One Texas man decided to give a special Christmas gift to his co-worker and neighbor by paying tribute to his favorite college football team.
Every year, John Storms assembles an incredible light display in his front yard with its own unique theme. Previous years have been themed around the Disney film Frozen and the viral hit "Gangnam Style."
When it was time to brainstorm what this year's display would be centered around, Storms chose "Yea Alabama," the Crimson Tide fight song. The strange choice was meant to be a nod to his co-worker Roger, who is a huge Alabama football fan. Being an Alabama fan in Texas brings a lot of ridicule and teasing, so Storms hopes that this unique gift will bring a bit of joy to Roger, who lives just a few houses away.
Rogers says that the display is made up of 25,000 LED lights. The entire show, for the entire season costs well under $15," he told AL.com. "In 2014, our electric bill for October and November was higher than it was for December."
