Our Story

UPDATE 10/13/2018: It has been a big year for us with the most significant event being the birth of our first child, Gabriel, who is now almost 2 months old. We are enjoying this new adventure and it is so cool to see him change and grow every single day.

Despite the upheaval of our previous lives, we are still planning on a brand new show this year. The music is ready to go and the light sequencing is in progress, though admittedly it’s a bit harder to find time to work on it than in years past. We will keep you updated here or on Facebook if anything changes, but as of now, we hope to put on another awesome show this year!

As always, feel free to Contact Us with any questions, suggestions, or advice for starting your own awesome light show!

We are Philip and Rose, a couple of young engineers with a love of travel, puppies, architecture, and lighting. We live in Broomfield, CO with our two dogs. In 2015, we began our Christmas lights adventure and have not looked back since!

Here’s this year’s show video. You can find videos from all of our previous years on YouTube (links and an embedded version are available here). If you like what you see, consider helping us share the joy of Christmas with others.

If you liked our show, consider taking a trip down to Stapleton to 3402 Trenton St., Denver. This is our favorite other light show in the Denver area and features lots of cool pixel lighting sequenced to about 30 minutes of music. For other cool displays in Broomfield and beyond, check out our Lights around the Neighborhood page.

We hope you will find this site enjoyable, informative, and perhaps even inspiring. Please take what you learn here and share it with others. The biggest compliment you could pay us for the work we have put in is to go make a cool lighting display of your own and share it with the world.

And, because lawyers exist, here is a disclaimer. Everything we have written on this website is based on our own experiences. We have not intentionally lied or misled about anything and, as far as we have seen, cool Christmas lighting can be a safe and fun hobby. That said, your life is your own responsibility. Please, please, please be careful when working with electricity and ladders and drill bits and sharp metal and soldering irons and all the other potentially hazardous aspects of this adventure. If you don’t know how to do something, get help from someone who does. We take no responsibility for your outcomes or safety based on you following what we have written here.

Okay, that’s out of the way. Let’s go have fun with Christmas lights! For the highlights of what is new this year, check out Our Christmas Light Display. For more detail than you thought possible about how we built all of this, check out The Gory Details.
