We'd like to get a thread going with some pictures of Holiday Lighting that we run across.
I know we all see some real nice displays this time of year.
Text with how they were done, or any special "twists" would also be welcome.

How about it? What better place than ECN for a collection like this?

Please email any to me at
electure@sbcglobal.net
and I'll put them up, or you can send them to
webmaster@electrical-contractor.net

Thanks

dougwells found this, it's way cool

Unfortunately, it will probably only work with high speed internet connections and Windows Media Player

That was out of control! I had to re-start after I got up off the floor.

Holy Crap is right. That house would definitely make the evening news. Very cool.

WOW!!
Watching that display almost sent me into a seizure .

It would be interesting to see what kind of control system they use.

I'm afraid that a lot of people will probably scale down outdoor decorating this year because of the increase in POCO rates.

That was way cool!! although I can only imagine the myraid of extension cords that house is draped in right now

As Mike said, I'm curious as well as to what they're using for lighting controls to pull that off.... I'm not sure what would be used for something on that large of scale

I wouldn't be a bit surprised if there was a computer involved somehow.

Randy's right...the wiring must really be something!

That house is truly spectacular, that has to be computer controlled, can we get some more information on this? I would love to send my admiration to the creator, that is unbelievable.
