  • 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.

    RGB Controller

    Hey Everyone, I'm getting started with some sequencing and mapping and all things Christmas Lights, and found some 27 Channel RGB Controllers in my garage. Some of them are new in box. Anyone interested in making an offer ? They go for 28 bucks on one of the Holiday Sites. I'll ship to California for free, anywhere else, you can pay for what ever shipping speed you want. No crazy low ball numbers like 5 dollars please.

    Starting New

    Hello all! I am starting my display over in a new location. At my previous house I had 128 LOR channels with close to 50k lights. When I sold the house, the new homeowner wanted my complete system so I sold it to him - EVERYTHING! So now I am in a new home and in a new state and looking to start over. i am looking to dive into the world of smart pixels and DMX. I have 1 16ch LOR controller. So now you know my life story here is my question: What is the best way to go with smart pixels? Where do you recommend purchasing them from? What controller will I need? How will I power them and how much power will I need to have? How do you mount these? Do I stay with LOR software? As you see I have a lot of questions and I know I still have many more to ask. So please help with any and all information that you may have. It is greatly appreciated. I have also included a picture of the front of my current house. Some old nasty videos can be found here - "https://vimeo.com/3099146" Thanks in advance for any and all help. I received a lot of help from here in the past and I know I will get the same.
  3. Hi guys. I’m planning on changing my usual static display into a music synchronised controller based light display ready for Christmas 2018. I’m a complete rookie on this subject and wondered if anyone had some pointers on where to start. Obviously we use a different voltage over here 240v so I don’t know how much kit in the US will work over here. Any feedback would be great. Thanks and Merry Christmas:-)
