Sneak Peek From The Past
How long does it take to set-up and how many bulbs are there?
It usually takes about two weeks to set up.
In total we run approx 29,000+ bulbs with about 8,800 of those being RGB smart pixels.
The programming alone has taken around 300+ hours using Light O Rama software.
There are around 105 Master Props, with approx 22,000 channels running through 3 networks.
We begin by laying out all of our electrical. This allows for us to test each strand as we hang up the lights. Once all of our "dumb" LEDs are hung, we then connect those to our two "dumb" AC Controllers. After we've set all of those up, we begin working on our RGB smart pixels. Once all of those are in place, we connect all of those to their controllers which there are 9 of. Lastly, we run our network cables. These are all hung overhead and then run under the house and into our control room to the computer.
Why do I see the show run before the start date and at odd times?
Just like any other show, we have to do trial runs. Glitches do happen and we want to make sure things are running properly before we open to the public. We also do private showings for nursing homes, retirement homes, homes for people with disabilities and of course, for our friends and family.
How much is the electric bill?
Not as bad as you might think. The lights flicker on and off and they are all LED's.
Why is the music out of sync with the lights?
Some car radios will buffer the music before they play. When that happens, the music will be out of sync.
I can't get my headlights to turn off. Help!
This doesn't always work but it does work on many of the newer cars with running lights. With the vehicle on and in park, engage the emergency brake then turn off the vehicle. Turn the vehicle back on with the emergency brake still engaged and then toggle your light switch to off. This should turn off running lights along with typical headlights. Please don't forget to turn your lights back on when in motion though!
How long have you been doing this?
Since 2020. With the pandemic going on and so many events canceled, we wanted to offer something for the community to do that would be safe and bring in the holiday spirit. This was just something we had always talked about doing and the pandemic lit a fire within us to bring our vision to life.
How can I request a song for next year?
Go to the "Contact" section of the web page and make a request. I'll think about it! :)
How much did it cost?
I don't really know. The lights we have, have accumulated over the years, so it is hard to give even a rough estimate. Every light on the actual house itself, we've had since about 2015. Then, a few years back, Lowe's had accidentally mislabeled their Christmas lights at less than 50% their normal cost on Black Friday and honored their markdown; so we got a great deal on all our LED's! We literally wiped out the shelves at both the local Lowe's store and the Santa Fe Lowe's store that day. For the RGB smart pixels, we have slowly accumulated those throughout the last 3 years. Some of the props we have built ourselves while others we have bought kits for. Each year we seem to get new ideas and inspiration though, so it just all slowly piles up.
How can I donate?
Donations are appreciated but please don't feel that you have to donate.
All proceeds will go towards maintaining props, potential new props, replacement of strands or towards anything that has weathered or worn out.
