  • 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.

    Putting Santa Blow Mold On Roof

    It's all built out of 2x4's and 2x2's. The base pivots and has notches towards the top for my ridge vent. The base lays flat and the notches clear the ridge vent. I have no roof damage thus far and this is year 2 on this set up. The base is basically made up of three parts. Two base half that go on each side of the roof and then a center that rises about 8-10". The bases scissor together with the riser in the middle with like 5" bolts. You'll see the 2x4's close to the floor well those are where I put black'd out sandbags to keep it from going anywhere. 4bags 70lbs each. Then.... The Santa section is mounted to a 2x4. I just drilled holes in the 2x4 and use threaded rods that go through the skis on the sled. That section then bolts to the top portion of the roof base, the 8-10" riser. since I have a full set of deer then they are in two more sections. The second section is four deer and they again just bolt onto the base. The last one is Rudolph and four deer and that bolts on too and just has one 2x4 that comes out to keep in from bouncing if we get a high wind. The deer belly has been cut out just enough so i can side a 2x2 into it and at the belly point i wrap pipe insulation around the 2x2 so it fits snug. I think put one screw through the top of the deer into the 2x2 and one on the side of the deer. I then use galvanized wire and wrap it around the rear hoof on both deer and then center the wire on the deer base and screw that in with a washer... This way the deer barely move and are firmly attached. If you like this idea and have any questions just PM me.

    Renewing Newbie - This Year I'm Going To Do It!

    My flag pole is not used for a mega tree but I have three sets of icicles coming down and on top I have a nativity star. What I do is get an automotive hose clamp and them make wire loops that I can bend into hooks to hook up the lights too. so if you have like 12 slices you'd space those hooks around the top of the pole and then clamp down. I then usually wrap this all up with electrical tape. May not be the best set up but it has worked for me the past few years.

    Light Replacement

    I need to replace some of my lights that I've had in use for 3-4 years. They were store bought and I am wondering given we are not in full blown Christmas season quite yet where folks are finding the best places to buy lights. I need to replace about 75' of icicle lights and then about 20 strands of multi color that are roughly 25' in length.
