Blue Spruce Christmas 2023

Welcome to the 2023 Light Show Website
our 10 Year Anniversary

What's New
  • Five New Songs
    Ode To Joy to the World - The Piano Guys
    God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen - Lindsey Stirling
    Abraham Lincoln Tribute - The Piano Guys
    Angel's From The Realms of Glory - The Piano Guys
    Song #5 - SandStorm - Durade - This isn't a Christmas song but we couldn't resist the temptation to do a light show with it. It's amazing! My brother Bobby who is much more musically talented then I did the sequencing for this one. Enjoy!

  • Two new 10 foot tall giant stars each with 800 red, green, blue and white lights and 200 blue and white strobe lights.

  • Ten new Starburst displays in five new colors, red, green, blue, bright white and soft white.

  • For the past few years we have chosen one patriotic song for the show. In the past we have honored our Military, Veterans and First Responders with Jim Brickman's "Christmas Where You Are". This year we have chosen The Piano Guys "Abraham Lincoln Tribute" which is a great compilation of iconic patriotic songs. We hope you will enjoy it. Check out Jim Brickman's "Christmas Where You Are" from last year if you missed it.

    A special thanks this year to my brother, Bobby, for his help getting the new website programmed and for sequencing a new musical score for this years show. I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you!

    Once again I'd like to give a special word of thanks to our next door neighbors who have gratiously allowed us to expand into their yard again this year so we can spread out and make the show more exciting for you. Thanks Karl and Susan!

Original Sign
Original Hand Made Sign Controller circa 1940

Our venture into automated christmas lights started back in 2013.

While cleaning out the attic at my parents home I found an old Christmas display that was built by my dad when he was a teenager. It was a hand made box about four feet long with individual lighted cells.

He then hand painted glass inserts for each cell that spelled out "MERRY CHRISTMAS" and by changing the glass inserts after Christmas he could spell "HAPPY NEW YEAR".

The lights were "automated" (see picture) with a small motor and a series of cams and switches to turn on each letter in sequence and then flash the entire message three times before starting over again.

I spent many hours refurbishing the sign and repainting the letters but I was never able to get the little timer motor to work again. My brother suggested I connect the bulbs to a Light-O-Rama controller to get the same effect. I took his advice, bought two controllers and automated the sign and a few other Christmas lights and the first show in 2013 was born.

Since then I have added lights and controllers and upgraded software each year until now I have approximately 50,000 lights and over 700 channels of control. Some light features can do over 16 million colors to create dazzling displays. I hope you enjoy the show.
