With the annual Christmas Pageant this weekend, Santa is back in town which means the 2014 Christmas season has begun. This also means set up for the 2014 should have started – and there’s no need to panic, because setup is underway.
A belated Happy New Year for 2014! Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2013 has now well and truly concluded and pack up has begun. The final three videos of Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2013 are now live online to view. They are:
- He’s a Pirate (Pirates of the Caribbean) by Klaus Badelt;
- Amazing Grace by Yule; and
- Greensleeves (What Child Is This?) by 00.52.
Don’t forget to check out 2013’s new song, Christmas Eve Sarajevo, if if you haven’t had a chance yet. Christmas Eve Sarajevo is a rocky blend of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and Carol of the Bells.
At long last, photo and video footage of Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2013 is beginning to be uploaded online for all to view. The first video to be published is Christmas Eve/Sarajevo (God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen/Carol of the Bells) by Trans-Siberian Orchestra – a brand new sequence for 2013.
At time of posting there are also a total of 5 photos available in the 2013 photo gallery.
With yesterday being December 1, Ryan’s Christmas Lights is now operating for 2013, with the initial switch on happening last night. After doubts that the evening might have been wet, the weather cleared up in time that there wasn’t a problem.
This year the website has received a major overhaul with a brand new more modern looking layout, powered by WordPress, a content management system.
There has been uncertainty over whether there would be a Christmas display this year, which is why there have been no updates to the website news until now. An incident occurred earlier this year, which led to questions of whether it was worth continuing doing a Christmas lights display. There will be a display, but read on for details on the incident.
It is nearly 2013 this New Years Eve, that means once again it is the end for Ryan’s Christmas Lights for the year. The tear down stage is next on the schedule, but it is never has interesting as the decorating stage in October/November. Happy New Year!
The big day has arrived, may it be filled with happiness and family fun.
Just in time to go along with the festivities, the last of this year’s display videos are now online for your viewing pleasure.
Merry Christmas to all!
Apologies to anyone who came past tonight, who saw a dark house! There were gremlins in the control system and due to other festive events I was not able to fix it during the show time. But now all looks set once again so the display will be back on as planned from tomorrow (Monday) at 8:30 pm.
