Okay, on the forums and at places like Christmas Expo, I hear folks grousing about how they don't like/are tired of Wizards In Winter. I'm going on limb here, but I Like It! I am not tired of it. And I think the folks who come to your shows like it too. I've liked it since I first saw Carson's video and and like seeing all of the different interpretations of it. SO . . . I was thinking that it might be cool to have one place to post videos of just Wizards In Winter. It would certainly be entertaining for me, and hopefully others; and it might serve as sort of a reference point of ideas for those just just getting started in the madness. So, please post your video of YOUR Wizards In Winter! I/we would love to see it!

I held out a year before adding it to my show. And even though I have RGB strings as well as white, the first song in my sequence didn't expose the colors until a minute into the song. So, I decided to do WIW using only white for the entire sequence. It comes first in the show loop now. So, anyone who comes during the beginning of the show get an even bigger surprise when the second song is running and they get blasted with the first all-color transition at the 1:20 mark in O Come All Ye Faithful / O Holy Night:

It is one of the most popular tunes of the season. Yes a lot of people have done it, but have you? Remember, we do our displays for our local area. Just because a guy is Florida did something doesn.t mean that I in NH can't. If that was the case no one would have a mega tree, arches, etc. I also have held out as I didn't have the right pieces in the display. This year I added 4 arches and a mega tree.

Totally agree! When Wizards became popular; i didn't have the means or the money to do a musical show. Now that I do; I'm doing it regardless of how "over used it is".

I have said the same thing, "how many of my neighbors have seen a lighting display like that?" Probably not many.

Personally, after listening to every song or bits of it 5 BILLION Times I got sick of a lot of my Favourites! Sequencing is done, and after Halloween display comes down and Christmas goes up, I am sure I will find new pleasure in the music again as they come to life in my yard.

Or.......if Halloween Blows Chunks.....I will be the one hanging next to the skeleton.... LoL

This is my video from 2010 and 32 channels. I am still going to do Wizards in 2011, but as part of a TSO only show running a few days a week. For some reason, so many of the songs by TSO contain the beat, building and action that lend themselves so well to sequencing.
