  • 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.

    Happy HOLIDAYs

    Why aren't more of you using this song in your displays? Happy HOLIDAYs by Janet Devlin.
  2. These cheap 10w led moving head spots with gobo options are only installed when the weather cooperates. I have a double wide driveway and two separate garage door openings. These help to fill the dead black space of the driveway at night. Homemade mounting bracket with thumb screws. DMX controlled through HC Actidongle and LOR software. CLL sequenced.
  3. Brick sections are animated. Hopefully will get a video up this year.. Hope you like the display! Constructive criticism is always good...Happy Holidays! Facebook for display: https://www.facebook.com/ForestRunLights
  4. I'm sure this has been answered on the forums here but I don't have time to weed through 400 different forum topic. This year I am implementing 6 Cosmic Color Ribbons v1. I uploaded what the network is like. The issue I'm having is that the computer can only find the 2 x 16 Channel Controllers and none of the CCRs. I did notice when I plugged in the ethernet to the last 16 channel box that the status light was blinking and then went out. Then I unplugged the ethernet CCR and the status light went back on. I referenced back to the diagram that came with the CCR and it showed it daisy chained to the 16 channel controller so I am at a loss of figuring out how to fix it. Google doesn't come back with any helpful results. How do I solve this issue and have the computer (LOR Hardware Program) find the 6 CCRs? - Do I have to plug them in 1 at a time and run the hardware program? - Do I have to have the adapter with the 2 ethernet inputs coming from the computer and run one for the 16 channel boxes and the other to the CCRs? Thanks for the help! Hoping to go live on Friday. - Corey

    LOR and Cat5

    Ok,I have a big problem with my controllers--for the second time this season. Twice I've had to replace CAT5 ,with brand new cables--both in the exact same box and position. That suggests to me that the problem is with the RJ45 jack in the Showtime controller(3rd Generation) What says the mob?

    For Whom the Bell Tolls

    My neighbor and I do a large Christmas display each year using Light-o-Rama. We are planning on using some of our RGB's to do a small Halloween display this year. Does anyone out there have the beat track or sequence for Metallica - For Whom the Bell Tolls or Enter Sandman? Thanks in advance!

    CCR Backlight Issue

    Has any user of the CCR tree had any issues with items behind the tree being illuminated. Does this tree need to have a very dark BACKGROUND to be effective. I see some decorators are draping black plastic or plywood behind their tree. Is this necessary? Thanks to all comments in advance!

  17. I have been a AL customer (48 channels/ 15000 lights) for the last three years. I must say I have loved the product and for the first two years have recommended it highly to anyone who would ask. After Christmas this year I have decided to sell my AL system and start over with LOR. If anyone would care to take the time and share with me anything that might sway my decision in any direction I would definately appreciate it. You can do this by PM if you want.... Thanks...Kevin Jones will be selling: 1 - ELD-30 controller 2 - ELC-15 controllers 1 - Monster Brain

    Spent a couple hours this weekend playing with SuperStar's autosequencer. I don't have any RGB lights (yet) and was told SuperStar would autosequence regular lights. The video below shows that you can have a sequence up and running in less than 5 minutes. Video of process of auto-sequencing a song: The finished product:
  20. I just figured out how to do the Shimmer/Fade - like if I wanted to shimmer out on a song and it fade into the distance. Yeah, well found it TOTALLY by accident. Albeit, this is only my second year doing this - and I have a rinky dink little show - I am still friggen ESTATIC!! ALL SHOWS ARE BEING REARANGED TO SHIMMER FADE. It will be like American Idol, all songs end in one big note. Shimmer/twinkle/fade is my big note. If anyone else is a dope and can't figure out how to do it, it's a "custom" thing. Go to the tool bar, change up your custom settings, and voila! This was totally worth taking a vacation day for.

    Lor Show Editor

    Question: I have all my musical sequences ready to go for this years Christmas Show and I have loaded them in the order I want them to play in the show editor. Here is my question. I have 6 songs in my show and I want the show to play every 30 minutes. When the show is not playing i have an animation sequence I want to play, but I do not want the animation sequence to run in the background during the show. How do I schedule the show to play ever 30 minutes, and when the show is not playing have my animation sequence run? Thank you in advance.
