When I think about decorating for a holiday, my mind instantly goes to Christmas, with the warm glow of the Christmas tree, the garland around the stair railing and the sparking lights and reindeer outside. However, more and more people are decorating for other holidays as well, Halloween in particular. Most often this comes in the form of pumpkins on the steps, a bale of hay, some mums, or perhaps a blow-up jack-o-lantern or witch on the front lawn. Of course, there are the select few that take holiday décor to the next level and I have found a prime example of that.
Check out the video below, which has now gone viral, featuring a Leesburg, VA house decorated with over 8,500 lights and roughly 250 channels of computer animation. In simple terms, that means that the festive lights are synchronized to music, in this case, Gangnam Style by Psy.
This house is not the first, and certainly not the last, to go over the top with Halloween spirit. In 2011, a video of a Riverside, California home went viral. It showcased four singing pumpkin faces, tombstones, hand carved pumpkins, strobe lights, flood lights and thousands of LED lights all synchronized to the Party Rock Anthem. This same house had their display harmonized to Thriller by Michael Jackson in a 2010 video.
I don’t know about the surrounding neighbors of these creative people, but I surely would not want to live next to any of these houses! Nonetheless, with six days left before Halloween, watching these videos always puts me in the right spirit for the holiday!
