Decorating for Christmas? How does your Light Display compare to this one?

One of the things I love about Christmas are the wonderful light displays one sees around and about. Here it gets dark so early and if the weather is miserable they go a long way towards lifting one's mood.

For many years we only had indoor lights on our Christmas tree but even our display has broadened somewhat. But if you want to see what the current techno whizzes are doing in the Christmas light area just watch the display in this YouTube video which won a world wide competition.

Jeff Trykoski decorated his parents' house for some years and then in 2001 he bought his own house and each year it has become more elaborate. In 2004 the light display became computer controlled and music was added which is broadcast on a local radio frequency for the passersby to enjoy on their car radios. I am sure that he has put his city of Frisco, Texas on the map with this delightful techno wizardry, not to mention the amazing amount of work involved. Enjoy!

Sometimes it seems to me Christmas starts way too early in the stores these days.

But lights do cheer up when there is not much daylight and the weather is nasty ^_^

Those light displays always amaze me and the music is so fitting :-)

Yes Christmas does seem to come to the stores earlier each year Miss Moggs. But I do love the lights.

Isn't this something else Cherie? What a lot of work!
