  • 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.

    Blowmold pricing

    Like others said, look at eBay and see what they are actually selling for not what someone is hoping for because usually there is a big difference.

    Lowes Home Improvement skimpy offering

    I was at Lows the other day and looked at a soldier and it does look like the paint is a lot better than what mine is. I got mine the first year they sold them so maybe they are doing a better job now.

    It looks like at least the snowman is cado judging from the paint, or lack of.

    Lowes Home Improvement skimpy offering

    This looks like it was done with spray paint. Between this piece of junk and the 40 some strands of c9 led lights at 30 bucks a strand that don’t work I’m not real fond of the China crap they over charge for.

    I bought a soldier and the paint was terrible, so bad I didn’t even put it out. Maybe they are better this year.

    Thats a Paw Patrol character, I have a few others of them done but Im about done making new ones because I have to get things ready for this years display. I always seem to do characters from older cartoons that I watched when I was a kid and the kids these days dont really know them so Im trying to do some they are familiar with.

    Doesn’t seem to be as many people decorating as there used to be. Maybe because it’s the money or maybe it’s just to much work and time.
