It is less than 2 months to Christmas and I have been having fun with my halloween decorations - should have hundreds of trick-or-treaters on October 31st. But that is just a warmup for Christmas 2008, so I have re-enabled commenting on the Christmas Blog. Once again, there will be lots of Christmas Lights along with the zany christmas webcam which should be online by December 1st and maybe Thanksgiving.
And yes, Homer Simpson will be baacckk - D'OH! ;-)

Twas the night before Christmas and Santa he found the weather was terrible he could not see the ground. Now Rudolph with his nose so bright was like high beams on a foggy foggy night. Santa he strained and looked thru the night for a landmark or any familiar site. Santa he knew just what to do, I will control the lights thanks to Alek the Christmas Guru. So Santa with his magic you see was able to use the correct IP. Now Rudolph was the first to see Santa inflating Frostee. Now Alek was waving and pointing the way. Santa yelled out you saved Christmas Day

It___s Christmas again!! A time to cherish the beautiful white snow, smiling snowman, brightness of the Christmas d___cor and the yummy candies and cakes! From November onwards it becomes impossible to forget that Christmas is coming. Well to be honest I personally wait for it so that I can return home to meet my parents and girlfriend of course61514______! With the passage of time lots of things about the celebration of Christmas has changed. I still remember when I was a kid, mom use to wait near the phone so that she becomes the first one to pick my brother call. We all use to have a fight as who is gonna be first to talk to him. Then I use to visit my relatives and friends with my parents who stayed near by.But now the net world has changed everything, especially the ecard trend. It___s so easy now to connect with our loved ones especially when you have so many ecard sites! One of my favorite website is LINK DELETED

Well Halloweens over next stop Christmas....Woohooo
YEP - I just shut down the Halloween Webcam. It was a ton of fun (especially with the voting for Obama, McCain, or HULK!) and below are pictures of what things looked like from webcam 1, 2, & 3 - be nice to get my office cleaned up. A good warmup for Christmas ... but (yikes!) Thanksgiving is just over three weeks away - time to start setting up!

21 - United States - Los Angeles California 34.041°N 118.298°W
my comment night not be cheerfull because this is the truth for all you christmas adicts out there. Christmas will not be the same because of the failing economy so there wont be any gifts or decorations bought this year so dont get your hopes up. Im sure not! I know, so Im not expecting anything from anyone.
22 - United States - Woodstock Illinois 42.322°N 88.467°W
:( we got a scrouge in our midsts! :o
23 - United States - Skokie Illinois 42.034°N 87.761°W
Dear 21: Christmas will be the same because I will have my family and all of the love and memories that always accompany Christmas. We will have our traditional cookies and chili on Christmas Eve and we will sit together on Christmas morning and read the story from the Bible as a family. Christmas will not only be the same, it will be better as I reunite with family I have not seen in quite some time. It's not about the material things. It never has been.
24 - Canada - Spruce Grove Alberta 53.533°N 113.916°W

So Obama is our new president. woot woot!!!!!!!!!!
28 - United States - Copperas Cove Texas 31.200°N 97.992°W
I have always wondered, how come you use skeleton homer for Christmas? Is it just because you like homer and don't have a Christmas one?
Yep. I actually do have a Chistmas Homer (look above SpongeBob SquarePants in post #1), but he is only 4 feet tall. If Santa sent me a big Christmas Homer inflatable, I'd put him up!
29 - United States - Troy Michigan 42.556°N 83.176°W
well well well... alek's poll predicted the presidential election!!!!
Yea, the presidential voting on the Halloween Decorations Webcam resulted in 21,996 votes for Obama, 21,821 for McCain, and 21,692 for the Hulk - complete data here. Better luck for the Green party candidate in 2012! ;-)

33 - United States - Fort Smith Arkansas 35.339°N 94.383°W
Mr. G, have you ever investigated controlling your lights with the Light O' Rama system (ref: Carson Williams) ? Just curious..... This question may have already been asked...
Yea, I've been asked that just a few times! It would be cool to do Light O' Rama or similar systems, but those cost quite a few dollars and my X10 stuff is paid for. Plus syncing up video/audio across the web would be difficult and require a lot more bandwidth for the Christmas traffic I get. He put together a nifty show at a nearby mall - see more Carson Williams picture here.
34 - United Kingdom - 54.000°N 2.000°W

Can't wait until the decorations are up. It's refreshing to see such enthusiasm still when concerning Christmas.
Thanks Josh - it's a ton of fun ... and while the kids' don't light up for me quite as much as they do for Santa, it's a real pleasure to see the 'em smile when they see my Christmas Display.

