SAN ANTONIO -- Christmas decorating isn't just about stringing lights on your house anymore. The Johnson family takes outdoor Christmas decorating to a whole new level with a 10-minute dubstep light show that has been featured on The Great Christmas Light Fight TV show.
The light show, which in previous years has used about 300 to 500 Christmas lights and 6,181 Pixels, is available for viewing throughout the Christmas season. The show is located at 14711 Burtons Oak, San Antonio, TX 78254. Just make sure to tune your radio to 94.7 to enjoy the entire experience.
Matt and Melissa Johnson have added custom-designed LED pixel snowflakes and wreaths to this year's display.
"The main reason that I do the light show is because of my kids. They are the age where they think it's so cool and their friends think it's cool" Matt Johnson said, "Their friends will come dance in the street."
This year, the Johnsons have taken their light show one step further by partnering with Living Water International to raise money to build wells for villages in Africa without access to clean water. On their YouTube page, Matt Johnson writes: "If you enjoy the show, would you consider donating to our 'Clean Water Challenge?' Any amount is appreciated!"
The Johnsons chose Living Water International because of their desire to help bring clean water to those in need and the reputation of the organization.
"The past several months, all she talks about is clean water and how many kids are dying from a lack of clean water," Johnson said of his wife Melissa, "She's already been wanting to do this and we're just extending it to the light show."
Johnson said Living Water provides long-term follow-up for the projects they do worldwide. "They wont just do something and then leave the village." he said.
Every night, the light show displays real-time donation information directly from Living Water International. "People are able to submit pledges via text message while they are watching the show and see real-time updates of each night's pledges," Johnson said.
Their goal is to raise $10,000 during the 2015 Christmas season. You can give to their campaign at: water.cc/johnsonlightshow
