Tangletown resident Jeff Rodenburg has once again decked out his home with the Greenlake Christmas light display.
You can find the display of over 30,000 lights on NE 57th St, just east of Latona Ave NE. The show launched on Friday, Nov. 25, 2011 and will be on every night through New Year’s Day, 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
Jeff, a software developer, is a self-described “holiday lighting enthusiast.” This is the 10th year he has lit up his home. Each year, he says, the display has improved. “Yes, it has grown in size,” he says, “but it’s not about quantity. My goal around our display has been to maintain a simple design that fits well with our house, yard and neighborhood.”
Why does Jeff do it? “I like the technical side of it,” he explains. “I enjoy figuring out lighting plans and being creative with decorations and music synchronization, because I’m a geek at heart. But, mostly I do it to see the expressions on the faces of neighbors and friends who stop by, especially the little kids.”