I just saw on the news where because drumsticks are everyone's Thanksgiving favorite, a farmer succeded in breeding a six legged turkey. They asked him how it tasted and he said, "I don't know, I can't catch the darn thing"!
43 - United States - Dallas Texas 32.787°N 96.800°W
As it turns out,not only is the hulk green, but the Grinch is green also. He folds and fits in your wallet. And with the way things are looking right now, he's already threatening this year's Christmas season. As a matter of fact, China has already cancelled the holiday. It's frightening to hear people who normally go all out for the holidays count how many pay periods they have between now and then. Not to be a downer, but the nativity scene might be the only thing under the tree in some households on Christmas morning this year. So Alek leave your lights on Christmas morning So some kids will have something to play with
I've had a number of people express similar sentiments in these troubled times - even with the down economy, they want something to smile about ... so you betcha the lights will be on at komar.org!

Today was Veteran's Day, so I salute/appreciate the men & women in uniform that have kept our country free. On a lighter note, there was no school ... so the kids helped me put away the Halloween Decorations and pull out the Christmas Lights from my basement crawlspace.

While the house doesn't look that different yet, there's been a lot of work behind the scenes as the Christmas setup has been ongoing. A bunch of stuff has been tested (the train has some burnt out wheels) and is now staged in the backyard - another picture. I plan to do a lot of the setup this weekend with the balmy weather and still hoping to have the webcams and X10 controls online by Thanksgiving.

Alex really doesn't need face book for publicity, just type in Christmas lights web cam, almost everything that comes up is his page, or a page linking his page, or a page talking about the hoax, then linking to the page... ha ha

Hey Alex, Why does it say offline on the High Def page??? jw?

Those are the newspapers. Weather will be nice this weekend, so expect a lot of setup action. For those that missed the last few days, there are some time-lapse movies on the christmas video page including putting the Santa Plane on the roof and initial front yard setup. I have also turned on the "number of viewers" feature.

89 - United States - Hulkville in the Republic of Boulder, Colorado
My two sons Dirk-n-Kyle were a big help in this year's design. We decided to bring back the HO-HO-HO (in White, Green, and Red) and here's a video of that setup - we'll see how straight it is when it is lit up. I also made some adjustments to the Santa Plane on top of the house and you can see my shadow in the video.
90 - United States - Fort Smith Arkansas 35.339°N 94.383°W

Yea, I was doing some testing tonight of the X10 controls and other misc. - everything seems to work after I worked out a few bugs. While there is a lot more christmas setup to do (especially in Santa's workshop), I'm going to turn on all of the webcams and X10 controls Wednesday night so people on the Internet can see and control the lights! ;-)

Webcam1 is a pretty boring view when the lights aren't up - heck, not even passing cars. So I take it offline and just toss an image of what it looks like lit up when the christmas stuff is off.
183 - United Kingdom - Derby 52.933°N 1.500°W
Don't forget Alek, it would be nice to see a picture of the yummy food you had for Thanksgiving day.Luke went back to school today after his operation:-)
Good for Luke. I'm not sure I'll get a picture this year since I'm in charge of the turkey carving - Tyler (who does an amazing job - see below) won't be there this year.
UPDATE: Here's a picture of yours truly about to carve up the turkey - it was yummy!

Hi Snoopy, I can see you!
Yea, I was working on the four and six foot inflatables on top of the balcony - adding some poles to help 'em stand up straight when inflated. Sure wish the fans were just a little more powerful so Homer's pointy hat would stand up straight and be more visible on webcam2.

Got a couple inches of white stuff overnight. While it adds to the Christmas spirit, it adds a bit of weight to the inflatables, especially the giant Santa. But the Frosty family is liking it!

