    This didn’t download correctly, at least for me.

    Yes, there is no image or clip.

    My first thought was “wazzat?” It didn’t download here, either.

    Well, most of my childhood, October 31st was a state holiday. This year we have October 31st off.

  • Chrysla October 24, 2014, 12:27 pm

    Nope – I didn’t get it either.

  • Anonymous October 24, 2014, 3:31 pm

    Yeah, same.

    Love it!

    Video in the post says it’s not available. Maybe this link would be better?

    This is FANTASTIC!

  • Daphne October 25, 2014, 2:13 pm

    This is obnoxious. I feel so sorry for their neighbors.

  • Noodle October 25, 2014, 5:34 pm

    I love that song and that light show!

    I love this display! It is one of my favorite You-Tube videos. The creator of the display has another video showing the miles of electrical cords hooked up to a computer. If anyone here is concerned about noise, the soundtrack is broadcast on a small transmitter, like the ones some realtors use to advertise homes. You tune it in on your car radio.

      Aha! I wondered about that. I think this is totally cool.

  • NostalgicGal October 25, 2014, 11:55 pm

    Serious amount of work and timing there; to set that all up. Absolutely Kewl!!!!! (means it rocks as well as being ‘cool’)

    What fun! Although our Halloween light decorations are not as elaborate as this, we have found that having the additional light in our yard has actually made it a bit safer for the kids. We have several small steps that lead from our drive way, up the sidewalk and on to porch. For several years, because of the low amount of light, kids kept tripping. Putting rope lighting up against steps made the kids notice the steps and lighted the pathway. We also had a problem with kids running through one of our flower beds. My husband just laid down some lights in the bed and now the kids walk around. And best of all, the kids seem to really like the lights and enjoy them.

    Yes, this is halloween all right! LOL! 3 year old DD LOVED this and calls it the “scary singing house – but I’m not scared” video. 🙂

  • Library Diva October 27, 2014, 12:44 pm

    Very cool! There is a guy in my hometown who does something similar for Christmas.

  • Liz October 27, 2014, 1:09 pm

    I think this and the guy who did the TSO Carol of the Bells are amazing. I wouldn’t be able to do something so elaborate on my own, so I like looking at other works.

    I do feel a small bit sorry for the people driving by because they might have gotten glare from it? I don’t know about that though. The little girl running out of the house was well timed too.

    Ludicrous, childish, overdramatic in the most hammy way possible, and probably using as much electricity as a small European country with no thought to the carbon footprint. I agree with the PP who said it was obnoxious. Imagine having to live opposite such a horror.

    • admin October 27, 2014, 4:52 pm

      Almost all exterior lights nowadays are LED which uses a mere fraction of the electricity of incandescent bulbs.

  • KenderJ October 27, 2014, 5:29 pm

    My son & daughter-in-law love this guy. My favorite is the pumpkins. My son tells me that he only plays it twice: for the dress rehearsal, which he films, and during trick-or-treat. Maybe the neighbors. Don’t mind it too much, considering.

  • Michelle October 28, 2014, 12:06 pm

    Much better than blood & gut decorations, but I can see this getting on the neighbor’s nerves. Pretty cool otherwise.

    I’ll add, I could stand 5 or so hours of this one night a year, living next door or across from it. Note ONCE A YEAR. They have their fun, there’s a reason, I understand.

    (recently had an entire afternoon and evening of massive amounts of screaming small kids next door, looked, oh, they rented a bouncy house for one of the kids’ bdays. Put on the ‘ignore’ for the day and have some understanding.)

    One year I had condo in 3 story facing a Victorian who put about 15,000 strings of Christmas lights up and were one of the houses on the limo and bus tours for about a month. LOTS of traffic through our street and with the ice, no fun. First floor took garbage bags and ‘built’ a pair of sunglasses with one lens over most of their living room window as the passive reply to the display. This too, passed. You could read a newspaper in my living room if I opened my drapes and blinds all night (no they didn’t turn them off until daylight).
