They will deal with it.
I helped set this display up. Over the past couple weeks I could see them looking at it more and more before we lit it up.

It's ~ 176k lights, 496 channels on Light-O-Rama.

Not digging the song, but by favorite part of the lights was the stacking lights on the pillars and that cool tree that keeps changing colors smoothly.

Lots of work i bet!

Very Tedious indeed.
Worst part was braiding the 3 different color strands of lights together as one
