A video of an amazing, well-choreographed Xmas lights show has been making its rounds via email, and if you’ve missed it, have a look. I wasn’t really sure whether or not this was legit or not, as I thought there may have been some video editing. However, Snopes reports that this is an actual light display of a family in Mason, Ohio.
This display was the work of Carson Williams, a Mason, Ohio, electrical engineer who spent about three hours sequencing the 88 Light-O-Rama channels that controlled the 16,000 Christmas lights in his annual holiday lighting spectacular (from Christmas 2004). His 2005 display includes over 25,000 lights that he spendy nearly two months hooking up. So that the Williams’ neighbors aren’t disturbed by constant noise, viewers driving by the house are informed by signs to tune in to a signal broadcast over a low-power FM radio station to hear the musical accompaniment.
