LED Christmas Light display

I have strict rules regarding Christmas Lights – They are not to be turned on until the Day after Thanksgiving. They can remain lit up at night until January 07, the day after the Epiphany. In the time frame, they should be lit up from sundown until midnight at the latest, which in most parts of the country, equals about 6 hours. Those are my rules, follow them or feel my wrath.
Some places, specifically businesses don’t follow them so that they can get more business, and make more money. Like this Japanese Theme park which recently lit up 4.5 million LEDs for their Christmas display:

That looks like a pretty awesome looking LED tunnel to walk through.  In fact, I would love to walk through that, hell, I think I would love to have that in my house.  Damn, why not hook it up with the interactiveness of my LED Table, and man, that would be pretty fucking sweet!

This field of LEDs though in red white blue and yellow though doesn’t look so interesting, this setup outside a house looks somewhat better:

You know what all three of those pictures have in common though?  None of them look remotely Christmasy.  At all.  No red and green. No Santa, no snowmen, no candles, no Nativity, nothing to even suggest that it’s Christmas, just s bunch of lights.

Also, there is clearly alot missing from the classic American Christmas Light set up, specifically sun faded plastic molded works of art lit by 60watt bulbs in a 20watt socket.

Also, this guy wins for the coolest Christmas lights display ever. Period. I love it, even though it’s missing plastic things, it’s still pretty amazing.

    Daaaaamn that tunnel is awesome! They should make wallpaper like that... I wonder how much electricity it takes for all those LED's though.

    That neighbor would drive me CRAZY with all those flashing lights! - ALso, LEDs cost almost nothing to run - they save incredible amounts of energy - everyone should switch. I am also a huge pusher on battery operated LEds - use way less battery life, so batteries also last longer. Now you can even buy LED Christmas Trees! http://www.christmaslightsetc.com/LED-Christmas-Trees--844.htm
