Travel to Putnam County and listen to the Christsmas lights.
Christmas has always been Bob Lipinski's favorite time of year. As a child he dreamed of the presents Santa would bring and loved the music of the season. As a young adult he adopted the tasks of decorating his parent's house, and loved the music of the season. As a parent he has continued the tradition, decorating his own home, seeing to it that his children enjoyed themselves as well, and ... loving the music of the season!
Through the years, Bob has collected many hours of Christmas music and played it in the car and in the house from Thanksgiving until well past New Year's Day. In 2005 he (along with many others) became aware of Carson Williams and his Christmas lights synchronized to "Wizards in Winter" by Trans Siberian Orchestra. Bob was so impressed that he set about researching how he could accomplished that feat. That led him to a variety of websites, among which PlanetChristmas.com stands out as the premier repository of pertinent information.
All during 2006 Bob was consumed with designing and building all the components of the display. The Lipinski's went live for the very first time on December 2, 2006 with lights sequenced to three songs. Their goal is to improve the display each year.
2007 has seen the addition of twenty new mini trees, eight new controllers (64 more channels), a yard card representing the nativity, a three-channel Bethlehem star to replace the little five-point star from last year, and LED lights on the mega tree.
2008 adds four arches each with six strands of blue LED lights and new musical sequences.
