  • 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.

This sequence is from my 2011 Light-o-rama show. 80 channels and approximately 25,000 lights.

The circle/flower pattern is from an original idea of mine where with a simple geometric pattern I could make multiple shapes to animate.

The sequence was written with S2 and involved making around 10 tracks for programming specific shapes.

I am a musical instrument repairman by trade and this tune is from a trombone player I have done repair work for.

When I first heard this song I knew I had to program it. Rock and roll has got nothing on some of these old big band numbers.

Roy gave me permission to use this tune and he also provided me with the original chart from the recording session.

With the aid of this chart, I have done as many other sequencers have done by (at different times during the sequence) assigning certain channels to specific instruments.