The snow shovel was gathering dust in the back corner of the garage, but I finally found it and then cleared the driveway this morning for my wife. For those that missed the action, I've uploaded a short time-lapse movie on the christmas videos page - some exercise is good for 'ya!
Update: I then swept the front yard ... so the HO-HO-HO and Gianted lighted Frosty are visible.
223 - United Kingdom - Greenock Inverclyde 55.933°N 4.750°W

Christmas I will never forget one Christmas When snow was on the ground Happy children's faces Could everywhere be found But let us all remember Of a Christmas long ago In a land so far away With not a lot of snow In a stable all forlorn Baby Jesus here was born In a manger he did lay In amongst the cattle's hay He came to save the world from sin Hallelujah to the king!!!!!!

So I wandered over to the neighbor's house this evening and shot some pictures from where webcam1 is located - what a glorious Colorado Sunset! The pictures don't do it justice ... even the ones with the Canon 50D DSLR - bummer the D-Link DCS-6620 webcam doesn't have that level of image quality - mouse over picture #2 to see a comparision.

I really like Christmas. I like all the preparations, I like the songs (even if I'm Not Christian). I like the focus and family and hearth. And I think its kinda nostaligic maudlin sentimentalism - a longing for a time that never existed in my life - for the good old days, even for the years where my life was pretty pathetic (junior high). And yet every year I'm drawn into it - the Christmas season - once again. Do I ever obtain what I'm longing for - family the way it used to be - which was a mixture of parental fighting of, of parental favorites, and yet I had my whole life ahead of me, and I had security. I suspect I must get some small token of what I'm longing for, or would I spend so much time & effort pursuing this.

Hey guys, I appreciate the support, but everyone is entitled to their opinion, so I'd just let it go. I think what #372 didn't realize is that the concept of controlling someone's Christmas Lights over the Internet is over-the-top ... so the web design is also - D'OH!
Speaking of stuff that stirs people up, some people complain about how the Christmas Display uses soooo much electricity. They must not scroll down below the webcam images where I provide a complete Cicuit Layout and Electrical Analysis. It ends up being a couple of bucks a day ... and even better for the Al Gore's of the world, I use Wind Power plus did a Carbon Offsets ... so we're talking Wind-Powered, Carbon Neutral Christmas Lights - Double D'OH! ;-)
382 - United States - San Diego California 32.797°N 117.132°W
Whoa, drama! C'mon guys, tis the season to be jolly for goodness sake!
I agree ... and speaking of that, here's something I picked up at a garage sale for 25 cents. It has some nice Christmas Decorations "tricks" ... but no mention of Elmo, SpongeBob, or Homer Simpson - D'OH! ;-)
383 - United Kingdom - Birmingham 52.466°N 1.916°W

so the Big Red Guy could visit the kids.
Some reflections from the window as I fire the remote shutter release
Yep - that's Frosty the Snowman riding Shotgun in the Santa Wagon!

I was googling to see if there was anything else like this anywhere because this really does amaze me as you can see by all my visits :) and I came across an old news article, is this real now? or still providing some holiday cheer to folks? xx

While most web surfers focus on the totally free & fun aspect of the Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease, it also raises awareness and funds for research to find a cure. The fine folks at ChristmasLightsEtc made a generous donation today to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research. Needless to say, they sell Christmas Lights plus I got a chuckle out of some of the funny Halloween Costumes on their sister site. Thanks you CLE for helping out Celiac Disease.

One nifty toy I picked up for cheap on eBay is a Canon wireless remote trigger.. It actually works pretty darn well and has a range of a couple of hundred feet ... so I took a self-portrait here with the remote in my right hand and a flashlight in my left providing some poor-man's flash to illuminate me a bit.
Some Cub Scouts from our local Pack came by to check out the Christmas Lights

For me the best gift I have ever given has been a live call from Santa Claus. It is amazing to see the face of a child light up at the mere mention of Santa. I came across a holiday website that plays 24 hour a day Christmas music and has a live broadcast every night of Santa Claus reading a Christmas story. My son and I watch every night to hear such incredible bedtime stories from the super hero himself. When I browsed the site I realized they also offer Live Santa calls. The price was amazingly low and the attention Santa gave my son was unmatched. Santa took his time talking to Bret and even emailed me a mp3 recording of the call. I filled out the order form and Santa spoke with Bret like he had known him for years. My son has not stopped talking about the call and many of his friends parents have requested info because of Bret's experience. Thank you HiSantaClaus ,you have given my entire family a Christmas gift. Charles M.

