  • 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.

  8. Did Everybody Quit PC?

    probably the most frustrating part is that when I google web for things and it links back to the forum, they are all disabled. this is what new potential members would also see and I wonder if it may drive folks away. and Chuck thank you for all your hard work here, not meaning to criticize just a observation

  13. GFP Closing

    nice display where in metro Atlanta are you. I am up near rome
  14. best bet is to find a new inflatable with 12 volt adapter and blower and swap the blower out. Walmart sold their Christmas ones for $15. New blowers and adapter usually list for around $30. yard sales and thrift shops sometimes have them real cheap. I have tons of larger blowers for sale SJD B2 etc if anyone needs them
