Lights switch on Christmas spirit

Lights switch on Christmas spirit
Allen and Alex Moczygemba delight passersby with their Christmas light display to music at their home on Jacobs Lane near La Vernia.

Wilson County residents don’t have to travel across the state to see one of the most impressive and creative Christmas light displays. Just take a drive to Jacobs Lane to enjoy a real holiday treat that’s hidden away in the La Vernia countryside.

Allen and Alex Moczygemba started this annual holiday tradition when they moved to La Vernia two years ago.

They have a spectacular light display at their residence at 541 Jacobs Lane. Allen’s hobby is radio and building radio controllers, and in October he begins setting up this Christmas light project that involves 35,000 lights. The display is ready to go on Thanksgiving Day.

He sets up a radio tower antenna in the middle of his yard with lights on it in the shape of a Christmas tree. The radio antenna broadcasts four Christmas songs on 98.1 FM over a 1-mile radius from his home. The lights flash and blink in various patterns in sync, choreographed to the beats and rhythm of the songs. To get the full impact, follow the directions to Jacobs Lane, tune into 98.1 FM, and enjoy an amazing display of Christmas spirit.

Allen and Alex plan to expand the project in the coming years to include more lights and get the neighbors involved in the display.

Songs the Moczygembas use for the display include three numbers by the “Trans-Siberian Orchestra”: “Wizards of Winter,” “Christmas Eve in Sarajevo,” and “Nutrocker,” along with “Music Box Dancer” by DJ Schwede.
