ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WAAY-31)- It starts with a click of a mouse, then you plug in the cord, and you’ve got a Christmas light show in you own front yard.
Benny Frazier deserves to bask in the glow of his Christmas lights. He worked on setting up his elaborate light display for over a month.
“Still even as a kid I remember going by and looking at Christmas lights and how much I enjoyed them,” Frazier said.
Frazier is relatively new to the world of extravagant Christmas lights. After April 27th, his densely wooded front yard changed forever.
“My wife and I were talking and she made the comment, ‘well, it would be a good time to make lemonade out of lemons. So that is basically what we have done. We cleaned the front up and now you can see our house from the road, so we decided to put on the light show.”
Frazier says his ‘lemonade’ takes a lot of effort, time and organization- but it’s worth the hard work. Every wire and light has its place.
“You have to have a lot of extension cords…just tons of extension cords,” Frazier said.
Two-thousand feet of cord to be exact. And his show requires over 60,000 lights.
If you want to try making you own light show next Christmas, Frazier suggest using the program Light-O-Rama.
“Oh’ this would be very easy for anyone to do,” Frazier says with a wink and a smile.
