We have somewhere around 20,000 lights, but hard to estimate since we use mostly RGB strips (smart and dumb). There are also 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.

We have 4 projectors running a projection mapping show on one side of the house synchronized to the lights on the other side of the house. This year we are using the songs 2001 Space Oddity, Heatmiser, and Carol of the Bells. We try to make it a unique display with elements of humor.

Very original with the projectors. I have never seen anything like this.
