  • 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.

    Painting a blow mold without a spray can

    If you are using a stencil try spray adhesive called re-mount 3m makes it. It will seal down to surface and not let overspray in then you can peel it off and stick it to another one over and over

    Blow Mold museum

    Not posting a loss just finding a way to preserve history if you're not rich. Most auto museums operate this way. and none of this is what Christmas is about it's just some info about starting a museum. sorry

    Blow Mold museum

    A friend of mine has a car museum and is set up as a 501c3 charitable organization, he has sold his cars to his "foundation" and any restoration costs, storage, car show entry fees, and travel expenses are a write off.

    After Christmas Sale

    I have the Martha Stewart snowflake icicle lights. I tested and hung all of them, then when I saw them in the dark some sets look white some kind of tan- yellow. They say warm white on box. About 1 in 3 was wrong color
