A Skrillex Christmas and Ten Other Outrageous Light Displays Synched With Crappy Music

For Crossfade, Holiday spirit consists of little more than a pair of reindeer boxer shorts and a couple of gag gifts.

Decorating? That's an upper-middle class game, the type of shit you find in gated communities 'round suburbia. It's for people with way too much free time on their hands and a hard-on for YouTube hits.

But these days, a strand of half-burnt holiday lights stapled sloppily along the roof ain't worth shit. On the eve of 2012, it's all about synchronizing thousands of flashing LEDs to extremely obnoxious music.

Check out ten examples of outrageously spirited homes from around the web.
