Christmas lights have come a long way since the days of “one bulb burns out, they all burn out.”
You can see how far displays have come by visiting www.komar.org, a Web site created by Alek Komarnitsky of Lafayette, Colo. Visitors can control the lights on the house and the inflatable decorations in his front yard and watch it on Web cams. The Web site is free, but he’s also raising money for a good cause: research for Celiac Disease. More information is on the Web site.
