I love when people take the time to go all out for Christmas. And although this song is now ridiculously annoying, the light show itself is pretty damn awesome.
It’s not quite a Christmas song, but when I heard it in August, I figured it would be a fun song to synchronize my lights to. Many all-nighters and even more gray hairs later, our show is finally running. This is the 5th and final song in our 3rd annual light show this year. 384 channels controlling over 60,000 LEDs, plus a few incan.
If you like the song,

This was eloquently titled “How To Traumatize Your Friend For Life”
Just yesterday with my parents we were discussing this exact issue. My mom, who works at a National bank, can no longer wish people a ‘Merry Christmas‘ in case it offends them. The tree lighting that was referred to as a ‘Holiday Tree Lighting’ was viewed as a way to attack the Christians, their faith and the meaning behind Christmas when in fact it was just a way for everyone to be included in the celebration.
I’m an Atheist so when it comes down to it, I do not believe in Jesus nor do I want to praise and give thanks to something or someone who I feel is about as mythical as Santa Clause. Although, I have grown up celebrating Christmas and come to love it whole-heartedly. For me, Christmas is not about religion, but about being with friends and family, embracing the cold weather and taking time to appreciate the little things like taking joy in giving to others. Sadly I believe that the religious aspect is insignificant seeing as most people either feel the way I do on the Holiday no longer representing Jesus; But I also don’t agree with the greed aspect of corporations trying to capitalize on the Holiday and taking advantage of people during a season that represents love, compassion, selflessness, and respect.
I am an atheist. I love Christmas. I love my friends. I love my family. And instead of getting irritated or feeling attacked because people won’t allow you to say something or you are saying the wrong thing to them, just remember that the fact they acknowledged you at all and extended kindness was a gift in itself. If it wasn’t your birthday, you believed it wasn’t your birthday, and a stranger had just said ‘have a great birthday’ before walking off, you would not feel that they were being malicious and attacking your religious beliefs or intentionally trying to offend you, would you? No. They were trying to be nice without actually knowing your intricate background, including: religion, morality, political views, etc.
It’s the HOLIDAY SEASON…just be happy, be nice, respect and be kind to anyone and everyone. Life’s too short. Especially if you’re an atheist and believe this is your ONE life. Nothing more

Cops in Vandalia, north of Dayton, say Terry Trent, 44, was high on the designer drug when he broke into a family’s home, put up some Christmas decorations and then plopped down on a couch to watch television, local station WHIO reported.
Tamara Henderson has an 11-year-old son who lives in that home with her, and received a call from the boy shortly after he found the high ass intruder lounging on their couch. She was at a neighbor’s house at the time and was able to call 911 after asking her son some questions.
She said, “What do you mean a man is in our house? You don’t know if he has a gun or if he has a knife?” the station reported.
Trent was simply looking for a good place to just lay low and enjoy being high. Usually you do this in places you’re familiar with, but either way he was arrested without any incident.
“The candle was lit on the coffee table, the television was on and very loud,” she told the station.
“He had said to [my son] ,’I'm sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I’ll get my things and go.”
A respectful drug using intruder. Crazy.

So I saw this video thanks to a friend of mine, and had to watch every episode she has made. It seems slow to start, but the more drunk she gets, the better the video is. Watch all the way through, I’d be willing to bet you laugh.