Is it fake this year or real? I like it better when it's a big joke.
There was some good comedy when it was a fun little hoax/simulation ... but it's been a 100% real since 2005. Ditto the over $30,000 raised for Celiac Disease.

What is the new wireless router alek? Early Christmas present is it!
Just an el-cheapo D-Link wireless router - another thing I picked up on Black Friday.
459 - United Kingdom - London 51.500°N 0.116°W
Isn't a DSL-2740B? I would recommend that for Wireless N usage if you plan to upgrade to N in the future?
It was an el-cheapo WBR-2310 ... no "N" capability, since those cost more, plus the D-Link DCS-6620G Webcams (as implied by the "G") don't support the 802.11N standard. Ironically, the older D-Link DI-524 wireless router seems to be more reliable ... so I switched back to it.

Yea, after sunny skies and 60°F yesterday, we have sub-zero weather today ... along with another 6-8" of snow. Inflatables had to "bust out" of the snow as seen below.

k if i vote do u promise 2 give me sum of that KFC
WOW - you noticed that fast ... I just put up a notice on the website about the KFC Holiday Traditions Contest.
Kentucky Fried Chicken is running a nationwide Holiday Traditions Contest and Colonel Sanders has selected the Controllable Christmas Lights for Celiac Disease as a semi-finalist.
The winner receives an entire year of finger-lickin' good KFC chicken; Original, BBQ, or (my favorite) Extra Crispy - that's a lot of 15 piece buckets!
The winner also receives a $1,000 and while I'm tempted to use that to buy even more Christmas Lights, I will have KFC donate the entire amount directly to the University of Maryland Center for Celiac Research which my (crazy) holiday lights have already raised over $30,000 for to help find a cure.
The contest winner is determined by Internet voting through December 21st, 2008 so please consider voting for my site and help win a $1,000 for Celiac Disease.
So surf on by, tell your friends, blog about it, spread the word, etc.
And I can't eat that much KFC, so for sure I'll be sharing some chicken
made with a secret receipe of 11 herbs and spices - D'OH!
Merry Christmas and HO-HO-HO! ;-)
P.S. Here's the link with with more info and then cast your vote to win $1,000 for Celiac Disease

It is really sad to read the plights of a lot of people due to the economic situation and their struggle to try and get presents fror their children. Nothing is more heart-wrenching than not being able to meet your childrens' expectations. I wish we can use this situation to give them the biggest gift we can give! Let us take this opportunity to teach them what is real important in life___ it is not the material things, it is your pride and dignity. Do not let them see you borrowing so they can have a new toy. Instead show thm that it is not important to keep up with the Joneses but to act responsibly with dignity. Do not get into a debt to see those little faces lit up. Explain to them why this year they cannot have new toys so they and their parents can live with dignity. These lessons are more important than anything you can teach them. GIVE THM THE GIFT OF TOUGH LOVE THAT WILL GUIDE THEM THE REST OF THEIR LIFE.

Do you know I very nearly had to buy myself some KFC crispy chicken today. All this KFC talk on here had me salivating. When I passed a KFC today the great smell was nearly too much!! I resisted the urge, guess I'll be waiting for UPS to deliver a crispy chicken bucket from Colorado when Alek wins!

Since I've added a few "embellishments" for the KFC Christmas Contest, I thought it might be nifty to see some time-lapse animation of them in action ... so check out the December 16th Christmas Videos - Holy Flashing K-F-C Lights Batman! ;-)

539 - United States - Fort Smith Arkansas 35.339°N 94.383°W
Alek, did you get more snow? The street is covered again...
540 - United States - Jacksonville Beach Florida 30.280°N 81.405°W
Happy HOlidays! Good luck on the KFC thing! I voted, but thought it was ironic to try to get money from a place your kid can't eat at. Trust me...I know your pain. My daughter has Celiac's, I miss my gluten!
541 - United Kingdom - Greenock Inverclyde 55.933°N 4.750°W
Alek your neighbours dont seem very festive can really see any lights or decorations on there houses is it only you in your street that does this kind of thing as in a picture you took before you said your neighbours had their decorations up before you and you were in the pic with and inflatable pengiun sort of thing but i cant even see that?? Can you help thanks and before i finish going on and on great display love the lights and hope you win.

