Christmas Display - Ongoing but here's a Start


Santa & the tree are part of the inside decorations, that's a tinted window
Outside Icicle lights usually go up 1st, then the Nativity then the 5' Santa on the roof & a few inflatables

Then the lawn display goes up
Snowman Street
Lollipop Lane
Candy canes will go along the front fence
Lots of soldiers & nutcrackers go along the fence by the stream

Santa, sleigh, reindeer & assorted elves & others loading the sleigh

I still have a lot to connect & bring out
This is only maybe 1/2 the lawn decorations & there will be maybe a dozen more inflatables...a few are over 12' tall
Child Nativity & church have been getting bigger each year

Nice! And LOL at the police scene.

This makes me want to totally plan something crazy for next year and go all out. No funds this year.

Wonder if hydro companies have bulk discounts like "use 1MWH, get one half price".

...And they have to fill their quotas. So they say in ourtown. Anyway. The display is gorgeous. Keep it up!!! Is it 20, or 21 Circuits? When you run out of Breaker space you can always plug into my panel...! Provided you get a long enough extension cord. For the voltage drop calculations, you can always check with Yoizit! (That was meant as a compliment)

Haha yeah that's pretty much how it goes

Maybe setup solar panels so the lights can power themselves! If only it was that easy.

I could generate my own power then & break even
I'm only up to about 3,000w an hour I think
CFL's & LEDs

I went up on the roof & took some closer pics before it started to rain

Found my last roll of custom extension cords, so I was able to run the Candy canes & some other power runs
Now I can do more setup
I gotta put all this stuff in one place for next year
