This 'Star Wars' Themed Light Show Sets the Bar for All Future Christmas Light Shows
By John Boone
No lightsabers were harmed in the making of this insane Star Wars light show. But Tom BetGeorge, a music teacher from Newark, Cali., did synchronize 100,000 Christmas lights to create the craziest Christmas display we’ve ever seen (that neighborhood who did it together doesn’t count — they had more houses to work with).
Maybe the most impressive part is this is only Tom’s second year doing this. This year, his house will take you on a musical journey through the entire history of Star Wars, from Phantom Menace to Return of the Jedi.
From there, it’s all out festive madness. The force is strong with this one:
“If you look closely (especially during the Cantina song) the instruments are playing the real notes!” Tom explains. “The beams can be seen for miles but I went out of my way to avoid shining the beams on houses and flight paths.”
