  • 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. Greetings all. I've decided this should be brought to the attention of anyone using LED Rope light Snowflakes. I know some members put them on their roofs. I have discovered that 2 out of my 10 flakes have had some serious burning/heat/fire hazard issues. I won't mention suppliers/manufactures because they are generic, and everyone should take the time to double check yours regardless. Especially on the roof of your homes. Look for where the wires connect to the tubes themselves. I am all for Christmas lights everywhere- but not at the expense of any family's life. Here are some images of what I've discovered on mine. This was after I noticed one of the bulbs was giving a slight flicker doing my normal inspections. On another flake, there was condensation/moisture in the tube that was actually bubbling from the heat. You can see different areas that are black in the snowflake itself where the leds were fried. Be safe out there this season. 15 mins worth of inspections might make all the difference. My family comes from a long line of firefighters, and I know how quickly things can go from nothing to total loss from a simple 40 dollar light. Hopefully mine was just a fluke batch. Thanks for your attention.

    Household RGB light strip

    Hi, this is Anna from CA. I put a 10-ft tree in the living room. I would like to decorate it by the colorful lights. Any recommendations? I do not want to use the weary, monotonic bulbs. Thanks!! My tree last year
  9. Hi Group, I'm looking for recommendations on an online vendor of LED lights. A google search turns up many but looking for one that maybe has some ties to this forum. This year, I'm planning to swap out all of my old incandescent lights for LED. So with that in mind, I'll be buying a lot of LED's. I'm looking for bulk buys like lights on spools versus boxes of lights. I need to redo all my C7 lights which consisted of three separate runs of 100' with three separate colors on each run. Also, I'll be redoing all of my 2' and 4' Christmas tree's. I'd really like to be able to buy spools of smaller LED's (500 to 1000') and cut to my own lights and do my own electrical terminations. Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed! Thanks, Lightman

    Wide Angle 5MM LED Lights

    Hi Group, I'm still crunching through numbers to determine the overall cost of converting my incandescent display over to LED this year. I've found some great deals on LED C7's and Rope Light. However, I'm struggling to find a ecomnical solution for smaller mini lights like the Wide Angle 5MM LED's. The best price I've seen is $10 for a package of 50 count. I need roughly 75-100 boxes of the 50 count and that comes out to a pricey figure. Does anyone know of a vendor that sells these by the spool (100', 250', 500')? Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks! Lightman

    Mini-Bubble-Tree

    In a different post I saw someone post the below photo... got me thinking. Has anyone built a recent version of these? I was thinking of trying to do it with a standard string of lights and just put multiple bulbs where the instructions have 1 per can... Anyone done this and have more detailed instructions for a build plan? I just built PVC mini trees but I might aim to replace them with these because I really like the look.

    Net Lights on Roof?

    I tried searching on google and on here as well but couldn't find this anywhere... I had the brilliant idea of putting net lights on my roof, instead of using more and more lines of C9s. My current setup : I have the roof outlined in multi-C9s along the gutter and up the sides to the "peak". (Think a U) Instead of adding more LOR channels I am concentrating on adding more lights this year and the roof was obviously an open canvas. I thought about buying more C9s and putting them on an angle, or just filling in the roof with some type line pattern. But why do that when I can put down net lights? GREAT IDEA, cool effect (at least in my head right now)... Think about the U shape, but now I am filling in the middle. I already purchased the lights (got a decent deal on 2ft X 8ft LED multi color, 150 lights) but now I am thinking about how to secure them next year. Any ideas? I was thinking a wooden frame would work to hold in place, maybe some ropes that are secured, pvc frame (lightweight but enough to hold them in place)... has anyone done this or have any ideas? If you have done it, photos of your setup could be great! I am also thinking its possible to use the C9s already in place to hold them? zip tie them together? creating a GIANT net that I can just roll out? Picture below from a few years ago but the roof is basically unchanged in terms of light layout.

  19. I swapped my Bethlehem star this year for a wire frame version. I also replaced the incandescent lights with LED lights. The cost was nearly identical (purchased from Lowes if it matters). Aside from my RGB LEDs, these are the ONLY LEDs in my display. I noticed when I came home last night, I had a VERY noticeable flicker when the LEDs were dimming on my star. It also seemed to be slightly worse on some sets than others (7 sets used for the star). The differences between sets was minimal however, and a casual observer would probably say the strands flickered at the same time, rate, etc. for each channel they were on. (I have 3 channels for my star, it's basically a modified holdman star). These LEDs worked perfectly since Thanksgiving night. It was only last night they started acting up. We've had periods of pretty heavy rain, but none last night. I connected a three-way pigtail at the base of the LOR controller and connected a set of minis to see if that would have any impact. I *think* it may have smoothed out the flicker a touch, but I'm not really certain. I also noticed that one of my snowflakes running off this same controller stopped working last night too. I will plug in the snowflake to a regular outlet tonight and determine if I've got a sick channel or if the snowflake bit it. I really cannot get to the roof at this time due to all fo the stuff in the yard. I'll just destroy my many cables with the heavy lift. Should I have put the mini lights in series with the LEDs? Any idea why I'd be getting flicker on dimming, but NOT at full brightness?
  20. Hi all, I know this subject is talked about a lot, but I'm trying to convince myself to take the plunge into the world of LEDs. I work at a large lighting company where we have been using LEDs to light products for 10 years. My current needs are 150ft of icicle lights and 5 artificial trees each containing 6 - 100 bulb light strings. To convert my small display to LEDs would cost me about a grand (figuring full-wave, sealed strings from online vendors). When I analyze it, the payback on LEDs just doesn't seem worth it. The lights would have to last more than 5 years to make it cost-effective and based on all the quality issues that I've read about over the years in these forums, it almost seems like incandescent is the path to stick with. Can anybody offer any suggestions? Thanks!

    Spiral Tree Restring

    Hello all, just wondering what the best way to restring leds on a sprial tree is. The previous lights have the clips mounted on them already, and I can get the leds to go on the spiral itself, but what coulod I use to hold them since the sockets ont he incan string had the clips mounted and the other normal replacement clips wont work. Is there any thin gauge wire or ornamant hook wire I could use? Thanks for any ideas.
