HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

When the sun goes down, a Laurel home becomes a sight to see.

Over 40,000 Christmas lights and decorations create a synchronized light show.

“It is kind of went from small to what you see now,” said owner Cindy Moore. “It's for the love of Christ, and I want to share that with everyone and everybody to enjoy Christmas and just be happy.”

Thedecorr dances to the holiday jingles that are played over speakers in the yard.

“I have a program on my computer, and I have a wire that runs through my window from the boxes that I have. Each strand of light runs to a particular plug, and the plugs beats to the music,” said Moore. “The program allows me to download music, and then sets all of the lights to music.”

Moore said she has been working on the display since September. She made most of the decor herself.

“A lot of the arches and Christmas trees are made out of PVC pipe, and the stars are made out of wood.”Moore said.

The 45 minute show is free of charge. Moore said that she does it for others to enjoy.

“I actually had a lady that called me who had a heart attack a few years ago. She is homebound, but her husband saw my lights and went and got her,” said Moore. “They sat outside and watched my lights and she told me she loved it.”

She said people drive by or even sit on blankets across the street to enjoy the show.

The light show is from 5-10 p.m. at 459 Matthews Rd. in Laurel from Sunday through Thursday. On Friday and Saturday the show is from 5-11 p.m.

The show will continue until the first of the year.
