  • 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.

    Jolt Lighting presents Holiday on the Farmstead @ Deanna Rose in Overland Park, KS

    Hey, thanks @TED!! I, personally, love the farm animals! Yes, the display is at Deanna Rose Farmstead in Overland Park, KS so we had to add a little "farm" touch.

    Jolt Lighting Christmas Displays

    Here are some awesomely new and innovative holiday light displays from Jolt Lighting out of Overland Park, KS. Jolt Lighting is owned by Mark Callegari and Aaron O'Dell. Mark and Aaron are not new to the industry, though their newly founded business, Jolt Lighting, is a newly formed company. These two experts have joined hands to advance their knowledge of the Christmas display industry with new ways to fabricate the structure of the displays using ALUPANEL (premium quality composite panel featuring two 0.30mm Aluminum sheets, sandwiching a Polyethylene core) and UV-rated custom printing to provide a better daytime appeal for your Christmas display! Of course, they still have their hands in the wire frame industry display market as well, but these new custom printed daytime appeal displays are really catching a buzz! Check them out! (I have uploaded some images from their Zoo Lights and Halloween Displays as well; just for referencing.) HERE ARE SOME REFERENCE PHOTOS FOR OTHER HOLIDAYS AND EVENTS THAT JOLTS CREATES THESE DISPLAYS FOR! IN THIS LAST PICTURE WE'RE CUTTING OUT THE DESIGN FOR REID PARK ZOO LIGHTS ON OUR IN-HOUSE CNC MACHINE!
