TUCSON, Ariz. — From a galaxy far, far away to a northside Tucson home Frank Morales has holiday cheer to spare.

For the past three years, Frank has planned elaborate light shows at his home. Neighborhood families come out, enjoy the lights, and even get a free cup of hot chocolate.

"When people come out here, I like to see the faces of the kids," Morales said. "Everybody's happy to see the bright lights."

This year, Franks goal was to have 100,000 individual lights.

"Each node has three pixels; red, green, and blue," Morales said.

Along with the lights, Morales sets up fog and snow machines to add the feeling of Christmas to the foothills.

Carly Cohen caught a glimpse of the show last week, and brought her kids back Monday night to see it all the way through.

"I told my husband, I took a video of it, and I said 'we've got to bring the kids back here,'" Cohen said.

The show starts every day after 6 p.m. until Christmas day. Frank Morales' home is located at 5056 N. Devotion Drive.
