues. Ill assume you habe heatsinks if you bought a ready to go. That means each channel can handle up to 8amps. Overall the controller will handle 30amps, 15 each side as some have said. I've run old C9's, minis, and LEDs. Tend of thousands of lights too. Fried a triac here and there but not with LEDs. Sequences, what are you looking for? Email me at felixfamilylight@bellsouth.net and I'll see what I can do. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk

  9. Memories of Planet Christmas long gone!!

    Well Scott you have just brought back many things and memories I have long forgotten from back in the day. Getting help from guys like Marty and Ron and everyone else. I remember when you built your train. Man I was envious but still do not have one. Some of the names you have mentioned I haven't heard in years. I'm glad you are back at it and remember your struggles as well. I prayed for you like I'm sure many I our community that were I the know did. Thank you for the reminder and the motivation for this year. Can't wait to see what your display looks like this year. Sent from my SM-G930P using Tapatalk
