Tis’ the season to spread nerd joy across the galaxy! The holiday season is a prime time to mix the creativity put into decorations and gifts with a little bit of fandom love.

An Ode to Wars in the Stars
Every year, the most dedicated Christmas light fanatics take to ABC Network’s Great Christmas Light Fight to show off their insane light shows.

Every Thing Is Awesome With Waving Lights
There’s no surprise that someone took the inescapable “Everything Is Awesome” song from The LEGO Movie and coordinated it with tons of snowflakes and a random “singing” cactus. The blinding light show also features a row of decorative trees that light up individually and change color throughout the song. Everything is indeed awesome about this show.
The Wizards of Winter
This house is an oldie but goodie that started the trends. Choreographed with the popular system Light-O-Rama and set to “Wizards In Winter” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra, this display slowly reveals more lights as the song progresses. And, what nerd doesn’t love this addictive song?
The Man of Steel’s Greatest Hits
This carefully constructed home display is every Superman fans dream. While this display seems to focus less on an exorbitant amount of lights and more on the spotlights and shadows to give off an epic feel to the various songs of the Man of Steel. The best part about this display is Superman theme – the front of the home is flooded in blue and red.
