Christmas LightsCarson Williams from Mason, Ohio is noted for his homemade lightshows using Christmas lights fixed around and even on top of his house. The lights are programmed to turn on and off in synch with music using a computer application known as Light-O-Rama. For each minute of animation synchronized to music, he spent approximately 3 hours to sequence 88 Light-O-Rama channels to control his 16,000 Christmas lights. A popular clip (the clip that made him well-known) on the Internet in late 2005 shows a recording of one of his shows from 2004, accompanied by the track "Wizards in Winter" by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. -- Source Wikipedia
