Merry Christmas, these are some photos of our 2009 light display we call Felix Family Lights!

Our home has become a Christmas landmark in our area. People from all around the metro Atlanta area come to see our house at Christmas. With so many visitors we also decided to collect donations for the American Cancer Society.

Our home has somewhere between 60-70,000 lights and the best part is most of the lights are computerized with music. We use a program called Light O Rama and currently have 136 individual channels.

This year we added several things to our display including the Grinch, Max, and Karen and we also added Felix the Cat made from Christmas Lights. He MC's the show.

As for The Grinch and Felix, they are made from something called corrugated plastic. I am sure you all have seen it, think election campaign signs. Here is a tip, collect those things after elections, find some pictures you like and project them on to the coro, draw them out. Then take a scratch awl (looks like a screwdriver but with a point) and poke holes through the coro. Grab some lights and slide them into the holes and you just made a character out of lights. We have made Felix the Cat, Elton John, and are working on a train.

Our display is quite large and it is hard to fit the entire display in the picture so please visit us on the web to see more pictures and video.

I love your Felix the Cat display! I was looking to make something Felix with lights this year or paint some plywood. Thanks for the ideas. You did a fantastic job! Everything else too... wow! How many lights did Felix take and how big is he?

I bring the family to your light show every year. We enjoy it and will come every year.

Thanks for all the kind remarks.
Julie Felix has about 10 strings I think, so about 1000 lights give or take. I found a picture online and traced it on a sheet of corrugated plastic (like an election sign). Then you poke holes in it with a scratch awl and push the lights though like a light bright.

non ho mai parlato di trasmettere informazioni indietro nel tempo, tra l'altro c'e' gia' gente che sembra farlo anche se per frazioni di secondoMagari ci fossero…

This "free sharing" of information seems too good to be true. Like communism.

You liked the Staake cover? I thought it was clever, but not typical of his work at least as we see it in the Post. He seems to be becoming one of their 'go-to' cover artists though.Inside, besides Richard, are 3 Obama caricatures by Blitt (no cover though!) and a Feiffer drawing.

Abordagem tradicional? Mas neste blog o tradicional não interessa para nada, o modelo sueco é que é bom. Se na Suecia se faz assim, assim é que é bom e não ha mais discussões.

all too good for me- you know how I lose cameras. what would be of interest to me is your services as a secondary retailer… I’ve been banned from ebay and I’ve never even used it! Long story, but boy I wish you lived closer so I could sell lots of stuff too.

It is not the missionary’s job to “covert.” The spirit does that. The missionary’s job, through persuasiona and long-suffering, is to teach people the gospel of Jesus Christ with conversion and baptism as the hopeful byproduct. I think it is perfectly honest to say “my job is not to convert you, but my job is to share with you the gospel of Jesus Christ and I hope that that will result in your conversion.”
