We put up the Halloween lights over the weekend and I was reflecting that these timers really help make it an easy and no fuss set up.
It turns everything on at sundown and stays on as many hours as you specify. You can also just leave in on dusk to dawn or simply on or off for debugging.
It’s really nice enjoy your own lights if you come home after dark plus I feel better about using the energy since I minimize it by only having on for a few hours each night.

Okay, I’m a week late but my computers were all dead. These Christmas Lights are pretty inspirational for December 2006.
Noodling around the Net it looks like Carson Williams of Mason, Ohio is the creator of the lights. The Music is track 4 of “The Lost Christmas Eve” (Trans-Siberian Orchestra). Further, the crowds coming to watch the show were so big that, after a minor car accident the lights were turned off. Notes on how this was done are here.
How to do it without causing a dangerous situation though?
It’s an illness but I love funky, so bad it’s good, old music. Christmas carols included. Given this I”m very happy to see that Falalalala.com is counting down the days to Christmas with a great track for download every day starting today: ADVENTure in Carols again this year.
In addition to the track a day Falalalala.com tracks all kinds of great old, otherwise unavailable, christmas songs.
PS I also love online advent calendars!
