As every year, the Christmas Holidays are fast approaching this year too. And very soon, the most unique Christmas decorations will start to come out. We can see several varieties of Christmas Displays out there. Some are classy, and some are plain tacky as well. But some other displays are incredible enough to inspire everyone to visit them yearly. The static, twinkling lights of yesterdays have gone high-tech now. And people now use modern musical extravaganzas with synchronized lighting effects to produce dazzling and awesome displays. Christmas animation enthusiasts from around the globe are doing their best to choreograph the best Christmas lights ever than before. But some people have installed the best and craziest Christmas Lights decoration in their houses.
Take a look at my favorites and 10 of the most popular Christmas Decorations from years past. Just imagine how delightful would that be to enjoy the tens of thousands of colorful and music-synchronized Christmas Lights decoration.

Vic Moszczynski had even caused controversy with his extravagant Christmas decorations in the year 2005.

His installation attracted thousands of visitors to his home and was able to raise £55000 for the charity of bereaved children.

2. Alex Goodhind Christmas Lights
Electrician Alex Goodhind of Melksham, United Kingdom, has taken a month off work to string up his Christmas Lights. The unbelievable shine of his Christmas lights is capable of bedazzling any visitors. He installs 115000 bulbs on his home annually and raises money for local hospice care. However, the cost of light installation has already crossed £30,000; he is continuing his decoration every year.
1. The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights
One of my favorite parts of the Christmas Décor is The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This light installation perhaps is the biggest and the brightest Christmas Lights ever. It is even rumored to be visible from space! The Osborne Family light display became so obnoxious to all neighbors that the State Supreme Court shut it down. But, Disney got to know about this display and purchased it from Osborne. Now, we can see the incredible Christmas display in Florida.
Final Conclusion: These Christmas Light Installations will win you over, no doubt. But there’s an environmental price to pay as well. According to the Energy Saving Trust of the United Kingdom, the modest indoor Xmas-tree lights, if burned for 10 hours a day, will cost about £15 million yearly and generate a vast amount of carbon dioxide too. So, to be eco-friendly with Christmas Light Installations, LED displays are advisable. Many people are already adopting eco-friendly Christmas Light Installation practices. I hope people will come up with the best of the best light decorations in the Christmases to come.
