Christmas lights

This page will be updated as new information becomes available.


I’m entering final testing for the Christmas light show. I hope to have it ready to go live the day after Thanksgiving. The greatest challenges are electrical, as usual. There might not be enough power in this house, initially, and I might resort to adding circuits.

Update: Fri Nov 28 05:11:18 CST 2014

Everything is tested and running. There were a few comm problems resolved on Thanksgiving evening, and the FM transmitter appears to be working. I still would like to range-check it but it’s definitely working.


The show runs from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm Sunday through Thursday and 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm Friday and Saturday, starting the day after Thanksgiving through December 31. The show may be suspended when weather does not permit the safe operation of the show, or because of technical difficulties. This is my first Christmas here and I had to redo all the sequences. It’s very possible that I encounter technical/electrical problems, especially this first year. Please be patient, and check my Twitter Feed for updated cancellation information.



The show is an 18 minute and 21 second loop of musical sequences featuring the following song titles. For the arrangement/recording, you’ll just have to see the show.


As always, and with all Christmas light displays, unless otherwise directed by law enforcement officials or the show host:
