Kevin Cook’s Computer Controlled Christmas

Kevin Cook’s Computer Controlled Christmas is probably the last house on our tour of Charlotte-area Christmas lights. And this is another great display of Christmas lights. In fact, I believe we might have saved the best for last. Unlike the house on Mammoth Oaks, Kevin’s house does not have the extra items like roller-coasting penguins. But what Kevin lacks in figurines he greatly makes up for in awesome computer-choreographed lights.

Kevin has seven songs choreographed with his Christmas lights. Most of the songs are catchy dance/techno versions of their traditional counterparts. A few of the songs on his playlist are Jingle Bells, Carol of the Bells, Music Box Dancer, and Amazing Grace. Credit also goes to Kevin for resisting the temptation to include the Christmas lights default song, Wizards in Winter by Trans-Siberian Orchestra.

You will notice in some of the videos that Kevin is standing outside of his house while people are watching the lights show.  He seems more than happy to hang out and chat with the people coming to see the lights.  Each year Kevin takes donations for a charity and this year he is taking donations for A Child’s Place.

His house is located on Honeynut Drive in Charlotte, NC and the lights are on display until January 1.

Here are some videos that we took of his house. The videos do not do the light show justice, but I hope they give you a glimpse of what Kevin offers.

  1. Saw the lights and couldn’t believe how amazing! My husband and I took his 85 year old mother back the next night…she was delighted! I took a video with my camera and just finished showing it to my step daughter…she thought it was so beautiful! If I lived in the neighborhood, I’d park on the street every night, wrap up in a blanket and watch the lights from 6pm to ending! I hope this is a yearly tradition! Congratulations, Kevin!

    • Brenda, I completely agree with you. We would have a complete system set up if we lived in Kevin’s neighborhood. That way we could view it almost every night. 🙂

      It is one of our Christmastime traditions also. We drive around looking at lights. Kevin’s is by far the best and coolest.
