Final Thoughts

Ok, so I'm a month late. Let's recap.
What took two weeks to setup, only took 8hrs to take down. All the lights and cables fit nicely into these five containers. The response I received on my display, although lighter than I expected, was all positive. I had my website up on the sign and several people in my neighborhood actually sent me emails. Some to ask questions about how this was done or what was that song, but all were complements. Thank you. If any of my neighbors weren't happy with my house, they didn't say anything. I even had the opportunity to meet several new people. Oh, and one last accolade. I won "Most Elaborate" display in the municipal district!

The after Christmas sales weren't as productive as last year though. Target sold out of their mini lights early, but I was able to get my hands on couple thousand clear. My next challenge is to plan for next year. My goal is to have 20,000 lights in my 2007 display. I'm even toying with the idea of connecting in my next door neighbors house into the show. Only 316 days to Christmas...
