  • 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.

    New custom inflatable.

    Today I decided to make another custom inflatable. I used an old Santa, that no longer worked. I put a new more powerful motor on it and added the reindeer, elf and bear, which were all extra pieces I had. What do you think of it??
  2. I have sets of solid blue, green, red, and clear mini lights for sale. They are used, and all bundled up in little balls. They are sets of 100 lights, used for 1-2 seasons. I have approximately 120 sets of clear, 75 blue, 60 red, 60 green. (These numbers aren’t EXACT, I’ll make sure I have enough to fill an order before I take it). They are in nice shape, colors are still vibrant. They might be a little bit dirty, but were used on the trunks of trees so they stayed fairly clean. The lights are rather close together, (see pic), and the sets themselves are around 20-22 feet in length. I can’t gaurentee every single light is working, but I’ll make sure the set itself works before shipping. Looking to get $1 a set, plus shipping. I also have 25 additional sets of red that are brand new, looking for $1.50 a set on those. If you let me know how many sets you want and you zip code, I can give a shipping quote. Thanks!

    Yes. I had an old inflatable, that had gone bad. The bulk of it was ruined, but there was an elf, a bear, and two reindeer on it that were still good. So I cut the seams and removed them. Then, I added them onto this Santa Airblown. It's time consuming but worth it.

    Thank you!! I just had some laying around. Although you can buy them at yardinflatables.com. They aren't constantly in stock, so if they aren't add yourself to the waiting list and they'll let you know when they do come in stock.
