That’s at the same house where hundreds enjoy Skeleton Theater every Halloween season. Maia sent the photo and info: “We have synchronized our Christmas lights to music this year! The lights are programmed to a variety of different Christmas Carols and the synchronized show runs nightly from about 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The lights will still be on after 9:00 pm, but without the music and synchronized programming.” (36th SW/SW Hanford)
We’ll be spotlighting neighborhood lights nightly for the rest of pre-Christmas week – know of something special? firstname.lastname@example.org – thanks!
