This year we added a Mrs. Claus talking head. The talking Santa and Mrs. Claus figures are synchronized with the custom animated characters being projected on the side of the house. One side of the house is a projector synchronized to the lights on the other side of the house. We have moving spot lights, RGB LED strips on the house, Santa in the window, Grinch in the window, Santa’s workshop in the garage, inflatables and various other decorations. The snow machine runs Fri – Sun and on holidays.
The songs for this year are:
Believe (Polar Express)
Santa and Mrs. Clause talking #1
I am Santa Clause (Iron Man parody complete with some custom Iron Santa animations on the side of the house)
Santa and Mrs. Clause talking #2
Muppets Carol of the Bells
Don’t forget to get your ticket and bell from the North Pole mailbox at the end of the driveway and tune to 106.9! Shows generally run between 7-10 PM and last about 10 minutes from start to end. Usually everything is running earlier and later on weekends and holidays.
We have somewhere around 20,000 lights, but hard to estimate since we use mostly RGB strips (smart and dumb). There are also 3-4 projectors running a projection mapping show synchronized to the light show and window rear projections. We also have 7-9 inflatables (some large) and a snow machine. The snow machine will run on weekends and on holidays when it's not snowing. Tall inflatables will not run on windy days. We also make some of our own bad animations to use in the projection mappings (it's fun). It takes a while to setup every night, but usually it's done way before 7 PM. However, the official time is 7 PM.

The projection mapping is on the court side of the house. Tune to 106.9
Very original with the projectors. I have never seen anything like this.
