Let there be light!

One of my favorite things to do during the holiday season is put on my scarf and hat, and walk around the neighborhood admiring everyone’s decorations. I am always amazed at how much time and effort some people go through to turn their house into a flashing masterpiece. Some even go to the extreme to synchronize their house lights to music. For example, the video below shows a house covered in over 54,000 lights that are coordinated to go with the melody of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s song, “Christmas Eve in Sarajevo.”

Pretty crazy, huh? I wonder how the neighbors feel about this.
I also found some amazing houses in an article from Yahoo. If you visit Patricia Farmer in Alexandria, Virginia, you’ll see the creative candyland that she put together, which includes “a giant snowglobe, hundreds of candy canes hanging from trees, and a ‘toy shop’ on the front porch.”
Some people not only go out of their way to decorate, but they go out of their way to decorate for a cause. Alek Komarnitsky of Lafayette, Colorado sets up his lights and decorations and syncs them to a software which allows viewers to actually control the display through the internet! Komarnitsky’s intention is to motivate people to donate to the University of Maryland’s Center for Celiac Research, as both of his children have been diagnosed with the condition.

So Swaggernauts, do you decorate your house for the holidays? Have you seen any displays recently that you think top the ones I have just discussed? Tell me about it!
