  • 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.

    Thinking about it

    So I wanna try doing just 1 rgb prop this year. I think I'm just gonna do a Mega tree Look like pixels are plentiful and available through ray Woo but here's my question What controller should I be looking at? I see light o rama has their pixie 16 for 99 bucks. The falcons are a little more expensive but they can drive more pixels. So... 1. What Brands of controllers should I be looking at? 2. Are there any brands to avoid? 3. I know light O rama has a sale coming up soon and everything goes for fairly cheap does any of the other brands of pixel controllers do a sale as well?
  5. It's funny in Idaho today it was 39゚ today and sunny skies and no snow in the forecast. Took 8 and a 1/2 hours but I got my entire show put away . Kind of makes me sad though my house is very boring to pull up to a night now. I am getting worried about the lack of snow are farmers are gonna be so hosed if we don't get some for irrigation needs

    LED Tree Lights Too Bright

    To cut the flicker use a snubber. I have found that most Sylvania and all GE Christmas lights will dim
