That is the rule in our house too! It will be inflated after Thanksgiving dinner. I can't wait... 9 hours and counting!

air intake

We've had ours set up for a few weeks and noticed Santa is getting a bit "shy" about opening the door.

Problem turned out to be the leaves that have started falling around here. They clog the air intake on the fan, reducing air pressure inside.

Dave I wasn't allowed to set it up until Thanksgiving night but since we're hosting both families this year I begged to put it up so it would be going when the family got here so I could show it off. I guess I looked pathetic enough, it worked.

We bought our's at Lowes here in Windsor Ontario Canada in October for $148 + tax, and this week they went on sale for $111 + tax. We still had it in the box.
We don't put it up until Dec 1.
Anyway, we took it back to the store yesterday, (there were NO MORE on the shelf), and they refunded us the difference ($41). Very nice.
Still can't wait to put it up.
It's going up at Mom's trailer park on Lake Erie. Perfect.

You gotta love the rock front yard. The grass mat and the Flamingo make it feel complete.

I will get a daytime shot of this menagerie, I am attempting to piss off my HOA for a couple of different reasons. The lights across the front of the house are not holiday lights, but 4 strings of vintage riviera patio lights from the 60's. I am still looking for some more plastic flamingos that I can put a c-9 bulb into and illuminate. I still haven't figured out where I should place the Festivus pole.

Looks great, Louis! Having dealt with a few HOAs in my lifetime, I'm sure you'll piss them off.

On the Airstream display, does Santa open and close the door with some kind of motor? Or do you have to do that manually?

Mike,

The Santa comes out automatically. He stands and opens the door and then deflates and the door closes and it keeps cycling that way over and over. I think there is some sort of a valve that opens and closes which inflates and deflates the santa causing the animation. We will be bringing this to Picacho for the Rally. It really is pretty cool and well made.

Well, it was not meant to be: did not score a RV Santa. Prices were reduced 75%, but there are none left in Georgia or Alabama. Still a great Christmas anyway.
