The weekend recap:
First and foremost, the weather was great! Santa is doing a great job in keeping the rain away…but he keeps mentioning that its awfully warm!
It was an excellent weekend for visitors. Lots and lots of limos (especially Friday & Saturday, lots and lots of busses (including the Franklin Holly Trolleys) and lots and lots and lots of cars (especially Saturday night). I had a great team of traffic control directors each night and everything went smoothly. Santa was very busy every night, but especially on Saturday. His visiting hours are 6:00 to 9:00, but he almost always arrives early and leaves a little late (Mrs. Santa, I keep telling him when 9:00 comes but he just keeps on having fun).
Lights keep working great with very few figures having problems (I do have a problem with a naked boy, but I’m working on it). Added one more figure and about 300 lights…but I am really close to the limit on my house power so not much more.
Picked up a few more states…Oregon, Arkansas, Mississippi, Kentucky and South Dakota…for a total of 26 to date. If you are not on my list and have dropped by, please let me know as I certainly have missed many. Also had visitors from Great Britain, Scotland and Ireland drop by…for a total of 10 countries.
Santa will be visiting every night thru Sunday, December 23rd, so come by and see him. Hint…weekdays have the least traffic and lines.
