I’d never heard the poem A Soldier’s Silent Night until I found this video while searching YouTube for videos of Christmas lights set to music. I am so glad that I found this. It touched my heart in a way few things have in a long time.
Although we have no family members actively serving our country now, we’ve had plenty in the past. Thank you to all men and women who give of themselves and to their families who make it possible for them to serve our country to protect us and our freedom wherever they may be called to go. Merry Christmas!
This Christmas light display is more traditional than the others I’ve posted. It’s not set to music and covers the family’s yard instead of focusing mainly on the front of the house. They’ve built a nice walking path through it, and encourage people to take the tour.
The video is short, but I love the more traditional feel to the display. It reminds me more of the kinds of lights I’d see around here if I could get out and about more.
Nothing puts a smile on my face quite like riding around looking at all the Christmas lights. I can’t get out and do it like I used to, which makes me sad. But now we have YouTube, and let’s face it, you can find pretty much anything you want on YouTube. So, it’s time for some Christmas cheer, and in the true fatchick fashion, my first entry pays homage to the redneck in me and all of us. These lights are set to Dueling Banjos.
Now if you know the song, you know it starts off slow. Just stick with it because when it speeds up, the light show gets really good. Enjoy!
