Our annual holiday lights display continues to grow every year with this being our biggest display yet. Our first annual display was in 2004, our first year in our new home.
Here are some of the details of our Sea of Lights:
- 26,391 lights, 3,800 more lights than last year
- 223 strands of lights
- over 100 extension cords
The main additions this year are:
- white icicle lights hanging in our 12 front windows
- Holographic Nativity Set
- Penguins Holding Happy Holidays Sign
- Lighted Animated Gift Boxes
- 5 new candy cane (red and white) trees by driveway behind first row of trees
- 8 new bushes/shrubs in front of house
- new lighted wreath on oval window in front of house
With the five new trees and 8 new bushes decorated, we now have 57 trees and bushes decorated. 43 of them are trees.
We have some great ideas for future expansion for 2013 and beyond.
