When I first saw this video, I was thinking ….
Some people just have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on their hands … but I’m glad they documented it and made a video so everybody can enjoy what all the hard work they did!

READ ABOUT THE ORIGINAL SOURCE OF THIS VIDEO
Origins: A video clip (viewable here or here) shows home Christmas lights synchronized to flash in time to a musical score, in this case Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “Wizard in Winter” (from The Lost Christmas Eve album).
This display was the work of Carson Williams, a Mason, Ohio, electrical engineer who spent about three hours sequencing the 88 Light-O-Rama channels that controlled the 16,000 Christmas lights in his annual holiday lighting spectacular (from Christmas 2004). His 2005 display includes over 25,000 lights that he spendy nearly two months hooking up. So that the Williams’ neighbors aren’t disturbed by constant noise, viewers driving by the house are informed by signs to tune in to a signal broadcast over a low-power FM radio station to hear the musical accompaniment.
The rough quality of the video has led some viewers to believe it was put together in stop-action form from still photographs, but that is an artifact of the high compression used in the clip circulated via e-mail. Mr. Williams has posted instructions for recreating his “Wizard in Winter” sequencing, and another of his choreographed Christmas light music shows can be viewed here.
