Christmas Light Show
Christmas is just two days away, and many people have decked out their homes for the holidays.
One home in Alachua, is putting on a show for the community that you have to see to believe.
The mastermind behind this show says it's the only one of it's kind in the area.
It may look like your typical home with a few holiday yard decorations, but when the sun goes down, the magic happens.
Every night, for eight weeks straight,Â Bill Holmes turnsÂ his home into a synchronized musical light spectacular.
It's a twenty-two minute light show consisting of seven christmas songs. You pull up, tune in your radio, and enjoy.
More than 5,000 people stopped by to see it last year, and it seems to be just as popular now.
Many of you may be wondering how much it costs to keep more than 50,000 lights running.
"I estimate my electric bill only costs me between fifty to seventy five bucks, " says Bill Holmes.
Pretty cheap! Bill says people still offer to pay, but he says no way.
So not only doesn he act like Santa, he sports a beard like Santa.
You may not see him coming down the chimney, but you may just catch him on the roof, brightening up the community.
You have until January 11, 2008 to check out the show.
You can catch it every night from 6pm-11pm at 7904 Northwest 170th Street.
