I always enjoy hearing from all who have visited the website or the display. After a long day of putting out lights and wiring, this is where I come to remind myself of one of the reasons I do the display each year; the joy it brings to so many! If you would like, please scroll down and leave me a comment.

Every year for the past 3 years, my children and I have come by and watched the lights. It's amazing what you've done and are doing. As a child my parents would take me for ice cream and we would drive around for hours looking at Christmas lights, a tradition that I have continued with my children. I love seeing the lights! Keep up the good work! God Bless!

I'm so sad to see the lights come down. Thank you for another great year of festive lights and affordable entertainment! I'm glad you agree to continue doing it each year. There is another family in Texas who's lights remind me of yours.

Your dancing lights display is one of the highlights for my family every year. It's been about 3 years now and it never gets old. Love it and the the fact that you have used it as a platform to bring awareness to Agape. God bless and Merry Christmas!

Thank You so much for taking the time to put up the lights and put this all together we had a small bus that was full of children with eyes wide open and mouth too. I think the adults enjoyed it just as much. One of the adults made the statement "This has put me into the Christmas spirit". Thank you for reminding us the reason for the season. God Bless you and your family.

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

I found your house tonight by happy accident! I also broke one of the rules (unknowingly of course)- we turned around in the dead-end. When we visit again, we'll be sure to heed that rule. Thanks so much for this gift.

Tonight was the my first time to see the Lights! It was awesome! Thanks for putting all of it together.

Thank you so much for taking your time every year to do this for the river region. This was the first time my son (3), my husband and I have seen your lights and my son enjoyed every minute of it. He was upset when it was over and we had to leave to allow others to get their chance. We plan to make this a must stop every year. Again, thank you for sharing with us, it was beautiful.

You obviously have many tremendous talents Thyno (and an enormous amount of patience). The website as well as both the inside and outside of your house were all amazing. We should all be as concerned as you and your family in helping to promote the joy and meaning of Christmas. Wishing you the best for the holiday season.

Awesome website and your house display is beautiful. I ived in Montgomery between 1992-1998. I definitely need to come and visit sometime during the holidays!
Posted by Caroline Wilder on
I absolutely love your light show. I enjoy going to it every year. I would not miss it for anything. Thank you for all you do. Merry Christmas!
Posted by Pam on
Your display is always beautiful and makes Christmas! During this time of economic difficulty, high unemployment, foreclosures.......what delight your show brings to all economic levels. It makes one forget their problems ! Shame on the HOA for not thinking of the delight of others this holiday season! Thank you for all your hard work!

We heard about the controversy this year and just had to come see this years display. We loved The Grinch and just wish that we had seen the display in previous years. I hope you are able to do this for many years to come and look forward to hopefully being able to see the more elaborate displays.

Great display. My family and I enjoy watching it every year.

I read about your lights online yesterday. It is so sad that some people cant allow the Christmas spirit shine. Looking at your website, you have brought such joy to so many people during Christmas. God Bless you and dont let them turn out your lights. Let the visitors stand with you and fight for your Christmas gift the the community.

Thanks Thyno for allowing us to play in your front yard last night and take pictures with your gorgeous lights!!!! :) Merry CHRISTmas!!!!!

I visited your neighborhood last night. I was with my daugther, son-in-law and two grandchildren (Carlie (3) & Johnny 22 months old). They were so amazed at the lights and music. I loved the expression on Johnny's face. No words can describe the enjoyment I had watching my two grandbabies enjoying the lights and music.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
Brenda, Jennifer, Keith, Carlie & Johnny

So again thank you and Merry Christmas and may GOD bless you and your family.

Sorry about all your troubles. It is a shame these people are thinking only of themselves and not the joy you brought to many. Merry Christmas friend!
Posted by The Rech Family on
Please don't listen to those "Scrooges" in your neighborhood! My son is 12 and every year since he was 3 it's been a tradition to come by your house to see the lights and hear the music at Christmas (sometimes more than once). We make it a family outing with dinner beforehand. We all pile in the car with hot chocolate and come to your house. Some people just ruin a good thing. Tell your neighbor to go jump in a lake and Bahhh humbug!!! Merry Christmas!

I want to say thank you for all your family has done showing Christmas spirit.I know it is hard work to put up lights and putting up with thousands of people staring at your house every night.Thank you for giving us somewhere to go with our families that everyone can hear the true meaning of Christmas.I applaud you for finding a way to give back to your community by taking donations for Charities with great sacrifice on your part.If you need people to band together to fight for your light display against the HOA let us know.We will fight with you.I hope even if you have had to scale back that the message of the true meaning of Christmas can still be said with your display.May God bless your family during this Christmas and in years to come.

Love the idea of the song you will be playing. So perfect. Hopefully next year you can go back to the old display.

Thanks for your great display. I'm sorry that some petty Harper Valley P.T.A. types have such a problem with a seasonal display of love. My family and I certainly enjoy the results of the hard work you put in each year. Thank you.
Posted by Chelsea on
Just wanted to let you know that I have enjoyed your display for the pasy few years and love it! Came by last night and saw the different set up and then read what went on with the HOA. I was sorry to hear how things were handled. However, I commend you on the reason why you do it, the people you help and all the joy it brings so many of us! Thank you for all your hard work for putting together these displays, I have yet to be disappointed :)
May God Bless you!!

