    25,000 Angry Christmas Lights


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     jstorms shares with us the amazing christmas lights display he designed at his home in Austin, Texas. He says a light display like this is a year round hobby for him, with tasks such as stocking up with lights during after-holiday sales and of course designing and programming the show.

    While his friends and family think he's a little OCD, jstorms 'just [loves] Christmas lights.' He says they 'give the holiday that "ahhh" factor.'

    'Basically you have christmas lights that are plugged into Christmas light controllers that are connected to a computer. The computer is also connected to a low-powered, hobbiest FM transmitter so people can hear the lights from their cars. Each show consists of musical sequences, which are programmed by hand. Each song takes 2-4 hours to program.'

    About putting up Christmas lights before Thanksgiving, he says: 'My mom was always into Christmas lights, always sneaking up the decorations way too early, and it stuck.'
