Most often asked questions include

How many lights are there? We really do not know, but estimate that we reached our aim of over 100,000 lights in 2007, however, since our display is now much smaller, there would probably be over 50,000
For how long have you been doing your display? We started with a few Party Lights on the front of the house when we moved to Lobethal in 1983, and we began to expand the display about 3 years later.
Due to our health we did not do a display 2009-2012, and restarted in 2013.
How long does it take to set up the display? Usually about 8 or more weeks.
Do you put up the display by yourselves? We do most of the display ourselves, but now need h elp with the roof display and some of the heavier items.
Do you receive sponsorship help with the cost? No.
The "Lights of Lobethal Committee" receives Sponsorship, and money for help with the infrastructure, and organisational expenses, but individual homes do not receive any help.
What about the electricity, doesn't the power companies give the homes a rebate off their power bills? No.
Again the sponsorship from the power utilities goes to the "Lights of Lobethal Committee"
Your display must add a lot to your electricity bill. Not really, it is impossible to estimate just how much it costs to run our display, but our winter bill is higher, so we assume that it is cheaper to run the display than it is to heat our home.
