Happy New Year everyone! Tonight and tomorrow night (New Year’s Eve) will be the last nights for this year’s display. Tear down starts on Monday (unless we are colder than the North Pole which is a distinct possibility this year).
I haven’t made any final decisions about returning next year, and I won’t for a few months, but for many reasons, it might be time to retire the display. The decision is difficult as there are also still many reasons to continue. Stay tuned for any updates next year.
For all of you that have allowed us to be part of your family traditions, thank you. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and I wish you a great new year.
Quiet on the set. Queue the Snowman. Queue the Polar Bear and start the snow machine! What perfect timing for a little snowfall. Watch it snowing here on the live video stream. It’s Christmas Eve!
I can’t wait for him to stop by. 🙂
Just a few updates going into these last 4 days:
– Thanks for all the toy donations! Again, it amazes me how many toys we receive. I made one last trip to the distribution center today and over the last 3+ weeks, I delivered several hundred toys. Many, many local kids will have a happy Christmas morning.
– Don’t forget to get your “I Believe Bell” – you will see a container in the driveway through Christmas night.
– Live video is streaming here: TwasTheNightBefore Live Video
Merry Christmas everyone!
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!
