Imagine living next door to this guy during Christmas time

Very interesting. Who's got the preplan on that?
I like christmas lights as much as the next, but have never been able to feel comfortable with my home wrapped up in wires and bulbs. I just got in trouble today as a matter of fact. "Dad, can we decorate the house with lights this year?" (Hanging my head) " No, I'm sorry kiddos, we can't." AAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Dad?
I really like the guy who put those lights up about ten years ago, and just keeps plugging them in year after year. I could not get away with that.
And what is up with those icecycle lights being run up along the gable end?There goes the neighborhood.

That was friggin AWESOME!! Just once....once, I'd like to be that creative. But I'm married...
Who wants to take bets that this guy is a slapper/wacker with a full bar light, deck light, dash light, visor lights, grill lights, and strobes all around?

They had someone on the news here about a year or two ago who did something similar. They showed how he did it, he had a couple computers controling it, something like they use at concerts to control the lighting. You have to be an expert to do something like that, I don't think they make an instruction booklet for those sorts of things."Training doesn't make you a good fireman, fighting fire makes you a good fireman"

I'll be willing to bet this guy is a pro. Either a theater tech, computer guy or somthing similar...
I was a theater electrician when I was in high school. I always had a hard time programing the lights to get all fancy like that. I just stuck with the sound board.

I love it!
As a kid my father was the Christmas light guy in our neighbourhood. From every peice of the house covered with lights, to Santa and the reindeer on the roof, and a Nativity scene on the front lawn. He always had it all covered.
He hasn't been well enough in many years to keep it up, and I haven't had the guts to take over that tradition.
This guy in the video has the right idea though.Never argue with an Idiot. They drag you down to their level, and then beat you with experience!

Way too much free time.
Anyone else notice how much the front yard changes with the flashing of the lights? towards the bottom of the screen? Real, doubtful. Creative, yes."This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

I can just see motorists pulling over as that house come up behind them....... We have a guy in the next town west of here who has a split foyer on a quarter acre lot, and enough decorations and lights for the whole county! I'll try to get a photo of it posted here later.Never use Force! Get a Bigger Hammer.
