Allow us to dash your sense of achievemnt with 3 stunning Christmas light shows presented by families whose holiday cheer knows no bounds. Can you imagine being their neighbors? We would definitely feel like the Simpsons to their Flanders. Enjoy these videos, and let us know which one is your favorite in the comment section below!
1. The Johnson Family Dubstep Christmas Light Show
Even if you're not a fan of dubstep, you can't help but marvel at the creativity of this one. The Johnson family has been entertaining the world with their musical light shows since 2013.
On their YouTube channel the Johnson's explain why their show is so unique:
"There are no inflatables, characters, blow molds, or other 'traditional' elements. Even the music is not traditional Christmas music; it is a custom sound track composed of Dubstep, EDM, hip hop, movie clips and even our children! The result is an exciting show that feels like a dance party! Even the lights are not traditional, we use Pixels which are similar to what you would see in a stadium Jumbotron. Each pixel can be controlled individually and set to any color and intensity. This means many more effects than what can be done with Christmas lights! The show embodies the spirit of DIY and cutting edge technology with all custom built elements, kit based controllers, and both custom and open source software."
2. Let It Go
This lovely light show makes listening to this song for the thousandth time much more bearable! The Storms family lives in texas (hence the cactus,) and has been hosting light shows since 2010. Why? "We love Christmas lights, as simple as that." Kudos to the Storms for keeping their holiday extravaganza super green and economical- it only costs $6 in electricity to run the show all season!
3. Holdman Christmas Lights
First of all, what a GORGEOUS house! Secondly, we love the choice of music! The Holdman's 150,000-light musical display is entirely wind-powered by Blue Sky Renewable Energy from a nearby wind farm. It takes hours upon hours to design, set up, and take down the show- all in the name of Christmas spirit!
