Jonathan Smith and his family began to make lighted Christmas balls 12 years ago in Greensboro, NC. Now the majority of the neighborhood has joined in and created a beautiful spectacular showcase of lights for visitors to drive through in awe.
There is so much traffic at night that the neighborhood collects food for the local food banks. The Lighted Christmas Balls has sparked a block party around the making of the balls. A group of volunteers help disabled families make and lift the Christmas Balls to the sky.
The idea is spreading not only in Greensboro, NC but across the country. Go to lightedchristmasballs.blogspot.com to learn more about the balls and even download a PDF on how to make your own and bring something creative and fun to your neighborhood.
