But some people think take their holiday decorating to a whole new level.


It used to be just plug-and-play, but with new  computerized channels and a McMansion mentality, some Christmas lovers think you've got to go big, banging, and bright to show your holiday spirit.

Certain illuminati have taken the Yuletidal wave of holiday lights off the grid – and when we says grid, we’re talking the electrical grid.

These range from the classic home such as one decorated as a tribute to the “Grinch Who Stole Christmas” to another home who went all out with an awesome dubstep remix.


Some homes have gone interactive. This owner made his display interactive where you grab a slingshot and play Angry Birds.

While it's an awesome show for passersby and websurfers, some neighbors go Grinchy at the lookie-loo log-jams.   The guy who created the “Sexy and I Know It” light show last year was shut down by the HOA for turning Maple Street into Electric Avenue.

Every neighborhood has one house that goes light wild, but now a national landmark has joined the carol of craziness. The Empire State building got an LED light makeover and premiered their own holiday light show with what else, Alicia Keyes and Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind."
