  • 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.

  8. For those of you who submitted into ABC's Christmas Lights Special prime time TV program called Lights Camera Christmas. Unfortunately earlier today the network cancelled the show for this Christmas season. They were suppose to start shooting in early November and air four shows right before Christmas. ---Michael Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

    Csa Approved Controllers?

    Ace_Master, is this for a Canadian municipality? Either way, email me at info@hitechlights.com and give me some more specifics and how large of a project this is and your timeframe. Hopefully you haven't purchased the controllers, because if the controllers don't have the certification mark already then they won't qualify. I'm assuming you are looking at the LOR1602Wg3 controllers for the project right too, at least I hope so. ---Michael

    Trying To Determine How Many Leds I Can Run Off Of A Car Battery

    Everyone is missing the point here, he wants to know how many Christmas lights it would take to "wrap them in" with the goal to "blind someone?"
