Holiday Shenanigans

Atomic Powering Your Christmas Lights

Wow, shiney!

Lights and decorations are a mainstay of Christmas (or use Holiday Season if you want to empower the terrorists ).  Hanukkah even revolves around lights burning.  Must be something to do with the fact that I haven’t seen the sun in a month.  Let me help you, with a little help from the internets, Atomic Power your Christmas lights.

Step 1: Don’t be the people that buy a metric-shit-tonne of blowup decorations from Walmart.

There is a house in this picture.

You’re not making anybody think that you’ve got taste, talent or eyesight. Blinking lights don’t count either.  If I see another waterfall-like lighting setup, I will have to spend the night trying to shoot Santa Claus out of the sky to have a serious talk about what he’s going to do to fix Christmas.

Step 2: Find an awesome song.  Christmas music is ok… it is Christmas and all, but you need something that people haven’t heard and that has some movement to it.  No boring, minor-key songs.  I know, that’s most of the Christmas carols, but there’s got to be something.  Maybe by Twisted Sister or Bela Fleck.

Step 3: Make the lights match the music.  I don’t actually know how to do this so go HERE and they’ll help you.

Step 4: Realize that you don’t have that much time on your hands and just spend the holidays showing people this awesome clip.
