The 2012 Madison Christmas House light show is on
I apologize for the noise in my music tonight, but someone in the neighborhood has something running causing the interference. There is not much that I can do until next year.
Welcome to our new web page, this is a work in progress, and I will be adding new items from time to time... I’m sorry that we could not save or transfer the very nice comments from the old site. So please fill free to add new comments. You will notice that on this new site, we have a blog page. I will be able to keep you updated new information and some of our thoughts. Thank you for your time, and may all of your days be Holidays.
Welcome to our 2012 Computerize Christmas Light Show. The show will run from 6:00 to 10:00 on Sunday through Thursday, and 6:00 to 11:00 on Fridays and Saturdays, November 23ed through December 31st. This year we have 16 controls with 256 separate channels. With the computer controlling the lights we have the ability to turn lights on, Step the intensity up and down, make the lights shimmer, and twinkle. Also with computer control, the lights will not come on if it is raining, also they will turn off if it starts raining. This is for the safety of the lights and for your safety also. Although it does not look like it because all of the lights are not on at the same time, there are 44,206 lights in the display. Oh, we can also turn the lights off. The show last 18 minutes and 6 seconds. We hope that you enjoy the show.
The songs for this year are as follows:
Krypton – London Symphony Orchestra
Bruce-Broughton Overture - Bruce Broughton
The Chipmunk Song - The Chipmunks

Directions: On the Hilltop of Madison: We are located on the East side of town, Off of Highway 62, also called Clifty Drive When you find the Holiday Inn Express, Franks Drive is on the South side of the 4 lane highway. Turn onto Franks Drive and go around the two curves, past the stop sign, up the hill. We are the house on the North side with all of the lights. Please turn your radio to 107.1 on the FM dial, so that you will be able to hear the music.
We are happy to have you as a guest to view our display. As we and our neighbors have to live here all season (and not just visit it once or twice), we are asking you to help us out by abiding by the following -- and please pass this information on to anyone you might refer our display to:
Please do not block any driveways.
Please keep all litter in your vehicle.
Please do not use driveways to turn around. Our Neighborhood makes a full loop so please just circle around.
If you'd like to stay and watch the show for a while, that's great. If you have a particularly noisy vehicle, it would really help us keep neighborhood peace if you didn't idle it for long periods of time If you can shut it off for a while, that would make our neighbors happy.
Similarly, please avoid honking horns (whether to show appreciation, or other reasons). If you'd like to leave us feedback we'd love to hear from you at madisonchristmashouse.com, but car horns can really get on our neighbor's (and our) nerves!
In order to make the display better for next year, please leave a feedback, Likes - dislikes, and suggestions - Thank you for your time. And thanks for visiting Madison Christmas House.
From the home of Frank and Alice Bye: Thank you for stopping by, and have a Marry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