544 - United States - Hulkville in the Republic of Boulder, Colorado
In answer to various questions below: Someone should ask the ISS astronauts if they can see my house as they pass over. Yes, we got a dusting of snow today with cold weather next week ... so probably will have a White Christmas this year. The neighbors have some great looking displays (although not as tacky) and there a fair number of drive-by's since it is a public road. I appreciate the "know your pain" comment since yes, going gluten free is a pain-in-the-butt. Thanks everyone that has voted in the KFC Contest.
545 - United States - Dexter Missouri 36.780°N 89.999°W
It wasn't much but we just donated to your cause. I love the way you have the lights set up. Gives me some ideas for mine next year. Thanks again for the show. Rick and Chrisie Murray
546 - United States - Dexter Missouri 36.780°N 89.999°W
I hope all of you have a very Merry Christmas. We kinda do the same thing here for our local rescue mission. We ask for canned goods to be donated as folks drive by. Go to YouTube and put in ZZtopmo for my videos of our display.

Your kids will not be able to eat the KFC with you. Extra Crispy is like crispy death for them. My wife has Celiacs disease and I have had to change my diet also. I still can't believe all the things made with wheat gluten.

A word of warning Mr Murray, don't tell "Crazy Kina" where you live. I won't go into details, but I've had to take out a restraining order on her. And Mr Grassmas, The Boulder Daily article published your street address, so now she knows how to find you. Luckily the cameras will warn you when she's coming, but still, best lock up your valuables.

So the Grinch is in Canada at the moment. Merry Christmas Grinch! Santa, and the tooth fairy, and the Easter bunny are all alive and well, omnipresent, and live within all who believe in them - I think the fake one you saw was just a drunk in a red suit celebrating the end of work for the Christmas holidays.

It's the longest
day night of the year ... and also the last day to vote in the KFC Contest - I appreciate people considering my entry. Also, I took some pictures of the Friday newspaper (see blog post #549) - my Mom isn't too keen about me climbing on roofs, so probably good thing she didn't see this! Funniest back-story is my wife was out of the house, so I didn't tell her about the photo shoot earlier in the week ... and amazingly, my kids didn't spill the beans (so I owe 'em something "really special" now). So we were able to surprise Wendy at the breakfast table Friday morning when she opened up the paper to see me on the front page - would have been even better if the picture locations had been switched and she had seen me and the boys on the cover! ;-)
575 - United States - Fort Smith Arkansas 35.339°N 94.383°W

Well, not long now until we find out if Mr Alek has won the KFC competition.I'm sure we are all on the edge of our seats waiting and looking at that KFC website.

I appreciate all the congrats on the KFC contest. Along those lines, I thought it might be fun to take a few pictures of the Christmas display with everything turned OFF ... and then "draw" a KFC using an LED light. I took a few more shots with my ultra-wide Canon 10-22mm lens. As noted, the moon has not risen yet, so it's pretty darn dark outside. These are pretty much straight out of the camera with just white balance adjustment.

Here's a link to John Romero's FOX TV segment that they did tonight - they also plan to send their helicopter over the house at O-dark-30 tomorrow morning, so I'll turn the lights on for them.
Channel 2 was also out and here is Laura Main's report
plus you can watch footage from webcams
My main contribution was being the paparazzi mentioned at the end of the that piece (ooops) as my kids totally steal the show! So I got my 15 minutes of fame Tuesday night ... but tomorrow is Wednesday - trash day - guess who takes that out! ;-)
Kyle being interviewed by FOX (there was only one Santa Hat, so the boys had to share)
Channel 2 does a closeup of Kyle and Dirk - later with hat and X10 Remote Control Unit
Kyle talking about his favorite Christmas Decorations for Channel 2
Kyle "did" his own hair - my media "coaching" was simply "just be yourself and have fun"

Sky Fox Helicopter plans to do a flyover this morning. Originally was 5:45, but they are checking out a warehouse fire so now expected over target around 6:15 - tune in to Denver Channel 13 for live view from a 1,000 feet up! Update: here's a picture from the middle of my yard - best I could do in the pitch black - 300mm telephoto, 1/30s handheld, F/5.6, and ISO 6400! I also shot some video of the TV screen of what the heli view looked like but this is a poor quality video and overly large.

