2019 – JEEP RENEGADE WILLYS     

The São Paulo Motor Show is the venue for the presentation of the limited series Jeep Renegade Willys, which honors the brand that created the first vehicles of the Jeep and, more specifically, the origin of the pioneering model of 1941, made to order for the army of the States United. It will be only 250 units, based on the Trailhawk version, plus various style differentials. Like the ‘Willys’ inscriptions on the front fenders and ‘4-Wheel Drive’ on the rear cover, as was common in the ‘ancestors’ of the Jeep Renegade. And there are still the stars in the C-columns, also embroidered on the back seats of the front seats. On the handle in front of the front passenger, on the dashboard, a nameplate will indicate the numbering within the limited series. In relation to the already extensive list of standard items of the Jeep Renegade Trailhawk, the Willys edition will have the addition of the My Sky sunroof. With two removable parts, the first one also has electric opening, this ceiling is a reminder of the freedom outdoors that the brand proposes. The bodywork of the Jeep Renegade Willys will always be Green Recon, combined with several external parts with dark finish, such as wheels, emblems, grille frames and bumper and rearview mirror covers. Each customer will also get a kit consisting of unique items: Jeep Gear jacket, thermos bottle, US Army style nameplate and Jeep military jumbo can case. The launch will be in the next semester.

Historical Combatant

As Renegade Willys pays tribute to the Jeep’s military origins, there is nothing better than to show one of the most representative brave ‘soldiers’. That’s why the brand’s booth proudly demands a 1953 Jeep Willys M-38A1, the third generation of military models, started with MB and followed by the M-38. This vehicle is of enormous importance to the Jeep, as it anticipated the evolution of the civilian version, the CJ-5, which would be released in 1955 in the USA, as the hood with the rounded edges and the front wings more involving. The Jeep CJ-5 would become one of the brand’s most popular, with more than 600,000 units produced over four decades, including in Brazil – between 1957 and 1982. In addition, the M38A1 was also famous for being used in the Korean War. One of his many drivers over many years of service around the world, was Elvis Presley, who was in the US Army between 1958 and 1960 in Germany, even though he was already a music star.

2018 – JEEP WRANGLER 6X6 BY BRUISER CONVERSIONS

Six-wheel drive (6×6) vehicles are becoming more fashionable, with buyers being able to choose from models such as the Mercedes-AMG G 63 6×6 or the Hennessey VelociRaptor. But if none of these please the customer there is a new element in the game. It is a Jeep Wrangler modified by the Bruiser Conversions and produces impressive 480 horsepower. This model had already been presented at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, but only now the details have emerged. The first highlight is the change in the bodywork and the chassis to accommodate another axle and a rear bucket with an oak wood background. The suspension has been completely redesigned and the ground height increased. It has special wheels mounted on Mickey Thompson tires, a winch at the front, a kit of extra lights on the roof, direction-indicator lamps on the side mirrors and bumpers with steel protections. The result is a true all-terrain racecar with a very aggressive look, much due to the frosted green paint that contrasts with several black details. But if the exterior impresses, the engine that hides under the hood is not behind. The factory engine of this Jeep Wrangler was replaced by a huge V8 block of General Motors origin that develops 480 hp. Bruiser Conversions has not revealed any more technical details of this proposal, but one thing is certain: few obstacles will put a brake on this Wrangler 6×6.

How to decorate the Christmas tree? 4 tips

The Christmas season is coming soon and you can already glimpse the first signs that announce the arrival of this magical atmosphere of celebration: traditional sweets, melodious songs and Christmas decorations have the power to transmit joy and serenity within each family. In fact, Christmas is the day when there is only room for positive thoughts and, for this reason, everyone prefers to spend this wonderful party in a pleasant atmosphere doing some fun and relaxing things like, for example, decorating the artificial christmas trees. This very accurate and detailed operation, in fact, represents a moment of union and happiness within each family, especially for the little ones who are impatient and euphoric to discard the presents under the tree. Following are some small and simple tips that will help you decorate your Christmas tree in the best way, making it unique and special.

Christmas lights

When you decide to decorate a Christmas tree, the first step to do is the application of Christmas lights. The latter, in fact, must be arranged in a homogeneous and compact way on the tree choosing, depending on your style and preference, between the spiral or zigzag decoration. Once inserted, moreover, it is advisable to turn them on to verify that no shadow zones have been created on the tree that makes it look empty. Another important thing is also to make sure that the lights are not visible once the arrangement is finished: for this reason, it is advisable to place it between the branches and place it behind special decorations. Christmas lights are different depending on the color and musicality chosen. For those who do not like particularly bright colors, they could opt for a neutral color, such as, for example, white lights that create a not too contrasting effect with the other decorations.

