Lights and music in syncopated animation

Published 8:02 pm Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Mike Sibley has taken decorating for Christmas a giant step forward.

He is a member of an organization called Planet Christmas. It is a group of people that love going “all out for Christmas”, that one house that everyone remembers for years down the line. Picayune, more specifically, North Hill, has just such a genius in residence.

It takes about 30 hours to computer program the lights with a three-minute song in animation and Sibley has about 10 songs in his display in North Hill. This is a year long project for him. The members of Planet support each other throughout the year to get ready for Christmas.

This glorious display will be up through Jan 7, so tune your radio to FM 91.1 and enjoy the songs and lights.
