Every year we spend thousands... creating a light show on our house... Causing hundreds of thousands of people to drive by our house and tune their radio to the appropriate station to enjoy the lights synchronized to the music. We have already started the programing for our 2016 light show. It takes about 20 hours of programming per song and we have 38 songs we are doing... It's going to be a long year before next Christmas.

However it is all worth it to know that there is someone out there who is enjoying something they couldn't do for themselves.

I feel so sad and un-fulfilled.

Do you have a video of it? I love those kinds of displays!

Not my house, but one I've visited the past few years. There were definitely more people there this year! Then I realized they actually won an episode of The Great Christmas Light Fight last year! It's quite amazing, and Disney fans should really appreciate it! We tried counting all 101 Dalmations but we got to 50-something and couldn't find more.

In the "Post Your Christmas Tree" thread, there's a mention of a "sort of" coaster themed decoration,
with LEDs and various carols played as the train goes round and round and....it's a Larson Loop, right? :wink:

Couldn't resist. Checked on it's availability up here in Canada. Found our local Home Depot had them, and
this morning I went there and picked one of the (then) several available. I might check the place again after
this coming weekend and see if the Drop Tower (only it and coaster were available) is still available, and maybe
marked down, etc.

And in US Dollars, it's cheaper up here than down there! :angel:

All the lights work, the sound is fine, and the "coaster" goes round and round and..... (o;

Just picked this up, at the Hallmark shop in The Mall, and remembering I
must check this place out more after-the-holiday seasons. Anyhoo...

And - now after The Day - 75% off! :shockr:

Hmmm. I may go back and buy a couple more at this sale price. :wink:

And it has sound too. Mostly dialogue, few coaster 'sounds' but that's ok.
I mean, it's Walley World!

(And this ornament too. Also 75% off!
And of course, it has sound with... what else?)

My Christmas decorations came down right before New Years Eve. Christmas stuff in January is one of my pet peeves.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

I LOVE Christmas and everything about it, and to me the Holiday Season STARTS on December 26th every year :b

However I will take the decorations down to be courteous to my neighbors (and so the Scrooges at the Homeowners Association won't fine me)

I usually remove them in phases starting on January 2 or 3: tree, outside lights, Christmas village.

Finally got all of our stuff down, today.
Except the cards.
The cards are always last to come down.

;)

Ohhh....darnit. :oops: Read it wrong. Um...

ACTUALLY ~ Maybe, the original message should be adjusted to include
decorations being put up. Besides being (eventually) taken down.
