2016 is our sixteenth year for an animated Christmas display. This year there were a number of new additions. The biggest was the addtion of the 12 foot tall RGB pixel tree to the left of the house. We also added six arches in the front of the display and outlined the house in RGB pixels. Finally, we used this year to add a radio station and synchronize the lights to the music. Behind the scenes, we converted from a custom software to leveraging the open source program Xlights for creating the display. Rather than tying up a PC to control the lights during the show, we are leveraging the Falcon Player running on a Raspberry Pi to control all the E1.31 and DMX controllers in the yard.

For the last eleven years or so, a number of neighbors have braved the cold to watch the clock hit midnight and welcome Christmas. This year was amazing with over 48 neighbors joining to celebrate as the clock hit zero. Hopefully you'll join us next year!
