    I usually try for 1st of December, but seeing that's a Monday, I may have some of it running on the weekend prior.

    I think for a lot of us, the turn on will be when everything's working!

    Cool, that's when I thought most people do it.


    Mind you I have spend all my spare time since Jan creating props and building lights to sequence and now I find out I will not even be here for Christmas. I leave on the 22 Dec so will need to take it all down before then.


    Based on that I may have to set them up early.

    I have been struggling with this myself. At the end I decided to go with 30 nov as it is a Sunday night.
    I figure I will be spending that whole weekend on the finishing touches and won't be able to wait any longer :D
    I too am going to be away in December, but have luckily been able to put it off until boxing day, so I can breath easy as being in a country town, there will be very little interest after Christmas 8)

    Mine will officially be on the 1st but hoping for a preview show to be running on the weekend before.
    I have already seen about a dozen houses around my area that already have lights on. I started today with most of the lights on the roof.
