Christmasville Is Lit Up!


Recommended Posts

Well, almost lit up.  I've got my yard completely set up and lit.  I set up my choir and nativity in my parents' front yard, but I haven't got it wired up yet (ran out of time this weekend).

"I was trying for 400 this year, but only got to about 370 in the two yards."    

 

Hey Robcat there is still time and I see some places for more molds lol   

 

Actually, I've got enough molds (I had some left over, and I found a box in my storage shed with another bunch of candles), BUT I'm getting close to my limit on power - the last few molds I plugged in one by one with my fingers crossed.  I never got around to adding any more circuits this year.  The bad part is that I already have an external 60 amp box feeding my pool deck that has an unused breaker slot that I could have used.  There's always next year.

I switched all my molds to 11 watt bulbs this year and they looked fine go look at my display and see what you think..i put up a bunch of pics the other day in the post that says my display 2013 Im not sure what size you use but if your close to being at your limit then go down in wattage size if you can and then you can add a bunch more lolol we all love more lol

Thanks.  The cones are actually banks that I drilled holes in for lights (one for the cone, one for the ice cream).  Don't get chocolate - the light won't shine through

Really cute display. I like the arches too. The big ornaments are really pretty.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the coke scene. Sadly I didn't get to put my coke tree out this year. I use the same bears + a santa & mrs claus in mine. I also used a fake tree & had the coke pathway lights in the tree. Can you post a close up of the sitting bears so I can see it better? If you would like to see what my coke tree looked like let me know & I will post a pic of it.
