  • 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.

    Sandblasting wireframes

    Need some advise. Building a bunch of new frames this year probably around 15-20. In the past I have used wire wheels for cleaning frames. I want to switch to sand blasting. Lots of stuff on the market. Want something that will do the job but not break the bank. Will need compressor and blaster. Anyone at PlanetChristmas that has a setup that they are happy with and would recommend. Expecting cost around 250-300. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. My previous frames from two years of exposure are showing signs of rust.

    Controllers

    I am looking to purchase some new three/four channel controllers but the one's I purchased seem to have an issue. When it moves from channel to the next the previous channel stays one for a second so both are one at the same time. I am using LED lights on the frames. The one's purchased from lori's lighted dlites work but they are only showing 2 channel controllers. Help! Thanks Paul

    wireframes for sale

    Wireframes for sale! There is a snowman, Santa, sleds, and several deer available. Christmas is gonna be here before you know it, so might as well get ready now! I have decided to take my display in a different direction this year, which makes my wireframe collection available to you. The snowman is 5' tall, and folds up for easy storage. Santa is 5' tall and really a nice touch. There are 3 sleighs (small, medium, large) that are equally impressive. There are 7 deer in various sizes, some with moving heads others not. The snowman, Santa, and the large sleigh are really rare, and I have never seen them before. They are all used, and some may need to be restrung with new mini-lights. I restrung a few, which was an easy task I did watching a football game on a Sunday. I am looking to sell the entire lot for $200. Drop me PM/email if interested. Pickup only, or I can deliver for $50 if you are in a 50 mile radius from 44133. IMG_2742.MOV

    Purchasing your stock for Wireframes

    Over the past year I have been busy! I have built over 14 frames for my display this year. A Nativity! with all the appropriate figures. But mine took on a bit different way in doing it but that is for another time. I have read over the past year of folks purchasing their stock from the big box stores. I did a little investigative work and phone calling after surfing the internet and this is what I found. For the life of me I can not understand why everyone is going to the big box stores to get their materials. I made 2 calls after my internet search and came up with a great company 1 mile from my house. I live in Menomonee Falls, WI so not in town as they say but not the country bumpkin! I called and told them about my hobby. I went in one day and met with the owner and explained my need. He took me into the warehouse and we looked a bunch of steel, he explained the difference cause I am new to this. He recommend what I should work with given the fact of my tools and what I was welding with. I ended up purchasing over 1000 feet of pieces of stock from him. He gave me 20% discount with my promise to return and purchase from them in the future along with permission for them to photograph my display this winter for their website. (Great publicity for free) His pricing was great. For example, 3/8 round stock 10' long from him was $3.85 Menards, for a 6' piece was $9.00 Home Depot $8.75. 3/4 square tubing 10' from him $2.85, Menards, $8.50 Home Depot $7.25 So it pays to shop around and tell folks what you are doing. You will find they are happy to help you and give you a little break. Mike

    Wireframe - bending

    Thanks to this forum I'm about all set to build my first. After practicing some welds and bending I'm wondering if best approach is to take the rod and try to bend it into outline of shape as much as possible. Or is it easier to cut steel rod into smaller sections and weld it? To say another way if making an elf do I take one long piece and try to bend to shape as much as possible and leave welding for smaller sections. I got a ring roller from harbor freight, but if any one has bending tips let me know. Thanks. Ed
