The Force is with this San Antonio Star Wars Christmas lights display

We’ve all gone out to look at Christmas lights and thought, “You know, I adore Christmas lights and I thrill to the ritual of striking very tiny electric candles in the darkness and draping them all over one’s house in a bid to celebrate bringing warmth to the dark nights....but you know what this could use? 

“Some Star Wars.”

Well, brothers and sisters, Matt Johnson (a light display professional) and his wife, of San Antonio, have you covered.

As reported in at, the Johnsons have broken out more than 15,000 lights organized in a Star Wars theme.

The couple don’t live in the Dignowity Park house -- his wife spotting the house while out on a run. As funny as it would be if they decorated the place without the homeowner’s permission, they did in fact get it before making it the most Star Warsy thing in town.

Johnson said neighbors and bystanders are more interested in an elaborate light display these days than a simple one.

Check out the display every night between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. until New Year's.
