Christmas Facts 
Some Holiday Trivia 

Norwegian scientists have hypothesized that Rudolph's red nose is probably
the result of a parasitic infection of his respiratory system.
--------------------------------
The Germans made the first artificial Christmas trees out of dyed goose feathers.
--------------------------------
Each year more than 3 billion Christmas cards are sent in the U.S. alone.
--------------------------------
All the gifts in the Twelve Days of Christmas would equal 364 gifts.
--------------------------------
The "true love" mentioned in the song "Twelve Days of Christmas" does not
refer to a romantic couple, but the Catholic Church's code for God. The person
who receives the gifts represents someone who has accepted that code.
For example, the "partridge in a pear tree" represents Christ.
The "two turtledoves" represent the Old and New Testaments.
--------------------------------
Most of Santa's reindeer have male-sounding names, such as Blitzen, Comet,
and Cupid. However, male reindeer shed their antlers around Christmas, so the reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh are likely not male, but female or castrated.
--------------------------------
In A.D. 350, Pope Julius I, bishop of Rome, proclaimed December 25 the
official celebration date for the birthday of Christ.
--------------------------------
According to the Guinness world records, the tallest Christmas tree ever cut
was a 221-foot Douglas fir that was displayed in 1950 at the
Northgate Shopping Center in Seattle, Washington.
--------------------------------
The traditional three colors of Christmas are green, red, and gold. Green has
long been a symbol of life and rebirth; red symbolizes the blood
of Christ, and gold represents light as well as wealth and royalty.
--------------------------------
The Christmas tree made its way to America in the 1830s but wasn't popular
until 1846, after Germany's Prince Albert brought it to England when he married
Queen Victoria. The two were sketched in front of a Christmas tree and the
tradition instantly became popular. Royal fever was real even back then.
--------------------------------
Santa Claus is based on a real person, St. Nikolas of Myra (also known as
Nikolaos the Wonderworker, Bishop Saint Nicholas of Smyrna, and Nikolaos of Bari), who lived during the fourth century. Born in Patara (in modern-day Turkey), he is
the world's most popular non-Biblical saint, and artists have portrayed him more often than any other saint except Mary. He is the patron saint of banking, pawnbroking, pirating, butchery, sailing, thievery, orphans, royalty, and New York City.
--------------------------------
Jingle Bells" was originally supposed to be a Thanksgiving song.
--------------------------------
. The earliest known Christmas tree decorations were apples. At Christmastime, medieval actors would use apples to decorate paradise trees (usually fir trees)
during "Paradise Plays," which were plays depicting Adam and Eve's creation and fall.
--------------------------------
Commissioned by Sir Henry Cole (1808-1883), British illustrator
John Callcott Horsley (1817-1903) invented the first Christmas card in 1843.

Common Servo Motor Types
Used in Industry Today 
Types of Servo Motors
Servo motors are classified into different types based on their application, such as AC servo motor, DC servo motor, brush-less DC servo motor, positional rotation, continuous rotation and linear servo motor etc. Typical servo motors comprise of three wires namely, power control and ground. The shape and size of these motors depend on their applications. RC servo motor is the most common type of servo motor used in hobby applications, robotics due to their simplicity, affordability and reliability of control by microprocessors.

DC Servo Motor
The motor which is used as a DC servo motor generally have a separate DC source in the field of winding & armature winding. The control can be archived either by controlling the armature current or field current. Field control includes some particular advantages over armature control. In the same way armature control includes some advantages over field control. Based on the applications the control should be applied to the DC servo motor. DC servo motor provides very accurate and also fast respond to start or stop command signals due to the low armature inductive reactance. DC servo motors are used in similar equipments and computerized numerically controlled machines.
 
Positional Rotation Servo Motor
Positional rotation servo motor is a most common type of servo motor. The shaft's o/p rotates in about 180o. It includes physical stops located in the gear mechanism to stop turning outside these limits to guard the rotation sensor. These common servos involve in radio controlled water, radio controlled cars, aircraft, robots, toys and many other applications.

Continuous Rotation Servo Motor
Continuous rotation servo motor is quite related to the common positional rotation servo motor, but it can go in any direction indefinitely. The control signal, rather than set the static position of the servo, is understood as the speed and direction of rotation. The range of potential commands sources the servo to rotate clockwise or anticlockwise as preferred, at changing speed, depending on the command signal. This type of motor is used in a radar dish if you are riding one on a robot or you can use one as a drive motor on a mobile robot.

Linear Servo Motor
Linear servo motor is also similar the positional rotation servo motor is discussed above, but with an extra gears to alter the o/p from circular to back-and-forth. These servo motors are not simple to find, but sometimes you can find them at hobby stores where they are used as actuators in higher model airplanes.
