 I would like to personally

thank my family, particularly

my wife, 

she puts up with my Christmas music,

time on the computer, and large purchases.
Without her the display would not be

possible. Not only is she my partner

but my best friend,

Love you Dear.

                                                                                              

 
 

 

      Thank you all that server                                                 

 

                                                             

 

2017 Christmas

Welcome to Kolde Christmas 2017.  Every year we hope for a Christmas filled with all of our favorite things.  This year, we decided to make it a year filled with our favorite songs from Christmas shows past.  The songs we’ve picked come from our Christmas light shows over the past 8 years.  We hope some of our favorites are some of your favorites too!  Our Christmas lights show consists of 48,000 lights and over 2 miles of extension cords.  We wish you all a very, merry Christmas.  May it be a year will with all of your favorite things!

2016 1950's Christmas

We got some old records off the shelf, but we won’t listen to them by ourselves.  Today’s music ain’t in our Christmas show.  We like that old time rock n’ roll…Christmas, that is.

Welcome, everyone, to Kolde Christmas 2016 where we are celebrating an “Old Time Rock n’ Roll Christmas”.

This year, we’ve added one new feature to our show, the mini trees across the front lawn.  The addition of this new feature brings our grand total number of lights to 53,000; with over 2 miles of extension cords.

As we have done for the past 7 years, we will be collecting food to donate to a local church.  If you would like to help us with a donation, please feel free to leave food in the box at the front of the driveway.

From our family to yours, “Have a rockin’ good Christmas!” and enjoy the show!

Yee Haw howdy all, welcome to Kolde Christmas. This year's theme is Redneck Christmas So get your boots on, plop a hat on your head,
and hold on to your horses.

2012 Techno Christmas 

This year we hope you are ready to "TECHNO".

The Christmas song for this years' show have a techno beat. We also have a couple of other fun additions. Our son encouraged us to go "Gangnam Style" and we've added a red, white, and blue tribute to our troops.

The house has been decked out with red, green, and white lights. We've also added 10 mini trees to the show. We have a total of 45,000 lights this year and 1.2 miles of extension cords.

We are proud of the show we have prepared for  you this year, but we now have some competition. My little brother thinks he has the better show. We encourage you to check out both of them and cast your vote for your favorite light show.

Please remember to bring donations for our food drive. We continue the tradition of donating food to Set Free Church. Our goal this year is to donate 200 lbs of food to feed the hungry member of our community here in Riverside.

           MERRY CHRISTMAS    

                        Troops

 

 

                               And all that have served

 

 


2011 Christmas Past

                                                                                                  

" Remembering Christmas's Past " is this years theme. For this year's show, we have put up about 37,000 lights,

using years past light shows.

Way to go RIVERSIDE we have collected

   517lbs of food in the past 3 years. 

 

From KoldeChrismas

to you

MERRY CHRISTMAS !

    

                                                           

 

2010 Cartoon Christmas

 

"It's shaping up to be a wonderful holiday..."

This year's light show is titled "Cartoon Christmas".  It is filled with songs by Spongebob Squarepants, Disney characters, Looney Tunes, and other fun kid-inspired melodies

For this year's show, we have put up about 35,000 lights.  We changed our color scheme from red and white to red and green.   The contrast of red and green is impressive. This also gets us ready for next year as we prepare to use

red, white, and green lights

We are collecting food donations again this year to feed local residents.  Our goal is to collect 100 lbs. of food.  You can see how we are progressing on this goal by watching the thermometer go up as we get closer and closer (by percentage) to the goal.

Please come by and enjoy the show.  If you do, you may be greeted and treated to a candy cane by a member of our family.  Our sons are also selling hot cocoa to make some money for their holiday gift-giving.

 Merry Christmas to all and we hope that it is "shaping up to be a wonderful holiday" for you, too!

                                                                                                                                      

2009 Family Christmas

 

This Year we upgraded to 200 amp for Christmas. A far cry form 30 amps we had last year.

We also added more lights,

     Holidays are coming…holidays are coming…holidays are coming…We are excited for everyone to see the 32,000 lights decorating our house this year.  It took all year to plan and several days to set up, but we areready!  Our show this year is a synchronization of lights to seven entertaining Christmas songs (including one popular cola commercial).  In addition to lights covering the house and roof, this year we have added a mega tree and arches of leaping lights that cross our yard.  We are also collecting non-perishable food to help support those who feed needy families in our community.  We hope everyone comes by to see the show, donate food for the needy, get a candy cane, and  maybe even buy some hot chocolate from our son

(on the weekends)!

We would like to thank all that donated food this year. We quickly surpass our original goal of 100 lbs of food, so we ambitiously change our goal to 200 lbs.

Again

                           THANK YOU                                                                                                                                                                                             


2008 Christmas Light Show

      In 2008 our display grown in leaps and bounds, to 17,935 lights to be precise.Beginning in July, plans were made for our light to "dance" to music. Through the purchase of a Light-O-Rama program, the synchronization began on the computer. Several hours have been put into organizing the display on the computer. Then (after a bit of a detour for halloween decoration), we got all of the necessary materials together (more lights!) and got the house prepped. On November 16th, through the help of our wonderful family, the house and tree were covered in lights. After many test runs, the whole show went live on Thanksgiving night. It runs nightly from 5:30pm to 9:00 pm. Just drive by, tune your radio in to 106.5FM, and enjoy the show!

   

2007 Christmas Light Show

 

   Our first year with Christmas lights      on our home, 

  

         then....                  

   

         

 You see I like all white lights and she likes all color so as a compromise between my wife and myself  I set it  up to switch back and forth from white to color every minute. So, with 5,000 lights we started our 

Christmas light show.


                                                                                                         

A Christmas Light Enthusiasts Prayer

"As I untangle strings

of Christmas Lights,

Lord help me to remember that

I do this first to honor you.

Never let me get so prideful

of my display

that I fail to see the wonders in the 

eyes of a child or

the joy in thefaces of those

who are still children at heart.

Never let me forget that my

total effort is to make

Christmas memories,

bring cheer, and to slow down

the pace of a hectic season

if only for a moment.

And, Lord, someday when I

meet you face to face,

may I hear you say:

"When you made My people smile,

you made Me smile."
