You called it:

Lights Out for the Griswold Family Christmas
Wednesday, December 07, 2005

Sometimes your huge, crazy, dancing holiday light display can be a little too popular.

Cops asked a Deerfield Township, Ohio, man who covered his house with 25,000 Christmas lights rigged to dance when holiday music plays to pull the plug on the display after a car wreck Tuesday night, according to Cox News Service.

Carson Williams, the owner of the house, told police he would turn off his holiday decorations indefinitely.

As earlier reported in Out There, Williams spends nearly two months hooking up the 25,000 lights and programming them to dance — hundreds of cars drive by his house north of Cincinnati every night to see the display, which also is posted online.

Sheriff's deputies couldn't reach the scene of the accident because of the cars lined up on his neighborhood streets, Williams told a local Cincinnati TV station.

"He told us if we start having traffic problems that he would shut the display down for a while," Warren County sheriff's Lt. Ed Petrey told Cox News Service.


Williams' holiday light show drew national media coverage because the 25,000 lights are synched by computer with music beamed to car radios.

"I do a frosty song, 'God Bless the USA,' and then 'Wizards of Winter,'" as the three songs in the 12-minute show, Williams told Cincinnati's Local 12 News.

Around 7:30 p.m. near Williams' dancing-light display, two cars collided but there were no injuries.

"I told the neighbors, I told the sheriff, if they get any complaints, I'll shut it down, because the neighbors are more important to me than the Christmas lights," Williams said on NBC's "Today" show on Monday.

For now, Williams' eccentric light show will only be viewable on the Internet, motorists have been lining up between 6 and 10 p.m. since the display kicked off the week of Thanksgiving.

Williams, an electrical engineer, says he spent about $10,000 on his dancing Christmas lights.





Looks like they have shut down that crazy Christmas display.

He spends $10,000 and two months and then has to shut it down because people don't know how to drive? Ridiculous.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
