Holiday light displays.. behind obscure glass. INTENSE!

It's that wonderfull time of year again... and the Holiday light displays go up.

Every year, I suggest to fellow Eichlerholics a real cool thing I saw as a kid... putting the lights behind your obscure glass.

If you have one of those models with the obscure glass on the front of the house, or flanking the atrium, you probably already know the beautifull, halo-like corona the lights produce through the glass.

Holiday lights behind the glass is a real cool effect, and you can experiment with different sized light halos... different distances from the glass. Finally, the glass hides the wires. which makes the whole thing more mysterious.

Hope the following pics will give you some idea...

Try it.. it's really etherial. And PLEASE SEND OR UPLOAD PICS!

That IS really cool! I wish that i had seen your post BEFORE Christmas! I will certainly be giving your idea a try next season.

Thanks Wally,

Paul
