Because it is only 3 days until Christmas and most people are spending time with family and friends, I wanted to share something with a holiday theme. The colder weather in Colorado this time of year means less roofing contracts with a pleasant hiatus from the craziness of last summer’s hail storm damage.
With this extra time, I chose to research the most amazing synchronized Christmas light displays on YouTube. I hope you enjoy them!
We all know that decorating for Christmas can be a little intimidating, especially if you are going for the complete indoor and outdoor holiday look. It is very rewarding when friends and neighbors appreciate efforts, and if you start early and pick a nice weekend it can actually be a lot of fun.
In the Denver metro area, it seems like the most fervent decorators are all located in clusters, which tells me it might be a bit of a competition to be the best Christmas display on their street.
However, I hope it has more to do with enjoying the beauty and warmth of the season. There is nothing more delightful than taking a drive to see the lights and colors but in this case, you can enjoy them from the comfort of your home:
Amazing how they synchronized the lights and the music! Hiring someone to do a basic job can cost several thousand dollars depending on the square footage of your home, whether you want trees and bushes included, and if you plan to provide the lights.
The type of decorating like in the above video is a whole other story. It requires sophisticated hardware, software and several months of design and planning, so you are looking at a much higher price.
Here are more unbelievable Christmas light displays:
I love decorating for the holidays, but I know a lot of people who would be like the house at the end of the video. It is a ton of work involved and then taking them down is almost depressing.
The title of the next video goes back to my original thought that it is definitely a competition for the best lights in the neighborhood:
On average, each person in the United States spends over $50 dollars on Christmas decorations each year, and that isn’t considering the extra money spent on electricity to run all the lights. However, it is part of the American tradition to go overboard on holiday spending.
The comments following the videos make you realize that not everyone thinks it’s cool to be excessive…but oh well. Just be safe when hanging lights and don’t become a statistic of people who get injured decorating at Christmas.
