Looks good guys.
Still working on my outdoor ones and hope to be complete by this weekend. I have wrapped 14 of my 40 something king palm trunks with over 6,000 led lights and they are connected to a little light show deal and it is actually is pretty cool. The little speaker box didn't cut it for sound so I installed a 3.5mm mini jack and have plugged in my soundbar with sub-woofer and now it fits the bill. I'll get some video posted this weekend.

Would love to see a pic or vid of that.

With working from home, we have spent most of the past year at the lake house (LOTO). I couldn't really bring down all the Xmas decorations, but I did wrap some lights on the deck railing. With all the furniture put away for winter it helped the the deck look a little better. The blue lights are dock lights across the cove.

If there were going to be any kids, our's or our grandkids, with us this Christmas I'd try to light our home up like the English Village. After this last year we all deserve it. I recently saw where the Newport Beach Boat Parade of Lights was cancelled. That may be the official parade. But, there's not a damn thing stopping the Newport home owner's from putting total knock out decorations on their homes and boats. Even their local massive fleet of Duffy's can be impressively decorated. Hope it turns out great. After one time being cancelled, I sincerely applaud our local LHC boat owners who have entered our Boat Parade. Let's do our best to support and attend our local parade. Dress warm and enjoy!

Yeah, it definitely sucks. I work all over Newport Beach/harbor and I heard some underground gossip that some owners are putting on a parade anyways.

Yes, I saw the replacement Parade openly posted. Believe it was a upcoming Friday and Saturday. Truthfully, I've been on many NPB Christmas Boat Parades. Outside in the open air is fine. But, due to cool weather, huddled up at the windows of a local restaurant or huddled in the salon of a beautifully decorated yacht is probably not prudent at this time. The financial impact on the local charter companies, caterers etc will be considerable.

This is our back patio in our apartment. I still need to do a few strings around the front door. And windows and such. Built a little shelf to sit on top of the patio wall for the inflatables to sit on and to attach the net lights to. Have gotten several compliments from neighbors appreciating the lights.

Disclaimer - Not my house, it's a house I pass on my morning walks...!!! I think this was the most the homeowner ever did, it's usually limited to the single string of garland draped over the garage light, but he really above and beyond last year. I will update if and when he unveils the 2020 Christmas Spectacular!!!

Live Long and Prosper.

Ya'll are just plain overboard with this. Thought I was doing good putting a colored bulb in BOTH the front and side fixtures.

I wish I had pictures of my parents house I used to do every year by myself. I made 8' tall caddy canes and all. It was so done up that we had people stop by the house almost every year and ask to take their Christmas card pictures in front of it.
