Holiday decorations have become a staple tradition for most households across the globe. But, like anything that starts out simple, some people take it to the next level. In true Clark Griswold fashion, hundreds of people go above and beyond the call of duty. This results in some of the most insanely cool moving lights displays ever. We've compiled a selection of some of our favorites over recent years.
This South Dakota home saw cars lining up for nearly two hours to see the lights, according to the YouTuber. After the family moved in 2012, the lights were moved to the Western Mall in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. It raises $25,000 yearly for children's foundations. [Source: SVO4Turbo's channel]
These sparkling lights inspired by Disney's Frozen were featured on ABC's Great Christmas Light Fight as well as Good Morning America. The mastermind works as a music instructor, which served as the inspiration for the massive instruments seen in the video. He didn't just stop at Frozen, however. This year's display? A Harry Potter-themed winter wonderland.
There's definitely some witchcraft used to make those lights so spectacular. The video, posted two days ago, has only garnered 4,000 views at the time of this writing. However, we're sure this display will go just as viral as the previous two years. [Source for both above videos: Tom BetGeorge]
And because we can't "let it go," here's another Elsa-fied display. However, this one stands out for its eco-friendly nature. According to the creator, it only cost $6 in electricity for the entire season. That's incredible. [Source: listentoourlights]
If you're looking for something non-traditional but still just as dope, check out this dubstep light show. The creators have raised over $23,000 for local charities as a result of their lights. [Source: Delaney Christmas]
Sure, there are plenty of Star Wars light displays. However, this one from Lights on Pascolo in Minnesota didn't just use the Lucasfilm audio and sound effects. It artfully told the Christmas story in the most epic and adorable way possible. The Star Wars introduction breaks away into other tech remixes of holiday classics. If that still sounds too traditional for you, don't worry. The same house also put on an incredible tribute to the late international artist Prince. [Source: Lights on Pascolo]
Speaking of Prince tributes...
This incredible tribute features one of the best mixes of Prince music we've heard in a very long time. It's a great way to remember the artist. [Source: Marek Janik]
This last video goes above and beyond to capture these lights - literally. This drone footage gets some insane shots of these lights done by the Preston family in Arizona. The show is short, sweet, and absolutely incredible. [Source: DarkSkyWatcher74]
