Peace on Earth…

Eddie & I want to wish everyone a

Joyous Holiday Season
and a
A Happy & Healthy 2009

As I wrote in my last post, we spent last week at Disney World. A holiday feature at the Disney Hollywood Studios is the Osmond Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights. The streets of the park backlot are festooned with a display of 5,000,000 lights. From dusk, until the park closes, the lights "dance" to holiday music as "snow" falls from the sky. It truely is Disney magic. Expand the post to see more of the display.

When I first heard about the display I thought it had something to do with Donny & Marie Osmond. It doesn't. The Osmond family is from Little Rock, Arkansas, and, according to a post on the website, the family's display started with 1,000 lights in 1986 and by 1993 the display had grown to 3,000,000 lights. As could be expected, neighbors complained and Arkansas Supreme Court forced the Osmonds to dismantle the display. Disney and Kodak to the rescue. An expanded display is presented at Disney World every Christmas.
