Category 1:  William  Zeek

William  Zeek of Brownsboro, Alabama, United States.  I am 16 years old and I have been decorating for as long as I can remember. Each year the display has grown more and more. It is a mostly static display that features classic red, green, and white lights. Traditional C9 red and green lights anchor the corners and outline the landscape perimeter. Wire frame characters feature a Santa waving, a snowman waving, and a saluting soldier. Other wire frames include self-refurbished candy canes and modified trees. When looking at the star atop the house, “Star of Bethlehem” is directly on the North  coordinate. The front right arch window features a video animated life like Santa in the window using a rear projection system.  An eye catching decorated tree with glowing Moravian Stars and starlight spheres captures your attention as you drive towards the house. As viewers are exiting they see the familiar characters of Charley Brown, Snoopy, and Lucy around a Christmas tree. I am hoping this entry will help me take my lights to the next level. If I win, I plan to utilize the light-o-rama system to create leaping arches, mega/spiral trees, and much more to enhance my display.   See how it’s done at Light-O-Rama. http://www.lightorama.com

Category 3:  Marc-Anthony Worosilo

Marc-Anthony Worosilo of Lewes, DE, United States.  This is our second year doing an animated display using LOR controllers. Previously it was static. We have over 25,000 LED lights. We added a “virtual Santa” this year in the window above the garage that you can see if you look at the video carefully. Our show consisted of 13 songs and ran half an hour before repeating. We use a LOR 1602W with a DC-MP3 as the main controller.  We really like putting the program on a SD memory card and thus avoiding the sometimes unpredictable PC behavior. We broadcast the audio on a low power FM transmitter so that people in their cars can tune in and listen to the program.   See how it’s done at Light-O-Rama.  http://www.lightorama.com

Category 4:  John Krause

John Krause of Grand Junction, Colorado, United States.  This is my first year using Light-O-Rama equipment and software, my very understanding wife and I enjoy Pentatonix and decided to put some of their Christmas music in action. Dance of the sugar plum fairy was a fun song to synchronize and I hope everyone enjoys it.   See how it’s done at Light-O-Rama. http://www.lightorama.com
