  • 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.

  1. Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide. I have my display all setup and ready to go, I tested all of the cat5e cables, and all of the controllers are displaying solid lights as expected when daisy chained. However, when I start my show, only the lights connected to controller one are responding. I have 6 controllers total. Any idea how to fix this? I am sure it is probably a simple fix, but I am at a loss and having a difficult time finding anything related to this problem online. Thanks again!
  2. Hey guys and gals i was wondering if any of you nice people have any sequences that you wouldn't mind sharing I have very few i bought 2 from light o Rama and mr. Matt was nice enough to give me several more i have one controller 16pc and about 4000 lights this is my first year .Thanks

    Anyone work with these flood lights?

    Ok, I am looking at purchasing 4 of these units to light up the front of my house. Floodoor RGB LED Flood Light,30W US 3 Prong Plug,Remote Control,16 Colors 4 Models Switchable,Memory Function,Outdoor Advertising Housing Decoration Landscape Garden by Floodoor . I want to light up the front of my house with these (it is a wonderful rough stone face) and I am hoping that someone out here has these and can answer the following questions. 1. I want to program them not using light-o-rama, just the internal to do a slow fade from red to green together to light up the front of the house. 2. Will the four work together? Supposedly after you program them each time the power is turned back on they will remember the last setting and go. 3. I want them to work together so the whole house is red then green. NOT alternating or not being synced. If these will not work, can you recommend something outside of purchasing 8 units 4 for each color and put on a remote fader. Don't want to spend a lot of cash to make this happen. I already have spent more than my limit for 2017. This is the final thing for this year. Mike's Creations. Ps last year I used 6 small spots alternating green/red looked nice but want the whole house to light up one color at a time and dim slowly.
  4. Hello everyone. I was wondering if any of you might be able to help me in my endeavor to expand my smaller sized nativity display. I already know where I can get some correctly sized angels, extra Shepherds and Josephs to stand in for shepherds, but what I would really like is to add a camel for my three Magi. But I am almost 100% certain that no company has ever produced a blow mold camel to go with this size nativity. Most of the figures are around 18" tall ( and a couple around 23") so just adding in the camel for the medium sized nativity you see around most places would look kinda off. As you can see by someone else display in one of the attached images. So would any of you know of a camel from any source that I might be able to use? Maybe not even a blow mold, but perhaps something I could make match the other figures through some creativity. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

    PAY FOR HELP!!!!!

    WILLING TO PAY FOR HELP I am looking to get into RGB Pixels this year after using LOR last season. My plan is to outline my house, windows, mega tree, and 3-4 arches. I want to use the ribbon lights for the outline. I know the sequencing is going to be very time consuming so learning the startup and basics of Xlights is where I need help so I can focus most of my time on sequencing. I know there is a lot of videos on youtube, which I found a lot are tutorials from older software versions which leaves me a bit lost at times. Digging through the forum can be a bit time consuming as well and info is all over the place. I am willing to pay an experienced person to help me get going on Xlights. I would be willing to pay an hourly rate or a flat rate. Name your price if you are willing to help for some cash.
  10. I am hoping somebody can help me! I bought one of these yesterday, secondhand. It functioned perfectly last night and even this morning. Then it just stopped working! It's stuck on one color and makes a sound like a stuck gear when I try to shift colors or patterns, and will just shut off if I keep clicking the remote to change it. It switched once, but then went back to solid red and didn't change again. I know these things aren't the highest quality but it worked perfectly yesterday! Any guidance?

    I Think I Am Addicted And Need An Answer Or Two Help

    OK So it is now Dec 26th 2010, And i already drawn up channeled out and put on Large Cardboard my intended Display for 2012 Christmas, Today I did the SAme for what i am planning to do for July 4th 2012 as well as my Halloween Display for 2012. And now i am thinking about other Holidays my question is Does anyone know any good Site's Like Planet Christmas for July 4th and Halloween?? Does anyone know a Good Site to get some decent Sequenc's something to start off with that no one is going to get offended if i use for learning and using for July 4th and Halloween? My drawings i first thought would come to like 64 channels which i am expecting to buy in febuary, well after laying everything out on paper and selecting colors and such my Christmas first look without limiting came too 256 Channel's of LOR without even thinkiing about ti as i drew it i drew then added it all up and i was surprised., but my wife talked me down to reorganize and ill be able to hold off for a while before going to the 256 channel idea's i came up and got it down to just 64 channel's unless here is another question Does anyone know a Controller that is compatible with LOR's Software and LOR and can control more channel's, My Display is going to be Fairy LED's, with RGB Flood Lights (Which i have already but cant seem to figure out how or what i will need to get LOR to control them. ) but i may also be looking into stock piling alot of RGB LED Strips, but not sure if they are LOr friendly or not the few i already have has 12 channel's and they are small but i can link up like 30 of so of these peel and stick RGB LED's and my thoughts are that one of these strips would take 12 LOR channel's but i am proberly wrong. LED Curtains i am having one mail to me supposedly it has RGB and is 4foot by 4foot he tells me ALOT of little Lights but all he has is the light netting no controller but it does have 110 plug and a small box he presses and it does 12 functions but he says he was told it should be able to do like an LED TV he just doesnt know how Do any of you? I know i am proberly thinking the Channel's wrongly or something but ill try and post Pictures and how i think the channel's are going to work a bit later tommorow cantr seem to find ym fcamera atm. maybe someone can help on my idea's

    Need Sequences With Arch Segments

    I spent a good bit of my summer building my driveway arch and now have no idea how to sequence to make it work. Can anyone send a me an arch sequence that I could incorporate into my set up? I have a simple 8-channel arch and have no idea how to make it work. I have almost no experience with sequences so I would appreciate it if anything sent is idiot proof. (DUH) I know that's a little silly to build something you're not ready for but it seemed like a good idea in July
