Title: Hallloowweeen
Post by: profdc9 on November 01, 2018, 04:19:50 AM
Hello,

I just wanted to mention that tonight I set up my Tesla coil and it was a big hit with the kids in the neighborhood.  Nothing excites the trick-or-treaters like a musical lightning machine on Halloween.  I played Hall of the Mountain King, Night on Bald Mountain, Toccata and Fugue, Funeral March of the Marionettes, as well as other tunes.

Nice with a little local display, did you get any videos of it?

Halloween is not a big deal in Denmark (only shops and commercial interests tries really hard to make it a thing to sell more stuff), there is a few kids or houses with a little decoration. We have our "kids dress up" holiday in February called Fastelavn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fastelavn

I considered getting videos, but some parents get kind of uppity when you video their kids, so I decided against it.  I have to say though that by-and-large the people in my neighborhood have been fairly tolerant and open to the crazy neighbor that creates lightning in his garage. :)
