Every year when we do our Christmas display, I literally wrap the house in Christmas lights (you can see what I mean by going to www.thathouseinmilford.com )

I have approximately 10,000 lights on the roof and about 2,500 lights on the siding along with the icicle lights.

This year I wanted to try something different but I don't know if people are going to take it as a cop out (why not 60,000 lights...). I wanted to outline the roof and the house in multi colors along with all the windows and put the 3 foot snowflakes on the roof instead of the 13,000 lights I normally put up. What do you think? Do you think I'm coping out by not putting as many lights up or do you think it'll be a good change and see what everyone thinks?

Let me know.

I think it is your display and you should do what you want to do. Change is good. I admit I like the lights covering the roof and the way you have it set up in the pictures on your webpage but in the end it is your display and I think you should do what you want. People will ask you what happended to the lights on the roof I am sure, but in the end they will enjoy the display regardless.

BTW: I enjoyed your book.

I change my show every year to some degree. I add new props and more lights. This year I have eliminated the lights on the roof and have added 15 snow flakes of various sizes and some bells. I have converted everything to led this year using M5 and led strips. I make different size snow flakes and arrange them across the roof each on a channel of their own. Who knows what is coming for next year. I am not that far into the thinking yet.
