Welcome to the Downs Family Christmas Light Ministry
Well, we're finally going to have to officially close for the 2015-2016 season. The six inches of rain we received after Christmas simply hasn't gone away. Sorry to anybody that didn't make it out this season, but there's always next year!
Follow us on our Facebook fan page. We'll be updating it throughout the year with pictures and comments.
The song list for 2015 contains ten songs, plus our usual funky intermission. We don't list our songs for the new year before the show starts, so you'll just have to wait for this years playlist. Here is the playlist for 2015:
|Christmas With a Capital C||Go Fish|
|Wizards in Winter||Trans Siberian Orchestra|
|Christmas Eve Sarajevo||Trans Siberian Orchestra||Joy to the World||Go Fish||Jingle Bells||Cast of Glee|
|Run Run Rudolph||Hanson|
|Do You Hear What I Hear?||Spiraling|
|Dueling Jingle Bells||US Navy Band|
|O Holy Night||David Phelps|
|12 Days of Christmas||Relient K|
The intermission song is cool version of Hark the Herald Angels Sing by 11 Acorn Lane.
The background of the introduction is the first minute of Sleigh Ride by Relient K.
As always, every song we use can be downloaded from iTunes. We hope you buy the music and help support these awesome artists.
In 2011, we received a visit by the Ugandan Orphans Choir, an amazing group of kids from Uganda that travel the US singing and dancing, in hopes of raising awareness about the problems back home in their native Uganda. We hated to get them out on a cold night, but couldn't resist a picture.
We thought everybody might enjoy this video we made in 2010 while setting up one of the two giant trees. This is a time-lapse video that compresses two hours of work into two minutes. Enjoy!
