Normally the LivingRoomCam of a mild mannered American household, Christmas time causes a transformation into ChristmasCam!! There are Christmas lights around the house, garlands over the windows and a Christmas tree that we open our presents around on Christmas morning. Come and enjoy our tree and join us for Christmas.
I've started leaving a light on at night so the people on the other side of the planet have something to look at besides black. I also collect one image an hour for the last 24 hours .
Our living room has been Christmas Cam for a bunch of years. You can check out:
If you don't believe in Santa Claus, in 1995, we even caught Santa Claus leaving presents out our house (RealMedia video) . We didn't ever catch him again -- we think you can only fool the Santa guy once.

Merry Christmas!! Well, the presents are open, much candy has been eaten, and the kids are already bored with their toys. We had a few visitors to the chat room and exchanged greetings with England and Germany as well as places in the USA. Now to think about cleaning up the house for the party next weekend. Well, maybe a nap first.

I've set up a chat site for chatting with us on Christmas morning. Stop by and say "hi".

Yes, there is no Christmas Tree. Couldn't get the family out in the rain to get a tree. We'll have it up next weekend, promise. Votes are piling up in favor of the east end (see below).

GE came to fix, ordered a part but hasn't asked for money yet. Looks like the part they replaced 6 months ago may still be under warranty.
NOTE TO THE CRIMINALLY INCLINED:our house has an alarm (door and window sensors and motion detectors) and we live in a small town whose cops actually show up in five minutes. So, save us both a lot of trouble, and don't even bother.
Pointers to some camera technology:
