    Christmas in denver area


    Hoping to light up some folks holidays with our show.Last year we thought maybe we could get CNN to come on out and do a little story on our Xmas light display which had 32000 led lights synced to christmas music totaling 16 holiday songs. We like many folks have been hit by the down turn in the housing market and morgage crisis. We lost our house due to the owner not paying his morgage and the bank not accepting the short sale offer . We had to move next door into a house we didnt really like much.However there is good news for the holidays weve added even more lights and almost doubled the songs the led lights are synced too .37000 l.e.d. christmas lights in 4 colors snyced to 28 xmas songs . 203 extension cords all plugged into 4 computer controled power boxes powered by a computer and a low bandwith fm radio transmiter. If you come out to see the show tune into 101.7 Total show time is around an hour and ten min. My husband was like a little scrouge trying to wire this new house thats hidden from all main roads now, but it was worth it when folks said they were looking for it all year to him hoping he would put it up again. The house is harder to see unless you know were to look from local streets.Hopefully CNN can help let more folks localy find us as well as spread some cheer on the internet thru CNN.com .Below is list of the songs the lights are synced too.
