It’s Halloween, and time to decorate. But while the rest of us put out a few jack-o-lanterns and witches, this man goes all out – putting on a professional quality light show that brings visitors from miles around.
Naperville, Illinois, homeowner Nick Thomas and his friend, Steve Jandick, spend all year planning the spooky decorations and sequencing the lights to songs such as Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” and Kongo’s “Come With Me Now.” The results, seen below, are nothing short of awesome.
Jandick told ABC News, “It’s my crazy hobby ha ha.”
“I do the light portion of it and Nick does all the decorations, so it’s the best of both worlds. The house is actually Nick’s, but my parents live next door,” he said. “I’ve been helping Nick do it for 15 years.”
The two hardcore Halloween fans start sequencing the lights for the next show right after Halloween, and work on it throughout the year. Every year the decorations start going up as a weekend project in September, taking the entire month.
It isn’t just two songs either. Thomas’ house features light shows set to AC/DC’s “Hells Bells,” Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” and other songs by artists as diverse as System of a Down and Katie Perry.
Yahoo News reports that the Halloween light show is a big attraction in the Chicago suburb and surrounding area, with around 3,000 and 4,000 people coming out on the weekends in October to see it.
“There’s something for everybody,” Jandick says.
Kind of makes you wish you lived closer to Chicago, doesn’t it?
