This year is unique for us in that this year we actually have 6 days LESS between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. That means a shorter retail shopping season. I work in retail so THANK GOD for that. The DOWNSIDE, however, is that because I like to launch the Light Show Display on Thanksgiving Day, that’s 6 less days the show would run.
The solution: I’ve worked ahead of schedule; my lights are already up and the programming that syncs the lights to music is 90% complete.
So when will the show launch this year?
NOVEMBER 20th! That’s 8 days before Thanksgiving this year–plenty of time for people to come see the show, donate to the Beyond Our Walls year-round fundraiser sponsored by Cedar Creek Church here in Toledo, and then come back to see the show donate again, come see the show yet again, and then donate agaaain, over and over.
Show dates and times for 2013 are:
November 20th through January 4th
5:30 pm to 12:30 am, 7 days a week.
Fall is in full swing, Halloween is behind us, and the temperature is dropping. As a matter of fact we had our first snow fairly early this year just last night.
If you are new to this blog and my Christmas Light Show at my home in Toledo, OH, WELCOME! This is will be the 7th consecutive year for what I call the Merry Digital Christmas Light Show.
Why that name? Because each year I cover my house and yard in ALL super-bright LED Christmas lights and then using a computer and the most sophisticated power strips (not really a power strip) you’ve ever seen to plug all the lights into, I put on a brilliant show of lights synced to some rockin’ Christmas music!
Throughout the season, I will post all kinds of updates here so check back often!
I hope everyone enjoyed the 2012 display as much as I enjoyed putting it all together.
Look forward to updates later this year for the 2013 display… Have a great spring and summer! See ya in late fall!
The 2012 Merry Digital Christmas light show is LIVE.
Don’t let this short post fool you. The show is just as awesome as ever and I invite everyone to come watch.
