176 channels and 45,000 lights!
« on: January 08, 2014, 11:46:59 AM »
Hey Everyone,

I know Christmas is past but I thought I would share this with ya.   This house has a Christmas light display with 176 channels and 45,000 lights!  I read where the show is so popular that it requires a crew of 3 people to manage the traffic!

Thanks,
Mark

Wow! I'd love to see that in person and not only on videos. Still, can't help but wonder how high is their electricity bill.

How about how many it takes to set the thing up?  And how long? Not to mention, like Korry says, the electric bill.

Thanks for sharing, Mark.  What a spectacular sight!

Yeah, I'm sure it took a lot of man hours to set that up. I can't imagine.  Although I have to say it would be fun to help out with something like that!  8)ss

There is one similar attraction in Croatia - one family decorate their whole property every Christmas, this year they've reached 1 million lights. In one of the interviews they said they start decorating the first week of September so they can be ready for opening in the middle of December.

A spectacular show.
Not sure I would have the patience and focus to complete this show.