Enrich the tree with Christmas decorations

After having achieved the first passage, it is possible to continue decorating the tree with a number of Christmas decorations such as bows, colored balls, ribbons, snowmen, Santa Claus men, little bells, sweets, colorful flowers, and many other personalized items. Furthermore, to arrange them in the right way, it is advisable to place the smaller ones in the upper part of the tree, gradually adding the larger ones towards the lower ends of the tree. The arrangement of the decorations varies according to the subjective taste of a person and that is why they can be positioned in any order, without following a logical and perfect scheme. If you do not prefer a tree of a single shade, moreover, it is advisable to avoid the combination of two objects of the same color in order to create a lively arrangement of colors.

Redefine the tree with colored cords and ribbons

To perfectly finish the decoration of the chosen Christmas tree, it is advisable to add a series of special objects that can give it a touch of class and unique and special style such as: the addition of colored ribbons to donate to the tree a more cheerful look, colorful chains or small bells that match the chosen decorations.

The most famous types of Christmas tree

For those who love to decorate their Christmas tree themed, you can choose from a wide range of Christmas trees on the market and each year represent the best-selling items to celebrate this wonderful day. Below are the most challenging Christmas trees most loved by customers. The tree made with roses made of crepe paper is chosen above all by people who love an elegant and accurate style. To make roses, you need to cut small rectangles of crepe paper and fold the 1/3 side. Finally, to create the spiral shape of the rose, it is necessary to wrap the crepe paper on itself. The tree made with dried fruit, which is one of the favorite trees of lovers of a simple and lively style.

The tree full of pouches loved especially by the little ones

The tree made of bidder Meier decorations, refined and artistic, of which the decorations are made by hand using simple and natural materials such as beads, pine cones, anise and beech seeds, and coffee beans. The tradition of the Christmas tree, for many years, was particularly popular in German-speaking Europe, as was the custom of the Christmas markets, but it has long been widespread also in the Catholic world.  For some scholars, the fir tree was chosen by the Christians among all the evergreen trees for its triangular shape, which would represent the Holy Trinity.  The spruce historically decorated as a Christmas tree is an evergreen conifer with the botanical name of Picea excels, widespread throughout northern and central Europe.  It has a characteristic conical crown with branches that start from the trunk horizontally, perfect for supporting decorations. Its leaves are dark-green pointed needles, produces pine cones containing fruits and can reach a height of 40-50 meters. In modern times, the artificial tree is used more, with less environmental impact if it is used for many years, and certainly more practical.  It is usually prepared a few weeks before Christmas, often on the day of the Immaculate Conception, and placed after the holidays.  Customs are distributed at the feet of the packages containing Christmas gifts, waiting to be discarded on Christmas Eve. From the times of the times, for different cultures and religions, the tree is a symbol of life and many legends have developed on the origin of the Christmas tree.  One of these legends tells that on a cold Christmas night a lumberjack was returning home, when suddenly he stopped looking at the sky, enchanted by the vision of the stars that shone through the branches of a fir-tree covered with snow.  To explain to his wife the show just seen, when he arrived home, he cut a small fir tree, brought it inside and adorned it with candles and festoons to reproduce the effect of the stars and snow on the branches.  Another legend is that of the miracle performed by Bishop Winfried, ( declared San Bonifacio after his death);while he was a missionary in Germany, he stopped the sacrifice of a little prince by some pagan worshipers of an oak tree, broke down the oak, and in its place appeared a fir tree, which he explained was the tree of life, representing Jesus Christ. There are several northern European cities that proclaim themselves the headquarters of the first Christmas tree, one of these being Riga, where there is a plaque in eight languages dating back to 1510, which celebrates the “first New Year tree”.  Another is Tallinn in Estonia, where in 1441, a large fir tree was erected in the town hall square, around which young men and women danced in search of a soul mate.

