Some Christmas traditions have to wait until next year, so we’re leaning extra hard into the ones we can enjoy right now. Whether it’s a full month of Elf on the Shelf chaos or completely decking out your house to reflect your passion for the season, there’s no shortage of ways to make this holiday feel festive.
Extravagant light displays are a long-standing tradition, allowing Christmas-lovers to both show off their technical prowess and their love for Star Wars. Often, the inspiration for these next-level light displays come from unexpected yet familiar places, and this Mandalorian light show is no exception.
While many light shows we’ve seen over the years smack you in the face with loud music and flashing lights right off the bat, this slightly more modest show pulls you in with elements that build on each other as the house seemingly comes to life.
The Mandalorian theme song begins to play, filling everyone who’s seen the show with immediate anticipation. The lights themselves, however, start off as barely a twinkle. The house remains completely dark for the first 30-something seconds of the video as the trees spell out “The Mandalorian” in a marquee-like display, but patient viewers are rewarded with a light show that won’t soon be forgotten.
The lights appear to dance along with the music – flashing, twinkling, and moving to the beat. As the song builds, so do the lights. The entire display has a very intergalactic vibe, reminiscent of a spaceship itself (or at least the way they’re depicted in sci-fi movies).
This Mandalorian Christmas light show is out of this world, and perhaps one of the most fitting themes for the season – I mean technically, both Christmas and The Mandalorian are centered around The Child.
