WINNER OF THE GOOD MORNING AMERICA BIG BRIGHT HOLIDAY LIGHTS SHOWDOWN!

WINNER OF THE GOOD MORNING AMERICA BIG BRIGHT HOLIDAY LIGHTS SHOWDOWN!

“Belief creates the actual fact.” – William James 

This is a wonderful mix of Christmas and patriotism.  I just heard about this and thought there might be others who didn’t see this worthwhile display.  Thought  I’d pass it along.

The home of Derek and Courtney Whitis in South Wood, which has been drawing spectators to its colorful and musical light display for weeks, has won the Good Morning America Big Bright Holiday Lights showdown contest.

Selected from three national finalists, the best house was determined by votes on the show’s mobile app and Facebook page.

Their patriotic display in the 3600 block of Mossy Creek Lane has more than 100,000 LED lights and is the highlight of the neighborhood.The visual display is accompanied by a four-minute soundtrack that plays a portion of the song for each branch of the military.

About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