But for many centuries before, on the occasion of the winter solstice festival, a large evergreen tree was adorned with garlands to celebrate the return of the sun and the rebirth of nature. The Druids, Celtic priests, honored the fir-tree in various ceremonies and the Romans, at the Calends of January, gave it a twig as a wish for good luck. Originally the holiday tree was decorated with apples, walnuts, dates and paper flowers. In the eighteenth century, the fruit was replaced in garlands, ribbons and candles, until some Swiss and German manufacturers began to prepare light and colorful blown glass pendants, which became traditional ornaments of the Christmas fir.  For a long time, before 1600 the tradition of the Christmas tree remained typical of the regions to the north of the Rhine, where the Protestant doctrine was more widespread than the Catholic one. Originally the custom was to burn a resinous tree as a symbol of light. The first Christmas tree as we know it, seems to date back to 1611 when the Duchess of Brieg had a fir tree in her garden transplanted in pots to adorn a bare corner of one of the great halls of her castle in Germany, in view of the Christmas celebrations. The Prussian officials, after the Congress of Vienna, contributed to its diffusion also in the Catholic countries.  Even the German writer Goethe contributed to the spread of the Christmas tree by including a description in his most famous work, The Sorrows of Young Weather. In Vienna, the Christmas tree appeared in 1816, by the will of Princess Von Nassau-Weinberg, and in France in 1840, introduced by the Duchess of Orleans.  In Italy it was Queen Marguerite, in the second half of the nineteenth century, the first to decorate a Christmas tree, and fashion spread quickly throughout the country. According to the Catholic interpretation, the use of decorating the tree is a celebration of the wood of the Cross; the similarity between the sacred tree and the Cross was also used by the missionaries to convert the Germanic peoples to Christianity.

In the early years of the twentieth century, Christmas trees have experienced a moment of great diffusion, becoming gradually inevitable in the homes of all, up to represent the symbol of the most common Christmas on a planetary level. The other Christmas tradition, the crib, widespread in Catholic countries, was invented by St. Francis of Assisi, on Christmas Eve of 1223, when the saint recalled the birth of Jesus through the first living representation of the event.  According to legend, the puppet used to represent the Child Jesus took life several times, during mass, in the arms of St. Francis.  Today, in France, cribs have become a very important tradition for the celebration of Christmas and particularly famous are those of Provence. Also in the squares of many cities are erected and decorated beautiful Christmas trees, which give atmosphere and magic.

The legend of the Christmas tree

A story tells that, long ago, on Christmas Eve, in a snowy forest, Santa Claus (Saint Nicholas) met with the Child Jesus, with whom he always advised on the distribution of gifts. Jesus Child realized immediately that the mood of St. Nicholas was not the same as the other years, and asked him: – What is it that saddens you, my friend? – Santa Claus replied that in recent years he had noticed such a lack of enthusiasm for Christmas, in adults but also in children, to let him pass the passion for his work. The Child Jesus approved with his head and assumed a thoughtful expression and then said: – You’re right, I noticed it too, you have to find something new and suggestive to awaken the true Christmas joy. Thoughtfully they walked together through the white wood. In the forest everything was silent, the moon shone bright and clear, all the stars shone, the snow seemed silver and the firs stood there, black and white …. it was just a splendor! On a fir tree in the foreground, the fresh snow created beautiful decorations that gave shape to small icicles on the tips of the branches that glistened in the moonlight. Jesus Child and St.

 Nicholas stopped to look at him – It is simply wonderful! They exclaimed. – This is the solution to our problem. – Santa Claus pulled out of his sack of the beautiful red apples, tied them to the ribbons and passed them to Jesus Child who hung them on the branches of the fir tree, taking care not to drop the snow decorations. Then they also hung hazelnuts, sweets and lighted candles. When they had finished they took a few steps away and looked at him satisfied. Now the little tree stood there in the snow, among its snow-covered branches showed off, the ruddy apples, the golden and silver hazelnuts glistened, and the wax candles burned with joy. With his white and red face Baby Jesus was all smiling and St. Nicholas was no longer in a bad mood.

They saw the tree carefully and took it with them to the village where everyone slept. They stopped in front of the smaller house, entered and left as a gift, the fir tree so decorated; Santa Claus placed you under many other beautiful things: toys, sweets, apples, chestnuts, and hazelnuts. Then they left the little house on tiptoe as they had entered. The next morning, adults and children were amazed, there was such an atmosphere of joy in the house as never before. No child thought of toys, to the desserts … everyone looked at the tree with the lights, around which they danced and sang holding hands. When friends and relatives saw the beautiful tree, enthusiastic in front of such a marvel, they immediately went into the woods to get a tree too. In a short time in all the houses of the village, a Christmas tree shone, and everywhere you could hear the songs and the laughter of the children. From there the tradition of the Christmas tree has been around the world.
