This is my old display – here’s the new: If you’re in Tracy, CA, come see it in person: Feel free to bring some cash for the donation box (I am using the light show to raise money for our local homeless shelter, the McHenry House). As always, please like, share, and subscribe! Click “SHOW MORE” for more information! I find it funny that people say things like, “what does this have to do with Christmas?” In all reality, what do any of our traditions have to really do with Christmas? There were no lights or even a tree to decorate when Jesus was born. I do this because it brings families together to enjoy something for free while raising thousands of dollars for those who are need. Jesus said, “if you love me, obey my commands.” He told us to help those in need – and that’s why I do it and that’s what I think Christmas is really about. Since 99% of the lights are LEDs, the electricity to run the show for the entire month is about $100. I sequenced the show using LOR, mixed the music/sound effects with Digital Performer, and filmed it using a 35′ lift 🙂 This is now my second year decorating. I built all the props using wood, metal, acrylic and corrugated plastic. I am a music/teacher director for a living (COVA Conservatory in Oakland and Centerville Presbyterian Church in Fremont), hence the massive instruments! If you look closely (especially during the Cantina song) the instruments are playing the real notes! Although the beams are powerful up close, they are a small percentage of real searchlights and are so widely dispersed that by the time they are up in the sky, they don’t interfere with aircraft etc. The guitar is 17′, the piano is 19′ and the drums are standard. About 12,500 channels running around 100,000 lights. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Dude, how do you even do this?? I struggle to hand lights on the edge of the roof and you have a whole lightshow going on. Complete with voices for the choir parts of the epic music! Insanity. Made all the more epic with the star wars score by John Williams. You make everybody else’s decorations look like child’s play, seriously. Bow down to the light side master.

    Soooo cool. I love the music in Star Wars and those lights are so amazingly done. I’ve always dreamed of cool lights like this but my dad has always been lazy about Christmas lights. All of the music from those movies is awesome and gives me so many feelings. I just wonder how much it costs to run this, haha!

    Those lights look very cool wow! Imagine if my house flashed like that in Christmas colors? I bet I would probably get a bunch of reports for seizure activity and what not from incoming drivers sadly haha!
