Taylor-made Christmas Lights
Alex Winters of Oviedo, Fla., a community roughly 20 miles northeast of Orlando, has Taylor fever, of that there's no doubt. The 18-year-old senior at Hagerty High School has programmed the Christmas lights on his family's home to run in sync with Taylor's hit "Love Story."
The labor of love is meant to be a birthday present for Taylor, who turned 21 on Monday (Dec. 13). "I just love Taylor, and this is one of my favorite songs," Alex tells cmt.com. "The feedback from our neighbors has been all good."
"I haven't heard from Taylor (yet, hopefully)," Alex writes in an e-mail to Country Weekly. "I'm still trying to get the word out. Hopefully the video will find it's way to Taylor before Christmas next week!"
So what do Alex's schoolmates think? "Most of the people from my school think it's really cool!" says Alex. "A lot of them don't really believe it's actually our house when they first see the video, so they end up driving out to see it and they think it's pretty awesome."
The light show runs from 6:30 to 10 p.m. nightly and folks driving by can even tune their car radios to 91.7 FM and hear the song while they're watching the lights.
