Display turn on day

Just thought I would throw this out and see when everyone is planning to turn there display on, or whether you are on now?I usually wait until the Friday or Saturday following Thanksgiving day. But with Thanksgiving a week late this year, I was curious what everybody was doing. I am almost thinking I will go live Wednesday night. I am running static tonight just to see if everything lit up for a couple of hours.

I've always turned the lights on Thanksgiving night.  But this year we will be at the Brother-N-Laws, so I will turn them on the 29th, just in case there are any gremlins that decide to show up.

Friday after Thanksgiving at 7:00. Having some family and friends over to watch. I have a secret light up sequence almost finished. Tried it out about 5 this morning and except for the 15 seconds I still need to sequence, it looked pretty good.

Normally my wife doesn't let me turn it on until Dec 1. We're turning the show on for the first time this friday night and having about 30 people over to see if for the first time.

I decided to go live tonight instead of last night. Had them on again in static mode last night for a couple of hours to see if all my 40 + remade led strings would survive. All looks ok and I didn't see anything smoking.

Happy thanksgiving to everyone.

 

Thanks for all of the reply's. It is neat to see what everyone plans for.

Did a "soft launch" last night to identify any technology or sequencing issues.  Found both.  Fixed both.  

 

Put out the Tune To sign this morning and now we're ready to go.

 

Good luck to everyone on a bright and problem-free season.

Tonight's the big night for me.  I don't know if I'm more excited or nervous.  This is my first year with LOR so the surprise potential problems will be actual surprises.  I've been playing the show during the middle of the day for the past 2 days testing to see if anything goes wrong.  So far just a couple strands half out that were easily fixed.  I've invited the whole neighborhood out to see the grand lighting.  Wish me luck.

Good luck.. You can expect far more cars the second year then the first.. but if you are in a well traveled area the word will travel fast.

Was going to light up tomorrow but had most everything done so we went live Thanksgiving night. So far I've watched our lights for about 3hrs. :D Good God I love Christmas lights!

Sorry for interrupting this topic but I wanted to raise a new forum topic but simply can't find out how. Could someone please help me out? Thanks

On my screen it is on the right side and just above the second bar down from the top. Box says START NEW TOPIC. Make sure you are in whatever forum section you want to post in before hitting the new topic box.
