  • 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.

    When Are After Christmas Sales

    Picked up 125 boxes of minis from Walmart today and a few boxes of the Gemmy icicle lights....Stopped by Lowes they had a bunch of green incans out at half price...Picked up an airblown at Home Depot also... Does anyone know when Lowes and Walmart usually go 75% off...

    Lor Santa

    Hey everyone...need some help.... Got this in the nativity part of the display and since the first night we've opened I noticed that the audio stops and restarts the entire animation and show in random parts...it has yet to finish the complete sequence....this is strange because I tested it multiple times before it we opened and it worked perfectly....
  4. If it was the last one it may have been a store display and the bulbs might have burned out....I would try replacing a bulb or two to see if the light strand even has power....If not some of the inflatables have a separate cord to run the lights inside the airblown ...that cords is connected through a plug to the actual motor...If this airblown is set up that way you could try splicing the old plug and replace i with a new one....
