is important to make sure the one you choose is both weatherproof and
waterproof. There is a difference. Waterproof just means it keeps the water
out. You want an outdoor holiday projector that is durable and can
withstand temperature extremes, rain, sleet, snow, ice, or whatever weather
is common in your area.
Some outdoor holiday projectors have metal parts that can rust. These will
only last one season. Look for rust proof or plastic parts. If you live in
an area that gets a lot of snow, a stake or tripod is a must have. The

brighter the projector will need to be. The size of the projected image is

of these projectors just need an outlet but some may require a long
extension cord. If the holiday projector you choose also produces sound,
you will need speakers, wires and maybe even an MP3 player and/or FM

neighbors. Be considerate and turn the sound off when it gets late. Even
better, put the projector on a timer so it turns off automatically. There
are holiday projectors that come with built in timers. That leaves one less

security. Unfortunately, these projectors are easy to steal. You may want
to secure the projector or bring it in at night if you think that is a
possibility. Also, make sure the cords are secured so people will not trip
when they come to admire your decorations.
