Christmas 2001 was our last at our previous location, which Tim first decorated in 1996. For 2001, several new trees were lit up. We made more use of solid-color lights which made the display appear more colorful (although these digital camera photos don't really do the color justice). For example, the trees in conjunction with our Merry Christmas Sign were changed from multi to solid-color.
Several "trees of lights" were added to the display, to fill in some previously dark spots. These were also solid-color, and contributed to the look of this area.
An 8-foot tall inflatable fabric snowman was added...
...and 4-foot Illuminated fabric Santa and Snowman figures were also added:
Our Linus Shares the Gospel display saw some improvements as well We replaced over half of the slides to make them more readable, and a new slide was added in memory of our dog Sampson, who passed away in October 2001.
An American Flag made out of mini-lights was added in memory of the victims of Sept. 11, 2001 and the resulting war on terrorism.
Starting in June of that year, I created a "running log" of design ideas for the 2001 display. Click here to view this log.