We enjoy the light display and love the webpage. I especially like the photo of you and your sisters and parents in front of the fireplace at 101 Arden. I know you grew up there as did my children. My best to your parents. Merry Christmas! Love, Cousin Margaret

Although it's January, I'm still missing Christmas terribly. I can relate to what you were saying about how hard it is to turn the corner to your street and not see all the spectators and lights dancing. You've done a great job at providing a low cost Chrismas show for the public.

Merry Christmas!

I love your website...wish my family and I could have seen your light display in person!
Posted by Roland Hempup on
Hey Thyno, my brother and I were going to get some milk when he suggested I turn into your neighborhood to see your light show. He and his friend made a tradition of it back when you first started. Needless to say when I turned the corner and saw the spectacle of lights my jaw dropped. It was truly AMAZING! The synchronization with the music blew my mind. Thank you very much for your wonderful christmas spirit and message. I hope to see many more in the future. Merry Christmas, Roland
Posted by Lissa on
Thyno, Carmen and I came by and visited for a while last night. It was her first time......needless to say, we both enjoyed the show! The lights, the music and the message really brings out the best in all of us. Jesus is the reason for the season. Thanks for the heart warming message. Merry Christmas, Lissa

Merry Christmas from Marrero, Louisiana (westbank of New Orleans) I absolutely love, positively love the music that is playing when I came on to your site. It is just so cheery and brought tears to my eyes. I was remembering the Christmas's of long ago of when our 6 children were little tiny things and Don and I were young. We were married 45 years this past May. I hope that you have a very wonderful and blessed Christmas with you and your family. Give your parents a special hug for me. I really miss mine. May God be with each of you. Most very sincerely, Bertie

Merry Christmas Thyno!

Always remember that the Family Sunshine Center loves you more than you will ever know!

To all who are guests on this website and/or visited Thyno's display and certainly to anyone who contributed to our mission, we thank you a thousand times over.

Thyno came into our life totally unannounced and completely humble. Despite four consecutive years of his incredible generosity, it is hard to comprehend the selfless gift he offers, yet the realization of his faith in the Christ Child makes it crystal clear. His service to the many women and children who seek our assistance because of violence and to so many more who enjoy the true celebration Christmas perfectly emulates His commandment to “love thy neighbor as thyself.".

Each year the staff of the Family Sunshine Center finds an increasingly tender appreciation for Thyno’s annual Christmas display of lights and so much more to the broader community.

To close 2009 we thank you from the bottom of our hearts Thyno and wish you the very best in 2010!

Peace and love from everyone
Family Sunshine Center

Saw your display twice this year. I think the young folks over use the word "awesome,"
But it seem to apply here.

My family and I have been enjoying your ligh display for 3 years now. I'm interested in knowing how I would go about obtaining a shortwave radion frequency? I'd like to try my own light display in the future; of course I'm sure it wouldn't compare to yours (lol).

Keep up the good work!

My Uncle Thyno is unquestionably the Santa Claus of our family, and I'm sure you can see why... his love of Christmas and giving spirit is clear whether you're just visiting his website or meeting him in person! The light display is truly amazing and if you are in the Montgomery area around Christmas time, it is a must-see. I'm so proud of you, Theo Thyno Claus! I love you!
Posted by Kris Trotman on
I think I am the only person in Montgomery that had not seen your display. Well, this year I did! It was FANTASTIC, AMAZING, I cannot believe that you did all of that yourself. Cant wait until next year. Merry Christmas

Mr. Zgouvas,

My family and I enjoy seeing your display every year. I am amazed about the amount of work you put into setting up such a wonderful display year after year. Thank you for taking the time to set up your display each year. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
Posted by Mom on
Just wanted to say how proud of you I am that you do so much for the people of Montgomery, The Sunshine Center and for the love of our Lord. I, for sure, know the time and effort you put into this and how difficult it is, but it is wonderful because you bring such joy to everyone that watches it. I only wish I could be out there with you every night and watch the faces, smiles and bright, wide open eyes of everyone in awe of such a display.

Love you and God Bless You Always.

As a resident of Eastern Forest, I've always loved your lights! I loved your house the most even before you animated them (I always liked colorful lights and you were the only one in the neighborhood to have them)! Me and my family always stop by at night for a few minutes when we enter and leave our house! Thank you for sharing the Christmas spirit!!
Posted by Jennifer on
What an awesome ministry! I could sit in front of your house for hours, but I don't think the people waiting in line would appreciate it:) Thank you for the wonderful display - my whole family truly enjoyed viewing your home.
Posted by Terrelle Lewis on
Hello. Just wanted to say that my friend heard about this display and we decided to bring our children (four daughters) to see your lights. I must say that we were fascinated and probably watched the show for 15-20 minutes. You did a wonderful job and we will definitely visit again in the future!!!
Posted by Kim McKinley on
Love the website! The work and creativity you put into your displays are impressive and so enjoyable to so many. Your faith is even more impressive.

Nice site, Thyno. Great family pic and sentiment. What makes this truly wonderful is that someone as busy as you takes time out to do something so nice for other people. You're one in a million. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
