Jennings Osborne was determined to bring a massive display of Christmas spirit to his Arkansas hometown in the form of the biggest, brightest light display ever on his house. His neighbors didn't share his enthusiasm, but luckily his display found a new home at Walt Disney World many years ago.
If you haven't see the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights yet this year, or if you want to see it again, you have all the way until January 5. The lights turn on when darkness falls at Disney's Hollywood Studios, so you can take your time strolling around, enjoying the music and choreographed "dancing," and searching for the elusive black cat that's hidden among the decorations each year.
The light display is included with your regular admission ticket. It can get very crowded, especially in the early part of the evening, so stick around until just before park closing and wander back for a more leisurely view. Click the video accompanying this article to see one of the songs.
The Osborne Lights are just one of several holiday attractions that stick around past Christmas. Check out this list for several others.
