  • 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.
  • 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.

    Evolving RGB
  1. XLights or LOR

    While I started late I was able to pull off a 32 Channel LOR Static Light, Light Show within 2 weeks of receiving my 2 16 channel controllers ( . Now i am planning for Halloween and an going to RGB smart pixel base. Been reading, looking at everyone's videos, 12v vs 5 v, Power injection etc. I have LOR Sequence editor S$ with Superstar Upgrade. And while I have yet to program or buy RGB controllers or lights, before I do I wanted get different points of views of pros and cons of LOR vs XLights . Which is easier to configure and set up?, Which is the most user friendly sequencer S5 or Nutcracker?, Which sequencer has more effects? Can you use XLights sequencer with LOR Hardware? I am by no means an electrical or computer expert but managed to pull together this show and set up within 2 weeks. I look forward to hearing from this forum. Thanks Leo
