My Hanukkah Display

Recommended Posts

Yes, you read that correctly, Hanukkah. I am aware it's a little untraditional. After a talk with my Rabbi I got the OK that it's Kosher. I am aware of one other Jewish LOR forum member, if anyone else has done a Hanukkah display please let me know.

It's my first year with LOR, my 2nd with lights in general. This year I am at 3000 Lights and 16 channels. I have 2 songs that I sequenced and 3 others that are modified from ones I found here on the forums and other sites. A huge thank you to all the forum members who post here. Without your collective knowledge I would have never gotten this done. From making my own SPT-2 power cords to Sequencing 101 it has been an adventure. As I get more of my show videos edited I will post them here.

First up we have the Monday Night Football Theme, It's my first sequence ever. I read on the forums to pick something with a strong beat and short. I would have to say that's great advice.

if anyone would like it just post here and I will e-mail it out.

As far as I know, you're the first with that song, great idea. You're off to a great start and welcome to the madness! :)

Second Video is Online!
Wizards in Winter by Trans-Siberian Orchestra. This sequence was created by Light-O-Rama and I adapted it to my show. I think It really shows off the power of the system. I'm working to be able to sequence this well on my own. It's hard to have a light display and not include this song.

Nice display.
After all Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights. I would call these lights... and that is a Festive use of them.;)

I also have a Hanukkah display and have the same bear as you! I am Christian, and do a Christmas display as well, but also run Hanukkah songs for my neighbors. Here are my last year videos:

Do you only run the display during Hanukkah? Hanukkah is pretty late this year...

Awesome, I love the stars and the bear!
I'm working on Candlelight by The Maccabeats, not sure if I am going to have it finished for this year or not, but definitely for next year.

Bob: I run the lights from thanksgiving to Hanukkah or the end of December whichever is later.

Jim: That song is the TOP of my list for next year. I'm also expanding from 16 to 48 channels.

Good to see our fellow Jews representing! :P I also pre-checked with my Rabbi and he also gave the thumbs up, I mean, it is the celebration of light, and what better way to do so then to have a great show!

I am planning for next year as i am making a animated snow man with talking face and just didn't have the time nor the additional controller to do so this year.

I have already spoke with the Manager for The Maccabeats and was given the thumbs up for permission to use their song and sqeuence the face to sing as I did so in the halloween shows. I already have completed the sequence for the mouth movements and part of the song itself.



But good to see us out :D

So that makes 3 of us that are looking at sequencing that song. Is there any good way to collaborate on sequencing?

The wind here hit 40mph last night, at first we just deflated the bear and put bricks on him, when we the guts kicked up I shut down the whole show for the night and dragged the bear inside.

Almost done with prep and I have a good chunk of 2012 sequenced. Adding 32 more channels and 2000+ lights this year.

Big thanks to the LoR community for all their help this past year.

I have a Jewish friend that wants a song in my display. Can anyone donate a Jewish song? I would post on youtube as well.

Be careful; I had to remove a song at the request of a Jewish fellow who complained about the reference to Hanukkah in this song, purchased from Holidaycoro.com :

I had wanted to have a Hanukkah related song in my Christmas display this year, but ran out of time. I want to use the Maccabeats "Candlelight" and will have it in next year's display.
