Gi-normous tree

Daniel's 2004 DisplayI'm heading over to my buddy Daniel's place tomorrow to help him with his Christmas decorations. He's chronocling on his blog his efforts to build what he has dubbed the "GT", the "Gi-normous Tree", for his Christmas yard display. He's trying to top last year's effort (shown at right) by erecting an eighteen foot tall tree made out of Xmas lights in his front yard.

A worthy cause! As you probably know from my Halloween efforts, I am a strong believer that if you're going to try to entertain people, you might as well think big. Scale impresses people. Vision impresses people. Detail impresses people. If you bring these things to the table, even your critics will take notice and be entertained.

Daniel is a kindred spirit who thinks big, has a fertile imagination, has an insatiable creative drive, and wants to reach out to the community with projects he hopes they enjoy. I can't wait to stand at the base of the Gi-normous Tree tomorrow and see it. I know it's going to be really cool.
