  • 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.

    Reliable C7 or C9 LED Lights

    I get my C7 Bulbs and C9 bulbs from Christmaslightsetc. If your in Atlanta there warehouse and showroom is in north Atlanta. It’s cool place to check out. Also I have 60+ sets of LED C9 sets from sams club for last 8 years with LOR light controller. What I have done for years is buy one set in Nov.1and see if it holds up using LOR ( run program for 12 hours a day until Nov.20( in my basement). If they work well I go to store when they are marked down and buy a bunch. Normal it they fail it will happen with in 15days running them 12 hours a day.

    Finds at ACE Hardware

    I have order a few blow molds from ACE this year. None of the ACEs around Atlanta have had any on display. They all say it on-line only.

    Goofy needs his ear

    I am not sure wear you can get ears? Attached is a picture showing the ear. The way ears attaches looks like the same type used for cow ears and reindeer antlers. The good thing is that the ear is all black so you could use many different things to make ears. Good luck!

    Cado Union North Pole sign

    Its a lantern style (acorn dome). They did put a deflector in it that cut down the brightness. But it’s still very bright in my book.

    Walmart has a reindeer crossing blow mold

    I found my receipt for the lantern. The number on it did not work for me either. It could be a in store only? The bell and lantern were at a very large Walmart. Hope you have luck finding them.

    The bell and snowman head are the same way. I really like the lantern and they are all under$10 bucks! I hope I can find more lanterns! I have look for all three on-line but have not been able to find them. I will look tonight for the receipt for lantern.

    A few Halloween blow molds

    If it makes you feel better I thought about flying to Norfolk VA and getting a rental truck. The factory was only two miles from the Norfolk airport. My Hotel rental and high gas prices it would have been cheaper to fly to Norfolk and drive back:)

    A few Halloween blow molds

    Hi Mel Thank you for the information I will check it out. I did get some extra bags at GF factory last October. They had some large bins of free plastic bags. I got some very large bags for life size camels and a few extra. I should have gotten more. I was so overwhelmed my volume/scope/deals that I missed out on a lot. I only wish I had planned that trip a lot better. It was the only trip I have ever had were I was going for a few items on my wish list and came back home towing a large enclosed U-Haul .:) It was a 11-12 hour drive each way.

    A few Halloween blow molds

    Hi, Mel Thanks for information what types of bags do you use for your blow mold? Do you get them on-line or at a local store in your area? I think it is a good idea to have mold in bags. Down here in the south it seems to rain for most of November and December so if there is any dust it washes off. But I do clean every thing before I put it up for the year. But I think I will start trying to bag all of my molds. Most of the ones I don't have in bags never had a bag but I keep them in the original box. It is always interesting to see a large display. I do understand having to put up and take down a large display. At my new house my yard is small so I can only put out a small selection of blow molds. Also since I live in a HOA area and inside city I have a lot of rules to follow. So I have to make it a size that can go up in a few days and take down is a few days. Where I live I am not allowed to put up any Christmas on the outside of my house until Nov.22 and Every thing must be put up by Jan.2. I plan on moving again (I hope in the next few years) and getting out of the city and HOA!!!!:). I would rather have a longer drive to work and have freedom to set up my display when and how I like to. I use to live out on a farm in north Georgia and had 1/2 mile of road frontage so I was used to having a large spread. But, I was getting burned out on it since it toke from Nov.1 -Nov.25 to get every thing out and due to snow/work toke from Jan.1-March 15 to put up and box up every thing and put it back in the barn.
