Video: Holiday light show has double meaning
On the Web
Check out this synchronized Christmas light show outside a Plymouth, Minn. home. The show features 40,000 lights set to music (which visitors can enjoy by tuning to the correct radio station).
The show is not only a spirited holiday display, it also is meant to remind the world about Parkinson's disease.
The display was designed, built and operated for the nonprofit Mike Justak Foundation for Parkinson’s disease by a Young Onset Parkinson’s patient, Mike Justak. Justak describes the show, on the website, saying, “The show’s name is tongue-in-cheek. Tremor is the most common symptom of the disease (Parkinson’s), and my lights shimmer and dance to remind the world that 1.25 million Americans are waiting for a cure.”
