    What does

     Sanch-wold mean?

    Sanch-wold is the name of our light show display's. It relates to when the two elves inside got married and merged their last names, Sanchez and Griswold. Now there is no direct connection to Clark but the display does channel him each year.

     We would like to take this time and Welcome you to Sanchwold Holiday lights. Our Christmas Display features fully choreographed Music and Light Animation, artfully blended with the traditions of the Season. Creating Christmas Memories and Holiday Traditions is a big part of our family. Our Christmas light show is truly worth experiencing in person. LED technology continues to play a significant role where applicable. Currently we use approx 98% LEDs Christmas Lights. The lights and music are run by a lap top computer. The lights and show literally turns itself on and off using a program called Light O Rama through the computer. The show is about 99.8% self sufficient, sometimes you might see us outside doing a bit of tweaking. 

         Christmas memories are timeless, and we wanted to create special memories for our community and our family. We don't really know why, but the combination of lights and music create a lasting memory for everybody who has seen the display. We are currently the largest animated residential display in the Goleta and Santa Barbara, California area. Please view our Youtube Channel to see videos of our show's from the past and present. 


         As the years go on, our show will continue to grow. We look forward to sharing our animated Christmas light show with you and your families. Make sure you pull up and tune your radio station to FM 97.9 and if you don't mind the cool air at night, feel free to get out of your car, as we tend to play the show music at low volume outside.

         Happy Holidays and we look forward to seeing you this holiday season - Sanchwold Holiday Lights.
