Read about Energy Cost of Christmas Decorations
Outdoor inflatable yard decorations are popular. They range from a simple blow-up cartoon character to an 8-foot tall globe with rotating internal figures. Some even have re-circulated "snow" and lights.
A large, static snow globe consumes about 150 watts, while a rotating carousel consumes around 200 watts. For a month season, 16 hours per day, the total electricity cost would be $9 - $12 for one of these inflatable yard displays.
That is on the assumption that folks will want to keep the display inflated during daylight hours, but not all night. If you keep it on 24 hours, a day the cost a full month would be in the $14 to $18 dollar range.
