I was talking with friends who came by last week dressed as elves to deliver holiday goodies and spend time catching up. It was a present in itself with a solo singing performance to boot. What I found interesting was what they were doing after leaving our house. "We're going to look at houses decorated with Christmas lights that are choreographed to music." Wait a minute, what did you say?
I must be out of the loop on Christmas lights but there are houses in the Colorado Springs area that have Christmas lights and a sign with a radio station in their front yard. When you drive up, turn your car radio to the station and the lights coordinate with the music. Wow - technology continues to amaze me.
Here is a list of house addresses that are participating this year. If you go please note most shut off their lights at 9:00 pm during the week and 10:00 pm on the weekend.
2570 Nadine Drive - radio station 93.5 FM)
6690 Barrel Race Drive - radio station 101.9 FM)
1263 Shrider Road - radio station 107.7 FM)
Houses (or areas) that are also well worth a drive by but as far as I know are just lights no music or radio station:
Old Broadmoor Road & Broadmoor Avenue
5222 Borrego Court
160 Clovercrest Drive
3148 Deergrass Place
Weber Street & East Caramillo
3565 Windjammer Drive
I would recommend mapping these because they are in more of a numeric or alphabetical order here vs area and it will save you from driving back and forth across town. I found it fun to make hot chocolate or hot cider and put it in to go cups to take along with some Christmas cookies for the trip.