You are a very special person for taking the time to make so many feel your cheer and spirit. I am just down the road in Broomfield and would be happy to bring you a egg-nog or brandy for all your hard uncaring work. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family, may peace be with you, and a very Happy New Year.
Thanks for the kind words and nice offer Joe ... Egg-Nog with Brandy is darn good ... but maybe consider a donation to Celiac Disease. BTW, there is an awesome display in your neck of the woods on TinCup off of Telluride. I have chatted with the owner - nice guy - heir display is incredible!

I had a nice Christmas with family ... and the "giant double hoop basketball machine" is a huge hit with my kids - noise level just quadrupled in the house! I hope everyone else also had a Merry Christmas. And since it is Christmas Day, I have switched back to HO-HO-HO in the front yard instead of the giant rope light KFC. There were thousands of people watching and controlling the lights yesterday (Christmas Eve is usually the busiest night), but traffic will tail off quickly now ... so less Internet surfers to battle for control of the Christmas Lights! ;-)

Alex, it is generally considered impolite to display IP's. I recommend that you hash the IPs. (ex. 67.86.140._________) Also you should really use a look up system that displays the standard IP format. (ex. 67.86.140._________ instead of 067.086.140._________)

As noted on the main page, the christmas display runs until New Years - I'll take it down when we have a warm dry spell. Front yard cam #2 is 7x24 - others are when the display is on. And yes, I did pick up some stuff at the post-Christmas sales at up to 70% off ... but you'll have to wait until next year to see it. Finally, here's a picture of the monster double hoop basketball game that has quadrupled the sound level in my house - it's a ton of fun! ;-)
690 - United Kingdom - Derby 52.933°N 1.500°W
Hi Alek, Hope you and your family had a lovely Christmas, the boy's certainly look as though they have had fun. Maybe you should get some earplugs for the new year. I was expecting to see your tree on the cam this year, so that we can spot the red guy. Could we see a picture of your tree anyway, that would be nice. Luke's Mum, UK.

Jean from Wisconsin sent me a nice note this evening along with a cool banner that I have put on the main Christmas page
"Keep up the good work with your displays. Your kids are lucky to have you as a dad. You're making very special memories for them that they'll cherish for the rest of their lives. I've been in the 'kid' business for 30 years as a writer/editor in children's publishing (20 years at Golden Books and the past 10 as a freelance writer). Prior to that, I was an elementary school teacher for a couple of years. It's always great to see parents involved creatively with their kids. I'm looking forward to checking back next year."
- thanks Jean!

Hey Alek, how much did you raise for Celiac this year. I saw $30K and $35K. What did it end up being? Have a safe New Year's.
I last checked in with the University of Maryland folks a week ago and per the donation page, the total as of December 22nd was $35,950. I'll do a final tally after New Years - thank you everyone that donated to charity.

I am truly blessed and lucky to be alive and living with my four healthy kids. I love what you did to the place!! I also loved ribbing you a little on the im screen, all in good fun though!!! Have a great new year!!

