How It Started
I started with a string or two of lights on the house for the holidays after my kids were born. Each year I added another element or two to the static display. My initial motivation came from my son, as he was always fascinated by our holiday lights and kept wanting me to put more lights up. In 2009, I added more static elements and an inflatable Santa Clause flying a helicopter on the roof.
