EDMOND, Okla. -- 36-year-old Brad Stone is the creator of this dazzling residential Christmas light display that has become a wildly popular attraction in recent years.
"It combines all of my passions into one," Stone says. "It's also a month long celebration of the birth of Christ."
The display itself consists of a 9-x-15-foot high-definition video screen and roughly 20,000 lights decorating the house. Triggered completely by computer, the show runs automatically. Video images are provided by a 3,000-lumen projector that is rear-projected from inside the Stone family home. Audio is broadcast via a transmitter on 100.9 FM, allowing visitors to hear synchronized music while enjoying the show.
Given the cost (between $2,000 to $8,000 annually) and months of hard work involved, why does Stone do it?
"Well, we have four kids, so that right there is a great motivator," he says. "But we also love the community and state we live in. We look at this light display as one way to give back and provide something fun yet meaningful for families to experience together."