Hi Alek. Just looking at the front yard webcam. Looks like the christmas tree and snowmen have taking a bit of tumble during the night. Happy New Year to you and your family.
We get occasional strong Chinook winds from the Continental Divide. I guess I should be happy that the peak gust was only (!) 72 MPH on this one as we've had a few over 100MPH. Took a bit of damage - pictures are worth a thousand words - note that Hulk's Santa hat was still on this morning! ;-)
Front yard - almost everything standing is knocked down (despite being staked) including fence and 10' tree
Side View of fence and related carnage ... a few candy canes are still standing
Lighted Santa Plane (top roof) and Train (above garage) are high drag objects - note safety rope saved 'em
70° bending of metal (from Santa Plane) and broken stake (from Candy Cane)
706 - United Kingdom - Londonderry Derry 55.000°N 7.333°W
The lights seem to have taken a good battering. I noticed after I posted the previous comment that there was a lot of wind. I could see the roof lights and pumpkin jack being tossed around quite a bit. Hope they all still work.
707 - United Kingdom - London 51.500°N 0.116°W
Hey Alek r u gonna turn cam1 on wen u fix the lights on tye roof
708 - United States - Fort Smith Arkansas 35.339°N 94.383°W
Hmmmm....this close to New Years, have to decide whether it is worth the trouble setting everything back up. Only going to be running another night or two....
709 - United Kingdom - Coventry 52.416°N 1.550°W
Hey Alek, have you took some of the lights and decorations of the garage roof? Did they all break in the wind?
710 - United States - Swartz Creek Michigan 42.942°N 83.827°W
Hey Alex, is this the last day to control the lights?? if so you should extend the time a extra hour.
Per the main page, the last night will be January 1st. And yea, the display is running with a few thousand less lights because of the wind storm last night ... although I fixed/repaired quite a few for the last three days.
711 - Canada - Saint John New Brunswick 45.266°N 66.066°W
Alek - my sincere Thank You for this site. Best Wishes to you and your family for 2009. Your hard work and dedication is admirable.
712 - United Kingdom - Greenock Inverclyde 55.933°N 4.750°W
hi alek if you could notify me if i am right will you leave the cam facing the front yard on so we can see you taking them down?? and what time will you be taking them down?? Thanks if you could reply so i know when to log on Many thanks Happy new year to you and your family!x
I'll be taking things down shortly after the last night of X10 controls on January 1st and the front yard cam will be online 7x24 until that is done. The exact date/time will depend on weather and my family's schedule.

Here's a wide-angle picture from before the wind damage - closer up.
715 - United States - Swartz Creek Michigan 42.942°N 83.827°W
Hey alex, are going to keep the lights on till Midnight on your Time zone???
I've extended it an extra hour ... so at least until 11:00PM local ... although I usually watch the Midnight Ball Drop in New York City (at 10:00 PM here) and then hit the sack shortly thereafter ... plus may take the family skiing on New Years Day.

750 - Canada - Spruce Grove Alberta 53.533°N 113.916°W
hey Alek. I was wondering, the show this year was fantastic, really! so I'm not saying it wasn't. but perhaps for 2009 you should look at changing things up a little? surprise us in 09 with someone totally unexpected! Along with what you bought that's new.. make some surprises for us when the cameras turn on! shake it up a little, have some fun with it! ya know??
Needless to say, I'm always up for something zany ... but it's hard to come up with something truly original/unique/unexpected ... such as allowing people over the Internet to turn my Christmas Lights on & off! ;-)
751 - United States - Flushing New York 40.729°N 73.825°W
that was quick alek. one day to take every thing down but to put it up 2 weeks. (lol) yha i no it a big job. see u at watching grass grow.
752 - Canada - Saint John New Brunswick 45.266°N 66.066°W
It's sad seeing that empty lawn but I'll keep the happy memories spent enjoying your lights this past year...thanks again so much Alek.

Per Blog post #731, it was takedown day ... and for those that missed the action, here's a time-lapse animation of the front yard ... and what you see below in the back yard (next to the basement stairwell) is only part of the pile of Christmas Stuff! ;-)
754 - Canada - Spruce Grove Alberta 53.533°N 113.916°W

757 - United States - Swartz Creek Michigan 42.942°N 83.827°W
Key Alek, I got a question for you.. Do you put both the Halloween stuff and the Christmas stuff in the basement??
Everything is stored in the basement crawlspace - here's what it looks like right now! I hope to put it all away in the next couple of days. Speaking of that, a reminder that I'll be shutting down the blog for comments this week as Christmas 2008 is over.

Man, this time of year is always the most depressing since it's cold, dark, and holiday-less until spring and even when spring comes, here in Illinois it remains cold until the beginning of May! Oh well, two months until baseball spring training and "only" 11 months until the holiday season returns. Happy 2009!

I am not happy with cold days and I wish it would stay light out longer. I am looking forward to spring and your Christmas lights in 2009.

Any final stats for the year Alek? most visitors at one time, etc? Number of times you guys have had free KFC so far ? :)
There is a composite snapshot of what the christmas webcam page looked like in 2008 - from the raw data, max number of viewers was 4,132 on Christmas Eve - lotta eyes looking for Santa! We've only had KFC once, but have already given away a 1/3 of the coupons.
