In the beginning this amazing fellow created his own sequence to the Trans-Siberian Orchestra's amazing smash hit, Wizards of Winter.
The video itself went on to become a smash hit. Visitors from all over would drive to see the spectacle themselves. News stations featured it on the air. It has even appeared in a television commercial. But the bulk of views come from various posts of it on the YouTube video site.
Since then many many people have created various light shows. Commercial drive kits have even been developed now so that anyone with a little creativity, some cash, and lots of time can buy one and create similar displays on their own home.
Following are some of my all time favorite displays:
Another wonderful Trans-Siberian Orchestra hit, Appalachian Snowfall:
