Although it’s only December 2nd, I just wanted to remind everyone that once again, we are an official drop off location for Toys for Tots. All toys collected go to local Fox Valley children. A hearty thanks to all who can donate. Also, don’t forget to pickup your “I Believe Bell” from our container on our Toys for Tots collection bin. Merry Christmas everyone!
Lights will be on starting tonight (Saturday) through New Years Eve, from 5pm – 10pm. Don’t forget we are a Toys for Tots drop off location and all toys go to local children in need. Also, be sure to take your “I Believe Bell” from our container in the driveway. Merry Christmas everyone!
Tonight will be the last night of lights for the display. Some take down will begin today, but January 1 always is the start of a multi day process and hopefully the weather cooperates. Thank you to everyone who donated this year to Toys for Tots as once again, you brought a little happiness to many local kids. I hope we brought a little Christmas spirit to everyone and hopefully, we will be back next year. Happy New Year everyone!
Merry Christmas! Thanks to everyone who donated toys this year. Once again, we received hundreds of toys that Toys for Tots used for local children. Today will be a happier Christmas for many kids because of your generosity.
Well, the third weekend in a row with nasty weather (cold, more snow), but for those that venture out, we are still collecting toys and have plenty of bells to give out plus we will promise you lots of lights and music. For those that don’t venture out, you can always watch on the live video stream Have a great weekend!
Looks like our second major storm of the season is arriving. Bored? Try watching our live video of the display and weather: Live Streaming Video
Merry Christmas everyone! The display is on from 5pm-10pm, weather permitting through New Years Eve. Once again we are a drop off location for Toys for Tots and we have a supply of “I Believe Bells” available. Live video can be found here for those watching from around the world.
Merry Christmas! The display is about 95% complete, but ready to go. Lights will be on from 5pm-10pm, weather permitting, through New Years Eve. Live video and audio can be found here: Live Video
Happy day after Thanksgiving! I’m in the home stretch and hopefully all will be complete by Sunday. If you drive by Saturday, you might see some testing, but not everything will be ready. Webcam will be operational also on Sunday. Have a great weekend everyone!
Much has happened since last Christmas. I am a proud new Grandfather, the Cubs won the World Series and the country elected a new President. So, to celebrate at least 2 of the 3, I’ll give the display at least another year. This year represents some key milestones:
- 20th year for the display in our current home
- 15th year for having a display synchronized to music
- 13th year for collecting for Toys for Tots
Look for light around November 26th. Live webcams again also. You can follow us on Facebook (TwasTheNightBefore) or on Instagram (twas.the.night.before).
Hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!
