Christmas Lights

Every year there are more and more videos of people who have decorated their houses and yards with light that are synchronized to music. I think my all time favourite is the one played to that TransSiberian Orchestra tune, but I've put that up here in the past, so this year, I've found a new one that I like.

When I watched this on youtube, I read the comments below and discovered that this person's neighbours called the police about the increased traffic in the area. He now does a display elsewhere (not at his house - he lives somewhere in Utah). I can't imagine people being that curmudgeonly that they would begrudge a little Christmas spirit. It is for a short period of time each year, and it's something that gives people a little bit of joy.

So, in keeping the peace in my neighbourhood (I don't think this kind of thing goes over too well in an apartment building), I have put up the video for your hassle-free enjoyment.

Merry Christmas to one and all!


  1. Very nice, very nice indeed. The only sound "our" display makes is Martha cussing when she has to change a bulb, and the neighbors are used to that.

  2. Oh, I forgot. Merry Christmas from the two of us.

  3. one year I went a little nutty with a ton of lights/etc in our front yard. Nothing like this, but it was BRIGHT and the neighbors loved it. (no music.) Why did I stop? We got the electric bill about a month later. YIKES!!! and... it was no fun taking it all down, so now I enjoy the hard work and expense of others. Thank you for the video and Merry Christmas!

  4. Actually, this one is more tasteful than most..he must have really grumpy neighbors!

    Thanks for the cheer.

  5. What fun! I did enjoy that. Thank you Ponita and a Happy Christmas.

  6. I know the guys who started the Christmas lights on 37th Street in Austin. Almost every house is decorated and there are lights strung house-to-house to tie it all together.

    There are lots of videos on YouTube: search for "37th Street Lights."

  7. Wishing you the best Christmas ever.

  8. HAPPY CHRISTMAS, m'dear, have a brilliant one!

  9. -----((*))--

    Feliz Navidad, Ponita and family!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

    I wish you much happiness, good fortune, and much fun for the coming year.

    Stay warm and safe and cozy!


So you have something to say about all this, do you?
