Whoa! When I went to Garden Ridge and found this 20' tall Snowman that went all the way to the ceiling in the store I knew I had to have it. I was able to hold back for a week, but then I went and bought him, and WOW! It's as big as my house.

Thanks for the morning giggle - I had to reassure my son I wasn't watching porn on the internet - "ooh yeahhhh", "look at that - it's so big", etc -- too funny...

Supporting membership on DIYC...$20
64 strings of lights...$100
Ren64, SSR's, Cat5, solder, flux, enclosures etc...$350
Electricity for 40 nights of blinky flashy...$<your value here>

Having a GIANT snowman stairing into your 2nd story window...PRICELESS

Every morning, you'll look out and it will put a smile on your face, likely your neighbors too!

So cool ... I had to get me one of those ... Oh boy, A BIG TOY. Now I need to find a way to make my "tune to:" sign where I can have it hanging from his arm.

Here's a photo. I'm 6' tall, the snowman is 20', more than 3x taller than me.

I was thinking the same thing about putting it on the roof. If you get any ideas , let me know and I'll do the same.

Absolutely the coolest (pun?) decoration! Great family video.
I personally am restricted from these decorations for one reason: helium.
