  • 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.

    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!

    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?

    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!

    CCB Arches

    I'm just sharing this in case you want to read it. I am adding two larger arches to my display this year. After countless evenings viewing the light show last year, It was decided to add CCB arches on the right side of my show. I purchased four ten foot pieces of 1" pvc (THIN WALL 200PSI stuff) at Lowe's. Home Depot did not carry it in my area. The thin wall stuff is more flexible. I glued a one inch UNION on the pipe ends so I can take apart the two ten foot sections for storage. After the glue dried for a day, I attached two sections together for 20 feet. I hammered, three foot rebar, 3/8", into the ground vertically (plum). I placed the pipe on the rebar and bent the arch over to get an idea of the distance the legs should be apart. I settled at eleven feet apart. Which gave me a seven foot high arch. I took one of my CCB LOR strands and used Holiday Coro's Bulb Mounting Strip to mount the bulbs (easy, peasy)! Then I placed the mounted bulbs at the top of the arch at the UNION, between bulb 25 and 26. I zip tied the mounted CCB's and ended up with too much pipe at either end exposed. So I cut one foot off of each end leaving one foot above the ground to the first bulb for snow and so the local dogs do not pee on my expensive bulbs. So 18 feet is the final pipe length giving an arch of six feet high, eleven feet wide. The bulbs will be mounted in a vertical or upright position and removed each year for storage. Don't want to break these babies! Good Luck with your arches. Ask any questions and have a great season!
  10. So after 7 years, I finally had my first animated show (LOR) here for Halloween! (It turned out fantastic, just 16 channels in the yard, but everyone loved it!) So I'm going for 48 channels for Christmas...16 on the house and 32 in the yard. (16 for a megatree, 16 minitrees or 8 minitrees and 8 something else I find) I'm having issues with: Choosing where to place the 16 channels of lights on my house... Actually securing the 16 channels of lights ONTO my house... Choosing where to place the 16 channels of lights on my house... I'm splitting it up into 4 groups of 4. I was planning on splitting up those 2 bedroom windows into 4 of the channels, 1 on each half of the window. I can foresee the roof, just below those 2 bedroom windows, being 4 separate channels. Aside from that, I'm torn on the front window/door/garages could be another 4? and I keep coming up short for the last 4 channels. (maybe the 4 gutters, just below the corresponding 4 roof channels above them?) I am massively grateful for any help/wisdom you can provide here. Actually securing the 16 channels of lights ONTO my house... I have only put mini-lights on my gutters in the past. (and they weren't consistent in direction or too "organized" looking) I don't know how to secure lights to the windows upstairs. (flat, metal surface on the outside) I don't know how to secure lights to the front window or door area. (also not sure on the garages without putting holes in the wood) and I'm also not sure which specific clips to use to secure lights to the roof. (and while I've previously wrapped lights around the pillar on the front porch...outside of that I'm not sure how to secure lights to the bricked areas if your design calls for that) Any insights you can provide would be massively helpful. I'm traveling a bit this month, although I already have the ext. cords cut and 16 channels setup for the mini-trees in the yard. I foresee the biggest time cost here in getting the 16 channels worth of lights onto the house itself. (I have more money than time at this point...and everything I need aside from the spray on blackener to "shorten" the lights where needed.) A huge thank you for any & all insight you can provide to me...and thank you for the inspiration over all of these years in helping bring animated lights to the world!
  11. Hi, I purchased some pre-made sequences from holidaysequences.com I have standard LOR SuperStar (not Xlights or something else) program. I am running just 12 CCRs and a 6 channel star. I have the controller set-up working and running an older show (on an older version of software), so I know it has something to so with my updated software. I have asked Holidaysequences.com and just hadn't heard from them yet, but I was hoping someone might be able to suggest a video on youtube or have some simple directions on what to do after i downloaded the file and hopefully all of the way to creating a show. I searched the LOR website and well it is a bit overwhelming and haven't found specifically what I was looking for and I am hoping someone out there might just have what (hopefully) is just the simple info I need. Thanks in advance! Craig
  12. Hi! I am fairly new to LOR and I bought a 12 CCR display a few years back. I have yet to start designing on my own, but I have purchased a few new sequences this year. My problem is that I have got the sequences in Sequence Editor, and when I go to add the media file from my hard drive that I downloaded it to, the whole program locks up at "analyzing media"! I have been able to merge a few songs and sequences, but not all that I have bought. I can hear my songs when I play them independently, but the program won't progress past the first 1/3 of the little progress bar. Is Windows 10 an issue? Any help would be appreciated ! Craig
  13. I recently purchased a 16 strand sequence for my rgb tree. It came with a .sup and a .lms file. I am trying to add this to an existing sequence in LOR, but cant figure out how. I have the latest up to date pro software license and superstar license with only 2 CCR. The .lms file i have i am not familiar with the layout. It is like sequencing rgb in the sequence editor rather than pixel editor. Each rgb is broken out and not grouped. I tried grouping them and naming them a prop like i have in pixel editor, but no use. I can open it in superstar but cannot export it due to only having 2ccr license. I would rather not purchase. $170 license for this one sequence, but i cant figure out howto get this in my existing sequence. Existing sequence uses 32 channels regular and 32 universes of rgb. Any help appreciated.

    Dead Channel?

    Hello all! At the end of last year, I noticed that one of my channels (channel 2) would not turn on and is always off. I didn't think much of it (silly me!) and set the controller up in the yard again this year. The channel still doesn't work. I can't get it to turn on. I know people have triac issues, and can't get theirs to turn OFF. I reset the board today, and still no luck. Any ideas? I don't have a large load on it-only 1 strand of C6 LED lights. Thanks!

  19. 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:
  22. 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.

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.
