Christmas light displays come in all shapes and sizes but few of them are as spectacular as one man's in eastern Iowa. What's more, it's pretty clear just how much this display means to him.

Three years ago, Brian Rubner lost his mom, Pam, who loved Christmas. Rubner always helped her decorate for the big holiday and when she passed away, he had an idea.

The idea has morphed into a must-see Christmas light display in Mechanicsville that is synchronized to music and gets bigger each year. Rubner just can't help himself and, when you see it, you understand why. We also need to give kudos to his wife, who lends a helping hand on the display, which is Brian's passion.

Rubner told KCRG his 37-minute display features a remarkable 75,000 pixels, along with between 85 and 90 props. He estimates it took "2,000 hours worth of time this year, hanging stuff, printing stuff and programming the lights." The printing is from a 3D printer in his garage and the work is really never done. Rubner put up almost 1,500 additional lights just last week.

The display is amazing to see and hear. Thanks to Kimberly Warren for allowing me to share her video below, which lets you watch about 3-and-a-half minutes of the display.

The home is located at 708 East 1st Street in Mechanicsville. You can get directions here. The lights turn on each night at 4:30 p.m., and music can be heard in your vehicle on 87.9 FM.
