Exotic Ideas Anyone?

Recommended Posts

Well I'm in competition with a near by neighbor and he doesn't have much impressive stuff besides a neat set up and maybe a 7 ft tree. He has 2 controllers (like me) and over 30k lights (like me also). However, this year I have already built a 9ft and 14ft mega tree along with 2 arches that are 5ft tall, about 12-15ft across the base. I also bought 46 more strands of lights (for the mega trees and arches) and a few strands to place vertically down the side of the house alternating red and white and channels 1-8. I'm doing my street pole in white and green this year instead of just white and I also added a few pre-lit spiral trees along with some mini trees. Basically I want to know is this really enough to beat him this year or what is the secret weapon I need against him? Anybody have some exotic ideas to share?

Thanks for any help!

Back a couple years ago when I first started getting interested in doing this. I saw a video and maybe someone can point you to it. Someone had a mast going up and then a long pole horizontal with a weight on one end and a sliegh with Santa and reindeer at the other end. There was a motor to turn this all and power was ran out to the sliegh and reindeer to light them up. That would put you over the top with the guy down the street.

George has a great idea.Just make sure you make a tounge so you can light it up facing your neighbors house :(

George, that reminds me. I once saw this picture of an entire lit up house and the house next to it said 'Ditto' on the roof with an arrow pointing, lol.

Richard Holdman also had a neighbor that did something similar so he youtube'd it:
