I'm a bit dissapointed that you would make such a sweeping statement after just knowing one song out of 3.5 hours of music. I have 5 songs that are about Christmas for every 1 that isn't.

I include something for everybody to enjoy (That's the point isn't it?), if that offends or upsets anybody, I'm sorry you feel that way. If you actually looked at my play list you would see there is a healthy mix of everything. It's just Christmas lights. I think some of you are taking this far too seriously. Nobody is going to hell because they played a non Christmas song in a Christmas light show.

In a bit of defense to PSY's side. I would be pretty upset too if two of my innocent female friends were killed by a foreign millitary. So I can see why he was a little upset with us, I think I would be a bit vengefull in that situation too.

Seems to me that our service men were in South Korea defending their freedom during the Korean war, if not for them, there would probably be no gangnam style.

If our service men harmed his his friends, his anger should be at those individuals, not the entire military. I'm with Max and Tom on this one.

Evil,

Know what I like about liberals, not very much. First in my above post, I stated my opinion. Did I say I was going to come to your display and burn a cross in it? So, please dont try to blow things up from an ant hill to a mountain. Gee cause I am not a liberal, does this mean I dont have the right to an opinion? I dont have the right to voice that opinion. Dont try to make me into something that I am not. Next thing I know, you will have me painted as some homicidal machining gun wielding freak that will gun down people in front of your house listening to non-christian Christmas music. And not fully knowing what happened with those two girls. Gee did they step off of a curb into the on coming path of the vehicle? Or where the service men drunk and driving? You dont know, I dont know. But for someone to spew hate for our country men and women over their risking their lives so that they can be free. Well that just does not go well with me. And Frankly what kind of American are you to lean towards someone like psy has me baffled.

Oh and BTW why after a decade (or there about) would psy now issue an appology? Why Obama does not want any of his dirt rubbing off. Seems that psy will be doing the White House charity bash that Obama and family will attend. Kind of like how Obama distanced himself from that preacher back a few years ago. Ya you know the one. The one that has problems with Whitey, Cracker, Honkey and so on.

Might be because I don't think we have any business in other countries enforcing Democracy at gunpoint. But that's not a subject for this forum...

I personally wouldnt use non christmas music. But thats me. I say as well to each their own. If someone wants to deal with the headache of tons of traffic after they run to the news- thats on them. I do not like Psy.

I think if I farted the national anthem I would be a youtube sensation. Thats how rediculous I think this guy is. And now people are finding out he is anti american.

As far as the decorations go I try to keep it to the lights but my 2 kids have a say on what gets bought every year.. :D So i do have a singing giraffe ( kids love giraffes) and a couple siberian huskies and dog sled. But music is all christmas. I do run a few non christmas after christmas for the new year show. Thats what i think. But like I said to each their own.

So please can we all just agree to disagree. This is America where we are all allowed our opinions and are all allowed to decorate whatever way makes us happy. :D I hope in no way did I offend anyone. But hey I realize you cant please everyone.

Just noticed another airblown at Home Depot that I somehow missed before.

This one has Santa in a deer stand.... That is wrong on so many levels. lol

Great posts in here... My 13-year old demanded we do Gangnam Style this year. It seemed so odd to me as I started sequencing it... but in the end it is the most popular song in our show. Many people wait to see it twice. I've seen four YouTube videos of my house created by others... so it's a real hit and causing quite the stir in my neighborhood.

Let's face it...we all create our shows to entertainment our visitors. I agree with many of the perspectives above, and while there are a few cars that drive away when that song starts (likely the older folks), there's at least 100 times that number who stay with big smiles on their faces. So I am officially a "convert" and support ainsworth's spot-on comment above: "Christmas lights to music" versus "Christmas music to lights"

:-)

Gulp.... ....nervous to ask.... but I have a National Anthem song in my Christmas display where everything and tree goes red white and blue. Can Christmas and Patriotism work together or is that too silly too?

I really like the idea of opening and closing my show with the National Anthem. But I have had so little time this year to sequence to my new display, that I only have three songs -- so I play the National Anthem continuously in the show until I get some more sequences made.... ...Maybe that'll help some people memorize the words! Ha!

On a side note, it is a symmetrical display so what is red white and blue to the right can look to be blue white and red on the left -- my wife pointed out that part of the display looks too French!! Ha!!!

The whole point of Christmas is like some others have said, supposed to be fun times with friends and family's. I mean the real story of Christmas has nothing to do with what others think... I mean hello!!! herding sheep in the middle of the winter, in a desert? I think they were more eating their sheep during that time and it was far from Dec. This was a Pagan holiday (Winter Solstice or Yule) that used to be a banned holiday in most states...but I wont go into depth on a history lesion here.

Point is, who cares what others use, if you want to use it, great, if not still great, don't bash them for it though...or think that those who do different things don't know the meaning of the holidays, hell T-rex wants some presents also...and if you remember the story Rudolf in the land of misfit toys, there was a t-rex there!

Well I do 95% Christmas music. I am using Bob's MIIP request software this year and put all my non Christmas music in the "vote in only" section. Guess what songs play more than most of the others, I Got A Feeling and Sandstorm. Teenagers seem to visit my display as much as any other group and they all have internet enabled cell phones.

Always heard "Action speaks louder than words" Psy's actions and songs against the U.S. is more believable than his "I'm sorry". Doesn't take much to say "sorry" when you know that being against the US could cut deeply into his earnings. As an ex military man that spent time in S.E. Asia, defending this country and then getting spat upon for it and getting the "support" of Jane Fonda, I don't take kindly to people going against my country. Off my soapbox now.

I agree with you about PSY and his apology.

I'm sorry that you and others in the armed forces were treated in that manner when you returned S.E. Asia. It is a terrible shame that some people do not respect the people who put their lives in danger to protect this country.

Thank you for helping to keep us safe!

Santa in a helicopter was created as a result of the members of the Gemmy Airblown club asking for it to be produced. I have thought it was a nod to the wireframes showing the same that have been around for years.

Gene Autry's "Santa' Coming in a Whirly Bird" is probably my most popular song, its been a hit with the kids for 7 straight years. They will get out of their cars and dance and sing "whirlybird" then wait while the adults enjoy the TSO, MAnnheim and other songs only to leap for joy again when "Whirly Bird" comes on.
