Preparations Underway

This weekend marks the beginning of the official assembly for Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2006. All major cabling have been installed for the season! The computer soundtrack has also been entirely completed ready for this year. The display’s address will be published closure to the date, so keep clicking back!

Ryans Christmas Lights 2006 Completeness – 1000/6100 lights.

Money, Money, Money

In the next month or so I’ll need to spend about $200 on Bright LED lighting for the roof and some of the garden – I have decided that I should start making the move to full LED, as the reliability and lifespan of these products is much higher, with the electricity costs lower. I’ll need to get two sets that are 8 metres long ($25) and three sets that are 10 metres long ($35 each).

Season Finale: 2005

Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2005 is now finishing up. Special Effects (Bubbles, Fog) have been taken down, and Santa’s inflatable sleigh has been deflated and stored back in the box. Be prepared for new things in 2006 – check out the 2006 Photo Gallery page for a sneak preview of what will be out there!! Finally, a completely new soundtrack will be created for next year, along with a completely new light sequence for the computer controlled light sets. I hope you all had a very merry Christmas!

Prime Publicity

Ryan’s Christmas Lights 2005 has had quite a bit of publicity this month: From the Messenger and Advertiser Newspapers, to FIVEaa Talkback Radio and Seven News. I would like to thank everybody involved in organising this publicity – from the staff of the media companies to the members of the community.
