Our display is animated with computer controlled lights set to music, and is set up so you can see different things from many different angles. The best way to experience the display, of course, is in person. The second-best way is to watch videos. We have videos of three of the thirteen musical selections we used for the 2013 seasons:
We Need A Little Christmas by Johnny Mathis:
Hark the Herald Angels Sing, from March of the Kings by Trans-Siberian Orchestra:
Greensleeves (00.52 version) by 00.52:
We have have these pictures of the 2013 display, taken with most of the lights on:
The Peanuts Nativity Pageant display takes it's usual place in front of the house. New for 2013 was LED spotlighting throughout this display, part of our effort to move to all LED lighting nearly exclusively. The large star on the front of the house, part of our display since we moved here in 2002, was also redone with LED lighting, as was the Remember Jesus sign.
Our "big new item" for 2013 was our "Magic Matrix" display, and it really is big. This is an array of 10 poles, each 10' high and spaced out a total of about 15 feet wide, along the back of our Toyland section of the display. Normally these poles are off, and fairly invisible, allowing you to see the trees and display items behind them. But at certain points in the various songs, they come on and can do a wide variety of visual effects, from colored patterns, scrolling bars, VU meter effects, even scrolling huge messages. Here's some pictures of it doing a few different effects:
Toyland also got some other improvements, including new LED lighting in the two large trees flanking the Merry Christmas sign. Our pixel Mega-Tree, which was new in 2012, continues to add a lot of visual interest to the display with the many effects it can perform.
Singing Tree loves to entertain guests...
