Well guys just a short update. We have been dark last year and this year. Been some issues where we haven’t been able to put the lights up where we live as we rent so again there will be no pics this year. We hope you all have a Merry Christmas and hope we can be back next year!

We just added some pictures of our 2014 display and we hope you enjoy them.

Christmas 2014

We just uploaded our Video for 2014. I hope you enjoy.



The time has come, in less than 10 hours the lights will come back on for the 2014 Christmas Season. We have a few new additions some come and enjoy. Pictures to follow.

As you might have notice it has been quiet around here and if you have passed along the street it has been dark.

Due to personal reasons we have decided to take a break for the 2013 Season and there will be no lights this year. But we plan on being back bigger and better for the 2014 Season!

I finally wrote a tutorial on how to convert the light strings to run on 220V. You can find it in our new How To section of the site.

Converting Light Strings


Well we just got two new additions. We got these two 18″ Grand Venture Snowmen last week. They are in pretty good shape, a few paint chips but not too shabby. Stamped 1999 so they have already seen a few Christmases and will get to see a few more 🙂

They will need to be fitted with a new light cord that is on my To-Do list for later this week.

Well since we got the new light strings set from the USA they are made to run on 110V. As most of you know here in Europe we run on 220V. The good thing about the USA lights is, that the wires used in them can withstand 300V so by making the 100 lights run in series instead of 50 and 50 I can then hook them up directly to our 220V without frying them out. Another added benefit to that is, that I can hook 5 strings together instead of only 3 like in the USA.

So for me that means cutting, stripping, and soldering 60 sets of lights. But what is a balcony for, right?


Well we just got some new lights for this year. Another 60 sets of multi colored lights to be exact, so that is another 6000 bulbs we get to enjoy. Thanks to Indytycoon over at Planetchristmas for helping us get them from the US over here 🙂
