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.

"First of the Year (Equinox)" - Skrillex

With 35,000 LEDs womp-womping around the Christmas tree, this Idaho home is an epileptic's nightmare.

"I am the Best" - 2NE1

Everything is bigger in Texas, including December's electricity bill.

"Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" - Daft Punk

This family worked harder, better, faster, stronger than anyone else on the block to ensure their home became raver Christmas central.

"Sandstorm" - Darude

Want to know the difference between techno and house? This song.

"Wizards in Winter" - Trans-Siberian Orchestra

This is a Trans-Siberian nightmare. All we want for Christmas is to never hear these prog rockers again.

"Enter Sandman" - Metallica

Merry Christmas ... From Hell!

"Boom Boom Pow" - Black Eyed Peas

This is what two white houses dancing to BEP looks like.

"Hey Soul Sister" - Train

We want to shake this pile of bricks by the fucking chimney. Of all the songs they could've picked, "Hey Soul Sister"? Christmas blows.

"Bad Romance" - Lady Gaga

Rah-rah-ah-ah-ah-ah, Roma-roma-mamaa. Sorry, that's the sound of us puking into our stocking.

"Dueling Bajos" - Arthur "Guitar Boogie" Smith

It's a redneck Christmas! Yee-haw!

Bonus Halloween-Slash-Christmas Display

"This Is Halloween (Dubstep Mix)" - Mr. BitCrusha

To quote YouTuber DJSKUNTBAG, "This dude goes hard on Halloween decor."

Happy Holidays from Crossfade.
