We Dedicate Our Display To All Veterans
The Music in the show contains songs from the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, David Foster, Disney, Go Fish (a Christian rock group), Louis Armstrong, ManHeim Steamroller, Michael Jackson, Michael W. Smith, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and Whitney Houston, One of the songs, Christmas With A Capital C by Go Fish, talks about the true meaning of Christmas. The song emphasizes that this is the Christmas season, not the "Holiday" season. It reminds us that the reason we celebrate is because of the birth of Christ.
Our feature song this year is Hallelujah Chorus by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. During the beginning of this song you will hear the story of the birth of Christ as told by the children of Crossroads Community Church. We hope this story reminds you of the reason why we celebrate Christmas. During Michael Jackson's "We Are The World", you will hear Christmas greetings from people in 20 different countries in their own language. It is a reminder that no matter what our race, religion or national origin, Christmas is the time of year when Christians come together to celebrate the birth of Christ. During "The Greatest Love of All" by Whitney Houston, you will hear special stories as told by children. As adults, we should remember that time spent with family is a child's most treasured gift.

Check out a Video of our Show
On Dec 13, 2015 two large families came to visit Santa and had their pictures taken with him.
<==== The Gollner family of 10
The Galbranh family of 8 ===>
Santa's sleigh not only can hold lots of toys but many smiling children!
Last year was her first year to see the Sharpsville lights. The business card we received last year stayed on the refrigerator all year and she would periodically take it down and talk about the lights and Santa. We didn't tell her where we were going this year, as soon as we pulled up, her whole face lite up and she yelled "This is the place!" Thank you for your part in making memories with our granddaughter.

Red and Green Pinwheel
It spins, changes colors and is amazing
Candy Cane Pinwheel
All I can say is wow!
i have a issue with Christmas. I lost a neice who was 6 months old in 2005, and my 3 month old son in 2006. So i have lost faith in the holiday spirit. But to make my daughter and wife happy i set up a drive to come out there on Dec 8 but i was not knowing what i was gonna feel when I got there. Your wife walks up to the car, greets us and gives us candy canes and I teared up. I park on side of road to watch the show and santa walks up and greets us. After listening to and watching the show i was in tears. So i wiped my tears got out of the car and brought our daughter to see santa in his sleigh. I am writing this letter with tears in my eyes as you have given me back the spirit of christmas that I never thought I would get back and the feelings in my heart I didn't think I would feel again.
