Christmas 2013 at the Hormann's
2013 was our thirteenth year for an animated Christmas display. No major changes from 2012 were made. We did add some strobe lights that go off when the countdown clock hits zero. After over a decade of service, the snowmen
required major repair. The rope lighting that makes up the bodies of both snowmen failed just after we finished setting them up. This wasn't nearly as bad as the wind damage of 2004 that snapped the support piping, but was interesting to see that both strands failed at exactly the same time.
For the last 8 years or so, a small (but growing) group of neighbors have
braved the cold to watch the clock hit mid-night and welcome Christmas.
This year, we had 22 neighbors come and watch the clock hit zero. You can hear them belt out the last 10 seconds at the top of their lungs in the video below.
Our display is located at 6656 Devon Drive in Liberty Township, OH near a number of other enjoyable holiday displays.
